Azealia Banks cancels Electric Picnic appearance
Lightning strikes twice...
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 30 Aug 2012
There’s disappointment for Azealia Banks fans with the singer pulling out of Electric Picnic for a second time.
The first cancellation was down to recording commitments. Now having freed up time for the festival she’s citing exhaustion as the reason for her no-show.
“Following on from reports earlier announcing that Azealia Banks cancelled her performance at Ibiza Rocks, we can confirm she also has pulled out of Electric Picnic 2012 due to exhaustion,” reads an official Picnic statement. “We wish her a speedy recovery!”
Banks was due to headline the Cosby Stage on Friday night.
Yesterday's pulled Ibiza Rocks show followed a Tuesday night set in Mallorca, which ended prematurely.
The same day found her tweeting: “That champagne hangover is hardcore. I need water and crisps with champagne” and “When the gnat lands in your wine... You scoop him out and finish the glass.”
