King Princess is the latest artist to pull out of this weekend’s festivals. Earlier today, Juice WRLD failed to turn up for his set on the Main Stage at Reading, citing “flight issues”.
Last week, Lil Uzi Vert also pulled out of the festivals earlier this week, due to “unforeseen circumstances”.
King Princess recently shared a new video for her single ‘Prophet’ in which she gets baked into a cake and eaten.
