Ski Mask The Slump God is set to headline Longitude festival tonight as replacement for A$AP Rocky.

It's after the rapper was arrested in Sweden for alleged assault earlier this week.

Festival organisers say, 'Due to the Swedish authorities decision to continue to detain A$AP 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!'
