Rinse FM cancels Azealia Banks’ concert appearance

Azealia Banks will not be appearing as the headline act at Rinse FM’s Born and Bred Festival after comments were made on Twitter by the rapper.

You can read about Azealia’s recent incident on various news websites, but in short relate to an argument and name-calling episode with Zayn Malik.

Born & Bred takes place at Haggerston Park between June 4-5, organised by the London-based community radio station which has been broadcasting on 106.8 FM since 2010.

Rinse FM tweeted a statement on Wednesday afternoon saying: “We have decided to cancel Azealia Banks’ headline appearance at Rinse | Born & Bred Festival.

“Rinse | Born & Bred Festival is a celebration of rave culture and has been created for EVERYONE. We celebrate inclusivity and equality.”
