Reading and Leeds Festival organisers have been left scrambling following the news  that both Jack Harlow and Måneskin have cancelled their appearances at next week's festivities. 

American rapper Jack, 24, and the Italian rock band both pulled out of the annual event to instead appear at the MTV Video Music Awards in New Jersey, leaving festival bosses 'saddened by the decision'. 

And while Måneskin made the announcement earlier this month, it wasn't until Monday evening that Jack confirmed he would not be performing at Sunday's gig.

Both acts were due to take to the stage alongside Megan The Stallion, The Artic Monkeys, The 1975 and Wolf Alice, leaving organisers struggling to find a last minute replacement.

In a statement the Leeds and Reading Festival said: 'We are saddened to hear that Jack Harlow and Måneskin have decided to perform at an award show the same weekend they were confirmed to play Reading and Leeds'.

They added: 'We are working on some exciting replacements to join Arctic Monkeys, Dave, Bring Me The Horizon, The 1975, Halsey, Megan Thee Stallion, D-Block Europe, PinkPantheress, Joy Crookes, Fontaines DC, Bastille, Willow, Wolf Alice, Glass Animals, Hybrid Minds and many others at Reading & Leeds Festivals this August Bank Holiday weekend, watch this space!'.
