Rockers Tame Impala cancelled a festival appearance in Germany over the weekend (21-23Jun13) because their equipment was late arriving at the venue.

The Australian band was due to play at the Hurricane Festival, but they were forced to axe their slot because their gear did not make it to the site in time.

A post on the group's page reads, "We're so sorry people of Hurricane Festival. We had to cancel because our equipment took too long to get to Germany from America... it arrived about 3 hours after we were meant to play so we would have just been standing on stage holding mic leads.

"Mega f**k up but sometimes this stuff just happens when you're sending drum kits in aeroplanes in every direction across the world... it must have sucked waiting at the front barrier and hearing the news. We'll make it up to you! Maybe you could get to one of our other Germany shows?"
