London Grammar have become the latest Splendour On The Grass casualty, dropping out of this weekend’s Australian music festival “due to illness”.
Hannah Reid’s illness has forced London Grammar out of the event.
In the past week Splendour In The Grass has lost headline act Two Door Cinema Club as well as Nashville band The Wild Feathers.
City and Colour have been upgraded to headliner of this weekend’s festival and Foals and Mt Warning added to the bill. Last year the festival suffered the last moment cancellation by Frank Ocean but lucked out when then newcomer Lorde stepped up for the challenge.
Overnight London Grammar posted on Facebook:
“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”.
A replacement for London Grammar is expected sometime today.
UPDATE: The Presets will replace London Grammar At Splendour In The Grass
