Ladyhawke cancels Oxegen and T in the Park

Ladyhawke has been forced to pull out of her set at Oxegen Festival in Ireland due to ill health. She also had to pull out of her set at T in the Park in Scotland yesterday (Sunday 12).

The singer did make it to Oxegen Festival yesterday, on her arrival she visited the medical tent to receive treatment for a fever and flu symptoms she had had the last couple of days. Over the next few hours she deteriorated to the point where she had to pull out of her show, she could barely talk - let alone sing. 

Another doctor looked her over and said her symptoms were too severe to be traveling and playing shows this weekend. Due to the nature of festivals and the current fear around the flu, the doctor thought it best she rest for the weekend and not expose her band, crew and other festival goers to her bug. Pip is gutted about having to pull out of two festivals she has been looking forward to playing but says she feels "really really shit."
