Belle and Sebastian announced they will no longer be playing any of the June festival dates due to “unexpected circumstances.” The announcement came via a post on the band’s official website today.
The band expressed sympathy to those who purchased tickets to see them. The canceled appearances were abroad; the band says their North American tour will go on as planned. Read their entire statement below.
Due to unexpected circumstances we are sorry to say that we now won’t be playing any festival dates in June. Apologies to anyone who purchased tickets hoping to see us at Southside or Hurricane in Germany, Best Kept Secret in The Netherlands, Bravalla in Sweden, or Escape to Music, Istanbul. The USA tour will go ahead as scheduled in July as will all other festivals over the summer.
