Shura is among some of the most anticipated acts at this year’s Wonderfruit Festival.
But on Monday the festival announced the synthpop singer-songwriter had pulled out her performance, also her Thailand debut, just a few days before the Pattaya festival kicks off, citing “personal reasons”. Reader her full statement below:
“I’m absolutely gutted to say that, due to personal reasons, I’m having to cancel Wonderfruit Festival in Thailand. It’s never fun to cancel shows and I’m hugely sorry to anyone who was looking forward to me playing. I was really looking forward to finally playing a show in your part of the world and whilst I won’t be making it on this occasion I promise to come back one day. Big love, Shura.”
According to Wonderfruit, the announcement will be made on the British singer’s official page soon.
Shura was initially scheduled to take Sunday night’s 8.30pm slot on Living Stage, preceding Grammy-nominated compatriot Lianne La Havas. She is best known for “2Shy” and “Touch”.
Wonderfruit takes place at The Fields at Siam Country Club, Pattaya from February 16-19. Beside music, visitors can expect stunning art installations and theatrical performances, talks and workshops as well as wellness and outdoor activities.
Four-day passes are currently available online for THB5,500. After today (Feb 15), the price goes up to THB6,000 at door. Check out the festival’s website for more information on securing your tickets, travel, and accommodations.
