Two Door Cinema Club have pulled out of Latitude Festival, which is taking place this weekend (17th-20th July), due to illness. Frontman Alex Trimble was hospitalized with a severe stomach complaint, with Lily Allen stepping in as the replacement headliner.
After the announcement broke, the Smile singer received a fan backlash through Twitter, with Allen responding to criticism stating that she feels “exhausted by the nastiness”.
The London born singer will showcase material from her latest number one album, Sheezus, following her recent appearance at Glastonbury. The 29-year-old will join headliners Damon Albarn and The Black Keys, as well as a surprise guest performance for festivalgoers.
