J Hus will replace Asap Rocky on this year’s Wireless Festival following the rapper’s arrest for assault in Sweden.
Footage emerged earlier this week of Rocky and members of his team apparently pushing a man to the floor on the street.
Rocky later posted his own footage of the confrontation to his Instagram page, which sees one of the men involved hitting the rapper’s bodyguard with a pair of headphones.
The rapper was ordered to be held for two weeks in pre-trial detention while police investigated the case. Prosecutor Fredrik Karlsson said after a hearing at Stockholm District Court that Rocky would be held on a lesser assault charge than the lawyer had originally demanded.
Set to miss out on several upcoming festival performances, including Barcelona’s Sonar Festival and Germany’s Splash Festival, Rocky will also miss out on London’s Wireless Festival.
