Sam Fender has pulled out of Glastonbury two days before he was due to hit the John Peel tent.
The 25-year-old singer was set to perform at the festival held at Worthy Farm on 28 June but announced hes had to cancel his performance because he needs longer to recover from illness.
In a message on Twitter, he wrote: Absolutely gutted to share that Ill not be able to perform at Glastonbury this weekend.
Its always been a dream to play at Worthy Farm and I wouldnt miss it for the world but the docs have told me I need longer to recover from illness. Hopefully well get the chance to return next year.
Sam has also cancelled appearances at Les Eurockeenes, Down The Rabbit Hole, and Barn on the Farm festivals, as well as a show in Bristol on Thursday 27 June.
He added: Sadly our performances at Les Eurockeenes, Down The Rabbit Hole and Barn on the Farm festivals next week are also cancelled.
Massive apologies to all you and especially those in Bristol tomorrow, your tickets will be valid for another rescheduled show on August 9th or you can get a refund, he continued.
Massive love to you all and thank you for your understanding.
The Hypersonic Missiles hitmaker then ended his note by teasing that new music would be coming soon.
Sams decision to pull out of the festival comes as Snow Patrol have also cancelled their appearance on The Other Stage, as band member Johnny McDaid – who plays piano and guitar – needs to have immediate surgery on his neck.
The Just Say Yes singers had no choice but to cancel their slot as they wouldnt be able to find a replacement in time due to the fact that guitarist and backing vocalist Nathan Connolly is still out because hes suffering from nerve damage.
