One Major Act Might Have Just Pulled Out of this Iowa Music Festival
It looks like the Hinterland Music Festival lineup is changing up a bit this year.
Hinterland Music Festival is a weekend long festival that takes places at the Avenue of the Saints Amphitheater in St. Charles. Ever since 2015, the team behind the event has been bringing in big names in the indie rock, pop, and country world.
This summer Bon Iver, Zach Bryan, and Maggie Rogers are set to headline the festival taking place August 4th through the 6th.
Some other big names that were slated to perform include Noah Kahan, Sylvan Esso, and Orville Peck.
Peck has quickly become an interesting figure in modern pop culture and indie country music. The masked musician is openly gay and has toured with the likes of country greats like Willie Nelson.
This masked cowboy was set to perform on Saturday, August 5th in Iowa. However, it looks like things have changed.
The star released a statement to social media saying he would be postponing all of his upcoming summer shows and that will be effective immediately.
"This was one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make, but I've come to realize that my current mental and physical health won't allow me to bring you my best," the singer shared in his statement.
"...I have to take this time to replenish my mind and body so that I can come back stronger and healthier than before, in order to do what I love for many years to come."
This means that he will not be making appearances at any festivals he was slated to attend which includes Hinterland. According to his website, his summer 2023 shows are no longer going on. The next show on the singer's site is scheduled for April of 2024.
There is no word on a replacement for Peck at the Iowa festival. His image is still included on the event website at the moment. In addition, his name is still on the list of performers on the Facebook event page.
Could there be a possibility that the star will be up and ready by August?
We have reached out to Hinterland for comment, but have not heard back. We will keep you updated as this story progresses.
