N.Y. rapper Azealia Banks may be forced to cancel her appearance at this month's Reading & Leeds Festivals happening over the bank holiday weekend, from Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th August after coming down with a severe throat infection.

The 'Yung Rapunxel' singer has been forced to pull out of America's Lollapalooza, Canada's Osheaga,  Norway's Oya Festival, Finland's Flow Festival, and Sweden's Way Out West "due to a severe throat infection" and it looks like she may cancel all her August performances.

Last year, Banks cancelled a handful of U.K. and European summer dates, including shows at Lovebox, Rock Ness, Park Life and Rough Beats. eFestivals will update this page once we get the official lowdown from festival organisers on Banks' appearances over the bank holiday.
