Visa Issues Prevent Benga From Joining Skream for Coachella, U.S. Tour Dates

Fans across the global electronic music community are sending their love to Benga after he revealed he's pulling out of his upcoming U.S. tour with Skream due to last-minute visa issues. 

One of dubstep's most influential figures, the U.K. producer said his visa process "hit a snag," ultimately delaying his ability to travel and perform stateside this month. Benga took to social media to share the unfortunate news with fans.

"I am absolutely gutted, my team and I have worked tirelessly on making this happen," Benga said. "But hey, I'm respecting the process and staying positive. I've [sic] am doing well and have had the best two years health wise and I am ready to get back out there. The journey hasn’t been easy, but getting the chance to tour again with Skream has been amazing."

The affected shows include Benga's four-night run with Skream and SGT Pokes in Denver. Skream will now take the stage with fellow dubstep icon Mala for a show in San Francisco later this month.

In place of Benga's helping hand, he said they've "called on some of the OG’s to step up in my place" in an effort to fill the void while he sorts out his unfortunate travel issues.

One bright side in the announcement is that despite not being able to join Skream at Coachella for a b2b set later this week, they've announced a performance together at the iconic Indio festival's 2025 edition.
