Fatboy Slim Pulls Out Of Snowbombing Festival On Doctor's Orders

March 27, 2009
Fatboy Slim Pulls Out Of Snowbombing Festival On Doctor's OrdersFatboy Slim has cancelled his appearance at next week's Snowbombing festival in Austria on the advice of doctors.

The DJ, who entered rehab earlier this month to overcome a problem with alcohol, was due to headline the event.

In a statement, his management company said the DJ was “very upset” but added that “his treatment is taking a little longer than he'd hoped for”.

The DJ said: "I'm choked to be missing out on the gig in the mountain forest, but I really hope Snowbombing will have me back for another crack at it next year.

"Sorry to let you down folks."

Fatboy Slim's position on the line up has been taken by 2manydjs.

The festival, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, will take place in the Austrian town of Mayrhofen from March 29th-April 4th.
