Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, or OFWGTA, have had to pull out of their scheduled set at Leeds festival after being nominated for two MVT VMA’s for New Artist of the Year and Video of the Year for their video ‘Yonkers’.
The L.A collective led by Tyler the Creator has been hitting off over here because of their injection of fresh air into the hip hop scene combined with street-cool mixtapes and skateboarding imagery . The album Goblin received rave reviews despite the extremely controversial lyrics.
The Collective were one of the most anticipated acts of the festival.
Their facebook page it explained that had Tyler achieved a lifelong dream of being nominated for the awards so has offered give all Leeds festival ticket holders a pre-sale option for their next show in the north of England.
Reading ticket holders will still be able to see Tyler the Creator, Frank Ocean, Mellowhype, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Mike G and the Jet of Tomorrow at Reading Festival on the NME Stage at Reading Festival on 27 August.
