Azealia Banks has cancelled her Glastonury performance on The Other stage and will be replaced by Irish rockers The Strypes tomorrow night (27.06.16)
Azealia Banks has pulled out of performing at Glastonbury.
The 24-year-old New York rapper was due to appear on The Other stage at 9pm tomorrow night (27.06.15) but news of her late cancellation broke on Twitter today (26.06.15), however a reason has yet to been given and the star has also refrained from releasing a statement.
Glastonbury's official Twitter account posted: "Azealia Banks has had to pull out of her Saturday Other Stage performance. She will be replaced by The Strypes."
And the 'Ice Princess' singer has been quiet on social media in the past few days, but is reportedly busy preparing for her first ever acting role in the upcoming film 'Coco'.
Glasto organisers picked young rockers The Strypes - a four-piece band hailing from Ireland - to replace the singer's slot.
Meanwhile, indie rockers The Charlatans opened The Other Stage this morning (26.06.15) at 11am as special guests.
Everything Everything, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Rudimental and Mark Ronson will also grace world famous event today, while Florence + the Machine will headline The Pyramid Stage tonight.
