Måneskin have today (August 9) announced that they’ve pulled out of this year’s Reading & Leeds festival due to “scheduling conflicts”.
The band were due to perform at Reading & Leeds festival later this month. The dual site event will return to Little John’s Farm in Reading and Bramham Park in Leeds on August Bank Holiday Weekend (August 26-28).
In a statement on social media, the band wrote: “We are sad to announce that unfortunately due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts, we are no longer able to perform at Readings & Leeds festival this year.
“We love and miss the UK and all of our beloved UK fans and we’re absolutely gutted to no longer be able to play these shows.”
They conclude the statement: “We’re really excited for the year to come and want to thank you for your support and patience, we’ll hopefully be back in the UK soon and we can’t wait to see you.”
