DaBaby’s festival season just got a whole lot less busy. A week ago, at Miami’s Rolling Loud Festival, the North Carolina rap star made derogatory comments about gay people and AIDS: “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up!… Fellas, if you ain’t sucking dick in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up!” DaBaby’s attempt to explain those comments made things worse: “[My gay fans] don’t got AIDS. My gay fans, they take care of themselves. They ain’t no nasty gay n***as.” Even days later, attempting to apologize, DaBaby still portrayed himself as a victim: “y’all cheer the fuck up & be proud of who you are cuz you can’t make me feel less of myself.”

Governors Ball is one of those early-season music festivals that, rather than skip two straight years due to the pandemic, has pushed back its 2021 event to the fall. Instead of the usual early June dates, the fest is planned for Sept. 24-26. Gov Ball is leaving behind its longtime home of Randall’s Island for Citi Field, the Queens baseball stadium that serves as home base for the New York Mets — so in some ways it’s like promoters Founders Entertainment are resurrecting The Meadows, the fall festival they threw in that area in 2016 and 2017. And as of today, we know who’s performing.
