Chance the Rapper has been admitted to a hospital after falling ill over the weekend. The Chicago rhymer’s Coachella set scheduled for Sunday afternoon (April 20) has been canceled.

Chance’s management went on Facebook to make the announcement. The statement reads:

On behalf of Chance and our entire team- We sincerely regret to have to cancel our 2nd weekend at coachella.

Chance fell ill on Friday night & was admitted to the hospital today- Doctors and family are with him & he is expected to make a full recovery. Thank you for the prayers and support during this time, Chance, the CTR team and family deeply appreciate it.


According to Consequence of Sound, the ‘Confident’ rapper posted on Instagram a selfie of himself resting on a hospital bed with an IV in his arm. The photo has now since been removed.

Chance had tweeted on Friday (April 18) that he wasn’t feeling well following a gig in Las Vegas, but said he would make it to Coachella on Sunday.

Last weekend, Chance was joined onstage by Justin Bieber, one of the festival’s many surprising moments.
