The Rakes cancel Bestival show
05 September 2005
The band also cancelled their appearance at yesterday's (Sunday) appearance at the Electric
Picnic in Dublin.
A statement from The Rakes explained that Donohoe has been told to rest due to exhaustion and a throat infection.
The beleaguered band recently battled through the Reading and Leeds without Donohoe, with
members of Bloc Party, Maximo Park and Towers Of London filling in.
It is not yet known whether a replacement acts will be found so late in the day. Either way, The Magic Numbers, Mylo, Royksopp, The Go! Team, Super Furry Animals and loads more will still be there.
Bestival takes place next weekend (9-11 September) at Robin Hill Country Park, Isle Of Wight.
A few weekend tickets are still available. For more information and to buy tickets click here.
