ASAP Rocky will no longer be headlining Longitude Festival tonight and a replacement has been announced.

The US rapper was arrested in Stockholm earlier this week following his alleged involvement in a fight with two other men.

MCD has now confirmed that ASAP Rocky will be replaced by Ski Mask The Slump God as the headliner for the opening night of the festival tonight.

The festival organisers commented, ‘Due to the Swedish authorities decision to continue to detain ASAP Rocky he will no longer be able to headline Longitude tonight.

‘It’s not all bad news though, we are delighted to announce that Ski Mask The Slump God will close the main stage tonight instead!’

The Independent reports that Swedish authorities confirmed ASAP Rocky will now spend two weeks in pre-trial detention following his arrest.

Chance the Rapper and Lil Uzi Vert also recently pulled out of their Longitude performances, while Kojaque and Pusha T were added. Stormzy was announced as the replacement for Chance's headline slot on Saturday.
