Björk cancels upcoming festival tour dates

The Icelandic singer will not perform at La Route Du Rock, Pitchfork Festival and Iceland Airwaves

Björk has cancelled a handful of festival dates due to a “scheduling conflict beyond [her] control”.

The Icelandic singer had been set to headline La Route Du Rock in France on August 15, Pitchfork Festival in Paris on October 30 and Iceland Airwaves on November 7, all of which have been dropped from her tour.

“Björk had been really been looking forward to the concerts,” the statement read, “and we will work on rescheduling the cancelled dates as soon as possible.”

Björk’s headline set at Wilderness this weekend has not been affected.


This year the Icelandic musician has been promoting her ninth studio album, ‘Vulnicura’, which she surprised fans with in January when she rush released it two months early. Björk explained on Facebook soon after that ‘Vulnicura’ is a “heartbreak album” and later went on to mention that the LP was influenced by the breakdown of her relationship with artist Matthew Barney.

Björk will no longer appear at the following festivals:

La Route Du Rock, Saint-Malo, France (August 15)
Pitchfork Festival, Paris, France (October 30)
Iceland Airwaves, Reykjavik, Iceland (November 7)
