Ian Brown Pulls Out of Festival Due to Vaccination Rule

Ian Brown recently announced that he has withdrawn from a festival, on account of the fact that he refuses to present proof of vaccination as a condition for entry. 

The former frontman of the Stone Roses was supposed to be headlining the upcoming festival of Neighborhood Weekender. The event was going to be held in his hometown of Warrington, England, on the first weekend of the month of September. 

The month initially decided for the three-day festival had been other than September. However, Brown has completely withdrawn from the event. He claims that it is unfair that all attendees will be required to provide absolute proof of their vaccination against the coronavirus, as a condition of entry. 

On Wednesday, Brown took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to inform his fans that he will no longer be one of the headliners at the festival. He stated that the Saturday night headline show of his, at the NHBD Weekender festival, has been cancelled. According to the star, he refused to accept proof of vaccination as a condition of entry.

He went on to assure his fans to not panic and avail refunds as soon as possible.

Organizers in charge of putting together the Neighborhood Weekender festival also issued an official statement on Twitter. They asserted that they will make sure to comply with all the coronavirus guidelines as outlined by the government, through local authorities. They further clarified that these regulations will not be changed by the authorities before the 21st of June, at the earliest. 

Brown has previously been vocal about his skepticism regarding the coronavirus, the country-wide lockdown, as well as the vaccine. The organizers of the festival have replaced him with Sit Down rockers James. Amongst other headliners are Catfish and the Bottlemen, Gerry Cinnamon, Shed Seven, and Sam Fender.
