Iceland volcano continues to cause more acts to cancel Coachella appearances

Earlier we reported that the band “The Cribs” and “Frightened Rabbit” had to cancel their performances at Coachella due to the cancellation of all flights out of Europe caused by the volcano ash from Iceland. However, some bands such as Thom Yorke, Gorillaz, Muse, and Hot Chip, were fortunate enough to have made it over to the U.S. before the flights were cancelled. We thought the first series of cancellations were it for the weekend, but it looks like the volcano ash has seized to disappear and more acts have been compromised.

The twitter for Coachella just tweeted the following statement, breaking more bad news to the weekend passholders.

“we’re sorry to report that Talvin Singh, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and Gary Numan won’t make it to the festival”

Gary Numan shared the sad news with his fans on his website with the following post:

“It is now 5PM here in the UK. A short while ago I received a message saying that both the San Francisco and Los Angeles shows had sold out which cheered me up no end. A few minutes after that I received another message saying that British Airways have cancelled our flights to the US tomorrow which brought everything straight back down again. We have called every transatlantic airline that operates from the UK and not only are they not flying, they are not currently accepting any new bookings, not until tuesday for many of them. So, even if they do allow planes to fly later on sunday or monday, and that’s a very big if at the moment, we can’t book seats on any of them. Even I have to admit that it’s not looking good. As soon as we know more I’ll update you all. I can’t tell you how disappointed we all are.”

We hope that this is the end of cancellations for Coachella.
