"We are however, sorry to say she will not be able to perform with us this Saturday.

"Quiches Lorraine and Soroya Marchelle are also unable to perform on Saturday due to reasons outside our control. Sum Ting Wong will now be performing on the Cabaret Stage."

A day of music and entertainment will then be held on the Downs, with singer Carly Rae Jepsen set to headline.
