Florence+The Machine cancels Pukkelpop, Balthazar replaces

Florence Welch has cancelled her show at Pukkelpop due to medical reasons. The global superstar, originally scheduled to perform on Sunday night, announced through her management that she will unfortunately not be able to attend Pukkelpop.

"Sadly, upon medical advice, Florence + The Machine will not be able to perform at Lowlands and Pukkelpop this weekend. We appreciate your understanding and patience."

Frederik Luyten, spokesperson for Pukkelpop, states: ‘It was quite a challenge to replace an artist of this caliber on such short notice, but Balthazar - who announced their temporary retirement barely a week ago - will be back on stage a little earlier than expected. The Pukkelpop family wishes Florence a speedy recovery and we hope to see her soon again in Belgium.

Balthazar will be performing on Sunday from 8:15 to 9:30 p.m. on Pukkelpop's Main Stage. The festival is completely sold out.
