NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Local singer Kevin Gates will not take the stage and perform at this weekend’s Voodoofest.

A Tweet from festival organizers said: “Unfortunately Kevin Gates is unable to perform at #VoodooFest due to an unforeseen incarceration. Keep an eye here & on the App for updates.”

Organizers did not elaborate on what prompted the ”unforeseen incarceration” but the Associated Press is reporting that Gates was sentenced to 180 days for kicking a woman at a Florida concert last year.
