The Rhythm, Wine, and Brews Festival and Travis Scott have reached a deal and a $200,000 lawsuit against Scott will be dropped.
The Blast reports that a $217,500 deposit was returned to Empire Music Ventures, the promoter of RWB Exp, and the case will be dismissed.
We’re told the person who booked Scott was not his official booker and the rapper had never agreed to do the show. One source called it a simple situation of someone jumping the gun and saying they could get Travis when they couldn’t.
Celebrity powerhouse attorney, Perry Wander, tells The Blast that the lawsuit filed by Empire Music Ventures has been settled in full to the satisfaction of both parties.
The RWB Exp was set to announce Scott as the headliner for the 2019 festival, then suddenly cancelled the entire event.

Due to a last minute cancellation by our festival headliner, we have no other choice than to cancel the 2019 Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience. This decision has not been an easy one, however, it has always been the upmost importance that we deliver an excellent experience for our festival guests. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to returning in 2020 bigger and better than before.
Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience claimed in the lawsuit they believed they had booked Scott for $400,000 for a 75-minute show and put down a $217,500 deposit with Scott and the manager of his company, called The Odd Group. They claimed that after the deposit was paid on December 3, Scott’s people called and canceled the performance with no explanation.
The lawsuit has now been resolved to the full satisfaction of all parties.
