Days prior, Kanye is expected to perform at the annual X Games festival in Texas.

Upwards of 100,000 people are expected in Austin when the X Games rollerblade through town June 5-8. Homies are going to need some music. Today, organizers announced that Kanye West, the Flaming Lips, and Pretty Lights will headline a 13-act bill that also includes local Gary Clark Jr. Sounds like an ACL Fest bill, right? Also expected at the Austin360 Amphitheater during the city’s first tango with extreme sports Olympics: Mac Miller, Bad Religion, Dillon Francis, Mayer Hawthorne, and Slightly Stoopid, with an undercard made up of Wavves, Cash Cash, FMLYBND, and Candyland. No schedule’s been announced yet. (Austin Chronicle)

In early July, the G.O.O.D. Music boss will pack up and head overseas for another music event.

Kanye West, Drake and Bruno Mars have been announced as headliners for this year’s Wireless festival. It will be Kanye West and Bruno Mars’ only UK live appearances in 2014. For the first time this year (2014), the event will take place across two sites in both London and Birmingham. It has moved from the Olympic Park in London to Finsbury Park and will also take place in Birmingham’s Perry Park between July 4-6. (NME)

Kanye sparked backlash back in 2008 over his Bonnaroo performance.

Kanye West is looking to make a triumphant return to the Bonnaroo Music Festival this summer (14), six years after he was booed on the same stage. The Stronger rapper has been named one of the headliners for the Manchester, Tennessee event, marking the first time he will grace the festival since his disastrous set in 2008. West was one of the headliners that year and he made thousands of fans wait hours for his performance, taking to the stage at nearly 4.30am. The set-up for his show took longer than expected, and by the time he walked onstage, his fans’ patience had snapped and they booed the rapper during his performance. (Contact Music)
