Art vs Science to replace Ting Tings

Art vs Science has replaced the Ting Tings at this year’s Splendour In the Grass festival.

The UK outfit withdrew from the Aussie music event last week over scheduling conflicts.

“Due to the rescheduling of the next Tings Tings album to later in 2010 the band sadly have decided to delay their Australian tour and this of course means they will not be able to play Splendour in 2010,” a statement from the band said.

The band’s Spendour withdrawal also means their solo club dates have been cancelled.

Meanwhile, Sally Seltmann has replaced The Middle East after they pulled the plug on their festival appearance.

“The Middle East is disappointed to announce that they are no longer able to perform at the 2010 event,” a band statement said.

“Due to an extended recording schedule The Middle East will be withdrawing from the Splendour In The Grass line up to complete their debut album. The band apologises for any inconvenience caused.”
