Some truly disappointing news that Frightened Rabbit have had to withdraw from their headline spot at this year’s Stendhal Festival of Art. Seen by many as an astute booking for a local music festival, unfortunately their anticipated appearance has been scuppered due to a scheduling clash.
While this is a massive blow to the organisers, all of us here at Chordblossom know that Ross, John and the rest of the Stendhal team will be pulling out all the stops to make sure they get a suitable replacement and the festival is even better than ever.
There are however still many great bands on the line-up which you can read about here: Stendhal Festival of Art 2014 Line-up
The official statement from Stendhal:
“It is with much disappointment that Stendhal Festival of Art must announce that Frightened Rabbit have had to cancel their headlining spot at this year’s event. They had confirmed to play, as announced by ourselves and also by the band on various social media and online platforms, however they had already been booked by their representatives for the same date elsewhere, which only become apparent to us recently.
Nobody is more disappointed that this issue could not be resolved than the team at Stendhal, however this will not deter us from continuing with our plans for the summer and we are determined to make this the best Stendhal ever. We plan on announcing a replacement act in the coming weeks as and with just over five weeks to go our attention is now on our beautiful festival site, which looks amazing, along with the 500+ artisans en route to deliver the Best small to medium festival experience on the island.”
