The annual Life is Beautiful music, art and food festival wrapped up Sunday night in Las Vegas with performances by Post Malone, Vampire Weekend and Zedd and Phantogram.
However, it's a missed performance that most people seem to be talking about. Lil Wayne fans were notified about 10 minutes after his scheduled start time that he would not be performing.

Some people are even demanding ticket refunds because of the missed performance.

According to XXL magazine, this is the 4th show that Wayne has missed while on his recent tour run, including a canceled show on the Blink-182 tour last week.
Some people seemed concern though after the recent cancellations.
Don’t know what happen to Lil Wayne tonight at life is beautiful but I hope he is ok!!

Other people were speculating over the weekend that it had to do with one of the rapper's songs that contains the sound of gunfire.
So rumors are that lil Wayne didn’t show up @lifeisbeautiful because he couldn’t use the sound of gun shots at his set. That’s how traumatized Las Vegas is and all around the US.Loud explosive sounds and we freak but refuse to still do anything about it. #LifeisBeautiful2019
