Philadelphia’s Made In America Festival, which Lizzo and SZA were supposed to headline next month, has been canceled due to “severe circumstances outside of production control,” organizers announced Tuesday.
“This decision has been difficult and has not been made lightly nor without immense deliberation,” a statement posted to the festival’s social media continued, promising that the long-running event will return to Philly next year.
Other hip-hop acts on the canceled festival’s lineup included Ice Spice, Lil Yachty, Miguel, Latto, Coi Leray, Doechii and Metro Boomin.
The festival, launched by Jay-Z in 2012, was scheduled to take place on the city’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway from Sept. 2 to 3.
News of the cancellation comes days after three of Lizzo’s former background dancers filed a lawsuit against her over alleged sexual harassment, a hostile work environment and for pressuring them to participate in sex shows.
The body-positive “Truth Hurts” singer denied all of the allegations, claiming they’re “as unbelievable as they sound and too outrageous to not be addressed.”
The Post has contacted reps for Lizzo, SZA and the Made in America Festival for comment.
The “About Damn Time” singer has lost nearly 220,000 Instagram followers since the lawsuit was filed on Aug. 1.
However, Grimes, the 35-year-old Canadian pop singer and Elon Musk’s ex, publicly defended Lizzo Sunday, claiming the “Good As Hell” singer is a “good person.”
