The Guardian festival blog: Isle of Wight festival bans Jess Glynne for life after last-minute cancellation | Music
Jess Glynne has been banned from performing at the Isle of Wight festival after cancelling her 16 June set at the last minute. Festival boss John Giddings told the Mirror that Glynne’s behaviour was “shocking” and “shows no regard for people that bought a ticket”.
He said: “She will never be booked to play the Isle of Wight again.” Glynne has not commented. The Guardian has contacted representatives for the singer.
A festival spokesperson clarified that Giddings made his remarks on Monday morning, after representatives for Glynne cited exhaustion as the reason behind her withdrawal, but before the singer explained that she was “incredibly weak and full of anxiety” and that “my body sometimes gives up on me”. She apologised to fans and added: “I had to do what was right for my physical and mental health.”
