Azealia Banks has pulled out of her performance at this year’s Glastonbury.

The Harlem rapper was scheduled to take to The Other Stage tomorrow afternoon (June 27) but will instead been replaced by Irish band The Strypes. The reason for the change has not been revealed.



Drenge opened this year's Glastonbury Festival yesterday evening with a rowdy performance that drew thousands to a packed out Williams' Green area. Taking place on one of the more modestly-sized stages, but one which is in the few to host performances the evening before the festival proper begins, the Sheffield duo played what was the first major set of this weekend's event.

Wolf Alice were next up and began with a rousing rendition of 'Fluffy'. Singer Ellie Rowsell led the band through a heavy set including 'You're A Germ' and 'Lisbon'. Eoin Loveless of Drenge joined the band for final song 'Moaning Lisa Smile', freeing Rowsell to get up close and personal with fans.
