Fontaines DC have announced plans to cancel a handful of their upcoming festival appearances, “due to health issues”.
The band took to their Instagram account this weekend to confirm that they’ll no longer be appearing at Paleo Nyon, Truck, Deer Shed, Y Not and Thing festivals, while apologising “to all of you who were looking forward to attending these festivals”.
Their message reads as follows:
“This message is difficult to communicate to all of you. Due to health issues we find ourselves in the uncomfortable position of having to cancel the following festivals: Paleo Nyon Festival (CH), Truck Festival (UK), Deer Shed Festival (UK), Y Not Festival (UK) and Thing Festival (USA). We want to make sure that everyone knows that performing is one of the most important and fulfilling parts of all of our lives, and we will do all in our power to ensure that none of our tours are affected by this.
We apologise to all of you who were looking forward to attending these festivals. We look forward to seeing you at all the remaining dates this summer.
All of our love and appreciation,
