Skepta & Sasha pull out of Coachella

Skepta and Sasha have become the latest casualties of this weekend's (16-17Apr16) Coachella festival in California.

DJ Sasha has been forced to scrap his appearance due to a personal medical emergency, while U.K. grime star Skepta confirmed fans fears he would be a no-show on Friday (15Apr16) when visa issues prevented him from getting to the event in Indio.


Sasha hopes to be able to perform at Coachella's second weekend (23-24Apr16), but Skepta's permit woes are expected to stretch beyond this month. Both his Coachella sets have been scrapped.


Visa problems have also forced reunited indie band Lush to pull the plug on their Saturday (16Apr16) slot at Coachella.


This year's festival began on Friday.
