Last year, Goldenvoice cut ties with FYF founder Sean Carlson after he was accused of sexual misconduct and assault by several women. Goldenvoice and AEG later bought Carlson's stake in the LA fest.
This now makes three major festivals that Janet Jackson is playing this year, including NYC's Panorama and San Francisco's Outside Lands, the latter of which she was announced for earlier today. Janet also plays this year's Essence Festival (which she's played before).
