We’ve got kind of a good news/bad news situation for all you kids getting super pumped for the ever-looming 2015 incarnation of Laneway Festival. Organisers of the trend-setting summer sonic spectacular have announced that, due to mounting ill health brought on by the rigours of touring, previously announced act Lykke Li is pulling out of the whole festival, and cancelling her sideshows in both Sydney and Melbourne.
“I’m incredibly sorry to announce that I’m no longer able to play in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore for Laneway Festival. It’s been a long time coming, but unfortunately tour life has caught up with me and it’s been recommended that I take a break. I’m devastated, but know I will return. Thank you for all the support, and I sincerely hope I can make it up to you at a later date.“
