Latitude takes place between 23rd and 25th July in Henham Park, Suffolk.
Dublin post-punk group Fontaines D.C. have been forced to cancel their scheduled gig tonight in Lincoln after a band member contracted Covid-19.
The Grammy-nominated band will no longer appear at Latitude Festival this weekend, with all musicians and crew now in isolation.
"We regret to announce that during routine testing, a band member tested positive for Covid-19 this morning. Band and crew are now self-isolating," Fontaines D.C. wrote on their social media pages this afternoon. "Therefore we sadly have to cancel our show in Lincoln tonight and our appearance at Latitude Festival this Saturday."
"We were really looking forward to it but we will see you all again soon," the band added. "Please contact your ticket provider for information on refunds for Lincoln."
The five-piece act were set to begin a fresh round of gigs after their hugely successful sophomore album A Hero's Death was released on July 31, 2020. Unfortunately, Covid got in the way of that plan.
Alfie Templeman has also been forced to cancel his slot at Latitude Festival, having contracted the virus. The 18-year-old English artist already been replaced on the bill by Sports Team, who will be heading over for the Saturday (24th July) after their Margate spectacular tomorrow to play.
