Last summer, blink-182 were set to play Bunbury Music Festival 2018. However, the band were forced to cancel “due to unseen circumstances” a few days before their Friday slot.

At the time, the band and Bunbury both confirmed blink would be returning in 2019 for a rescheduled performance, but it looks like that has changed.

In May 2018, Bunbury reposted blink’s statement with the caption:

“Hey Bunbarians, Due to unfortunate circumstances Blink-182 will not be able to join us this Friday, but in good news, they’ll be joining us for Bunbury 2019!”

Today, blink shared an update on playing the festival. In it, they state they will no longer be able to make the festival due to being “hard at work in the studio on [their] next album.”
