Sziget organisers say they received the following from the management of London Grammar:
“"We are very sorry to announce that we will not be performing at Sziget Festival as billed. Due to a lengthy touring schedule over the last year and a half, Hannah has suffered with vocal fatigue which has forced us to cancel, at last minute, a number of recent shows.
In order to maintain Hannah's voice and all of our well being, we have made the decision to withdraw from some of our upcoming festival performances.
We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this causes and regret any disappointment of both our fans and festival organisers. Nevertheless we feel that our decision to reduce our workload is of great importance at this time. We hope you can understand and forgive us for the cancellation."
