ASAP Rocky's Longitude appearance in doubt as rapper is detained by Swedish authorities

Rapper ASAP Rocky has been detained by Swedish authorities for two weeks in an investigation into an alleged assault.

He was arrested on Tuesday in relation to the incident in Stockholm last weekend and appeared in court this morning in relation to the alleged assault.

ASAP Rocky was due to headline the main stage at the Longitude Festival in Dublin tonight, with his performance now in doubt.

It is also being headlined by Stormzy and Cardi B, with Wild Youth and Anne Marie also performing across the weekend.

Thousands will attend the festival over the next three days, with the gates opening from 1.30pm.
