In a massive blow to fans of London Grammar, the band have announced their withdrawal from the Splendour in the Grass lineup.
On their Facebook page last night:
“It’s with great sadness that we must announce the cancellation of our trip to Australia & Splendour in the Grass this week due to illness. This is an incredibly sad situation for us as our last visit was one of the most memorable of our careers, but we do not feel that we can currently deliver the level of performance that you all deserve from us. Our fans in Australia have been hugely supportive of our music since the very beginning, and it pains us to have to disappoint any of you. We are going to do everything we can to make sure we are back down under as soon as possible and will reschedule our Sydney & Melbourne shows and give you more details very shortly.”
This follows news last week of Two Door Cinema Club pulling out of the event.
Splendour takes place Thursday 24 July through Sunday 27 July at Byron Parklands. No news yet regarding refunds or replacement acts. Visit http://splendourinthegrass.com
