The ‘Blonde’ singer has cancelled two upcoming headline slots due to "production issues”.
Frank Ocean has cancelled a headline festival slot for the second time this month.
According to his representatives, the 'Blonde' hitmaker has pulled out of Hangout festival in Alabama due to "production delays beyond his control".
The festival announced on their official Twitter page that French band Phoenix would be replacing Ocean 19th May.

The news comes just days after the R&B singer cancelled his forthcoming appearance at Washington's Sasquatch! Festival, citing the same reason as above.
LCD Soundsystem are now scheduled to fill Ocean's place on 26th May.
Following the news, fans took to social media to express their dismay.
