Iggy Azalea has responded to tweets claiming she pulled a "no show" at the last minute for her Reading Festival appearance on Friday (August 23).

The Australian rapper had originally announced via Twitter that she would not be performing at either Reading or Leeds due to the events clashing with this year's MTV Video Music Awards in New York. She was due to play the Radio 1 Dance Stage on Friday in Reading and Saturday in Leeds (August 24).

Tweeting this morning, Azalea responded to angry tweets from fans who were unaware of the cancellations. She wrote:

Green Day headlined the first day of Reading Festival last night, playing their 1994 classic album 'Dookie' in full in a hits-packed set. Meanwhile, Biffy Clyro brought day one at Leeds Festival to a close, headlining on the Main Stage for the first time in their career.

The action continues today with Eminem headlining the Main Stage at Reading. Other artists appearing across the site include White Lies, Alt-J, Swim Deep, The 1975 and Palma Violets.

Over in Leeds, Green Day top the bill, whilst Deftones, Frank Turner and Bring Me The Horizon also play on the Main Stage. Skrillex headlines the NME/Radio 1 Stage, with A$AP Rocky, Major Lazer, Peace and Bastille also due to perform.
