Björk has cancelled the remaining European dates on her town, including Pitchfork Music Festival Paris, and additional France festival date, as well as a hometown date at Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavik.
No specific reason has been disclosed regarding the cancellations, however, Bjork’s management has given a statement reading that the cancellations are “beyond our control,” and that,”Björk had been really been looking forward to the concerts and we will work on rescheduling the cancelled dates as soon as possible.”
La Route du Rock festival will be partially reimbursing concertgoers for Björk’s date. “Despite our numerous calls and messages, no justification has been given to us so far,” reads a statement posted on the festival’s website.
“We feel trapped and it is with great bitterness that we must resign ourselves to accept this inexplicable cancellation which has happened only one week before the festival. We activated all our networks and we are doing everything we can to announce an artist to replace the Icelandic diva before the end of the week.”
Tickets for Pitchfork Festival Paris and Iceland Airwaves will be fully refundable, according to Consequence of Sound.
