A statement from A$AP Rocky’s management: “A$AP Rocky is being detained in a Swedish jail for an unknown period of time for acting in self-defense during an altercation that took place. Due to this unfortunate situation he is forced to cancel his European festival and tour dates in July.” Due to this, Sónar regrets to announce that A$AP Rocky will no longer be performing at Sónar 2019. This development comes despite the best efforts of Sónar and A$AP Rocky’s management to find a solution, and we’d like to thank fans for their patience over the past week. Sónar is working hard to find a replacement artist for Friday 19th July, to be announced soon.

Recently, the governor of the Swedish prison where Rocky is being held refuted claims that the prison was “inhumane” and “was like walking into a toilet.”

Fredrik Wallin, the governor of the Kronoberg prison, said that it’s in “good condition.”

Rocky remains detained as authorities investigate the fight that occurred between Rocky and his entourage, and two men that he claimed kept following them in Stockholm.
