Kim Petras Cancels Summer Festival Performances Due to ‘Health Issues’

Kim Petras is taking a break to heal.

The 31-year-old superstar took to social media on Wednesday (April 24) to announce that she is canceling her scheduled festival performances this summer. “My buns, I’m devastated to be writing this but I’m going through some health issues and under medical advice I have had to make the hard decision to not perform at festivals this summer,” Petras wrote, without providing details on what health issues she is experiencing. “I love u so much and I’ll make it up to you and be back better than ever very soon.”

Petras was scheduled to perform at a number of festivals this summer, including Primavera Sound in Barcelona, Spain; Mighty Hoopla in London, England; Primavera Porto in Porto, Portugal; and Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle, Wash. Last week, Petras was announced as the headliner for LadyLand 2024, the annual Pride festival produced by New York nightlife connoisseur Ladyfag.

In September, Petras dropped her French-pop album Problématique via Repbulic / Amigo Records. Across 10 tracks, Petras delves into ecstatic pop sounds, ranging from funk (“Born Again”), to R&B-pop (“Deeper”) to bratty, materialistic pop jams (“All She Wants” featuring Paris Hilton). As she sings on the titular track, “I’m a little bit dramatic, little real, a little plastic/ I just keep on wreaking havoc.”

The album was Petras’ second of 2023 — in June, she unveiled Feed the Beast, her long-awaited Republic debut. She continued her music release schedule into 2024, with Slut Pop Miami arriving in February.
