Fever Ray has cancelled her much-anticipated set at Budapest’s Sziget festival tonight (August 14).
Fever Ray has cited illness for her cancellation. According to Hungarian site Index, the line-up for the A38 tent is now:
18:30 Nothing But Thieves
22:15 Zara Larsson
00:15 Gorgon City live
01:25 Delta Heavy
Fever Ray is due to play Pitchfork Paris later this year, along with Blood Orange, Bon Iver and Mac DeMarco. Tickets for the festival, which will take place at the Grande Halle De La Villette on November 1-3 are on sale now. You can purchase tickets here.
As well as the main festival in November, there will be two nights of ‘Avant Garde’ in the Bastille area of the city on October 30-31 – which will “showcase the best of the international independent music scene” in small venues and clubs.
On Saturday night (August 11), Mumford & Sons performed three brand new songs at the festival. The band debuted ‘See A Sign’, ‘Woman’ and ‘Guiding Light’.
NME described ‘See A Sign’ as “continuing down the arena-rock path of last LP ‘Wilder Mind’” while ‘Woman’ was a “brooding, electronics-led number, framed around a clipped drum machine and spacey synths.” ‘Guiding Light’ saw the band return to their folkier roots.
