Azealia Banks cancels Bestival 2012 appearance
The Other Tribe replace her in The Big Top
Chris Eustace - 08 September 2012
The ‘212’ star was due to perform in The Big Top today at 4:25pm, but after her name was suddenly removed from the festival’s Youtube streaming schedule, her cancellation was confirmed on the Bestival Twitter page, along with some other timetable changes:
They later responded to another tweet saying: “yes she cancelled :(“
“Ok... So unfortunately Azealia Banks can't make it to Bestival, we're gonna take the slot and make her proud! 4.25, Big Top.”
There’s been no word from the rapper/singer yet on why she couldn’t make it to Bestival, but it comes after a summer in which she cancelled a raft of UK festival appearances in order to finish her debut album, although she still played Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend and Reading & Leeds, with a UK tour still set for this autumn.
