WHEN the tents are about to up and the music lovers are getting ready to get on the road, news arrived this morning that European songstress Karen Marie Ørsted, better known as MØ, is not coming to Falls Festival 2017.

(NOTE: In case you were wondering, MØ is pronounced like 'mercy' without the 'cy', as it is Danish pronunciation. It is definitely not pronounced 'Mo'.)

A statement released by festival organisers confirmed the news.

"Sadly due to illness, MØ is unable to fly to Australia and perform at Falls Festival," the statement reads.

"Over Christmas she was struck with pneumonia and doctors orders are that she remain home to recover.

"She is upset to be missing the festival and performing for her followers; we wish her a speedy and full recovery."

So it looks like fans of hits such as Kamikaze and Final Song will have to wait for another occasion to listen to the Danish artist live in the Northern Rivers.
