Frank Ocean has cancelled another festival appearance, this time his set at this week’s Primavera Sound in Barcelona. The festival said that Ocean was bailing on his set there “due to production delays beyond his control. The artist has apologised and has reiterated his wish to come to Barcelona soon”.

Production issues were also cited when Ocean previously pulled out of his sets at two US festivals, Sasquatch! and Hangout. His next scheduled performance is at the Northside festival in Denmark, which takes place from 9-11 Jun.

Back in Barcelona, Primavera has announced that Jamie xx will now be doing a solo set as part of its Friday programme, which essentially replaces Ocean. The xx are already playing the festival.
