“Whilst we are disappointed at this news, and have ADDED FOUR extra incredible acts to replace them for the Bank Holiday Sunday, all in keeping with the programming and style of Metropolis Festival. For those of you who bought Sunday tickets especially to see TLC, you can get a full refund from Ticketmaster, but let us tell you about the acts we’ve got coming first…”

The festival has announced that well-known names such as Todd Terje and DJ Jazzy Jeff are among four new acts drafted in to replace TLC. Mixmag tipped DJ Denis Sulta from Glasgow and Aussie DJ MALL GRAB, who has played numerous shows in Berlin and Paris (including a Boiler Room show) all join the Sunday line-up with Richie Hawtin, Jungle, Adam Beyer, Mount Kimbie and more.
