The Iceland singer had previously been set to top both the Spanish and Portuguese festival bills, but has confirmed this is no longer the case.
Reasoning for the cancellation has been noted to be due to an inflamed nodule to her vocal cords.
Primavera released this statement:
” After canceling some shows due to an inflamed nodule, Björk’s specialist doctor advised her to keep resting and not to continue with the shows as they could bring a permanent damage to her voice. We are very sorry about any inconvenience this might bring, and appreciate your understanding. We wish Björk a quick and full recovery to continue enjoying her talent soon.”
The festival is still set to go ahead as usual, taking place in Barcelona between 30 May – 3 June and Porto from 7 to 10 June.
