Héloïse Letissier was due to perform at the festival this weekend (April 20) but tweeted earlier today that she flew home to be with her family following the death of her mother earlier this week (April 16).
Letissier wrote: “I can only write very simple sentences. I lost my mother on Tuesday night. I came home to go through this ordeal with my loved ones – I won’t be able to sing this Saturday. I kiss you.”
Je n’arrive qu’à écrire des phrases très simples. J’ai perdu ma mère dans la nuit de mardi. Je suis rentrée pour traverser cette épreuve avec mes proches – je ne pourrai pas chanter ce samedi. Je vous embrasse.

Letissier was due to perform with Blood Orange at the Santa Barbara Bowl in California this evening (April 18) but this has also been cancelled.
The ‘Girlfriend’ singer will take billing at the Victoria Park festival on Sunday May 26, alongside an impressive supporting line-up that includes the likes of Metronomy, Maribou State, Beach House and Kurt Vile and the Violators.
