Frank Ocean has pulled out of Barcelona’s annual Primavera Sound.
Ocean’s headlining set was scheduled for this Friday, June 2, and has been canceled “due to production delays beyond his control.” The festival organizers released a statement over the weekend on Twitter, stating “the artist has apologized and has reiterated his wish to come to Barcelona soon.”
Ocean has already canceled his appearances at Hangout Music Festival and Sasquatch Music Festival, citing similar reasons, but is still scheduled to appear at Denmark’s NorthSide Festival and Parklife Festival in Manchester in the coming weeks. He also scheduled to perform at NYC’s Panorama Festival and LA’s FYF Fest later this summer.
The xx have officially taken Ocean’s initial Friday night headlining spot, and Jamie xx will now perform a solo set for Primavera Sound. Other headliners for Primavera Sound this weekend include Arcade Fire and Bon Iver.
Festival organizers are offering refunds for Friday June 2 tickets due to the Frank Ocean cancellation. Ticket holders can apply here.
