There’s been a little bit of lineup adjusting for some of the major rock festivals taking place in the coming months. The big news is that Motorhead and Skindred will both be missing out on some of their scheduled appearances at several of the ‘World’s Loudest Month’ festivals.

Each of the festivals affected have issued their own statements regarding the departures and potential replacements. Both Motorhead and Skindred were scheduled to be part of the Rock on the Range Festival in Columbus, Ohio, but will now bow out. However, festival organizers did reveal in their posting that Lacuna Coil and Living Colour have been added to the bill to fill the void. The music weekend takes place May 16-18.

Carolina Rebellion, which runs May 3 and 4, will be without Motorhead as part of their bill. Organizers state that they are currently working to book a replacement. Rocklahoma, which is taking place the weekend of May 23-25, are also looking to book replacements after the exits of Motorhead and Skindred.

And finally, the Welcome to Rockville festival, which takes place April 26 and 27 in Jacksonville, Fla., has revealed that Florida natives A Day to Remember have been added to the bill as Motorhead exits.

Each of the sites listed “circumstances beyond our control” in their statements about the two bands being unable to perform and neither group has made an official announcement as to why they were unable to make the shows.
