Fisher, a major headliner at this year’s Parklife festival, has pulled out of the event with just one week to go.

Fisher announced this afternoon that he was facing ‘times of uncertainty’, along with his wife Chloe, relating to the health of his unborn child.

The Australian DJ and producer has been advised to ‘stay close to home’ with his family and so has pulled out of all upcoming shows.

He was due to debut a European exclusive performance of Under Construction, with Chris Lake, which first appeared at Coachella in 2023.

Along with Doja Cat, Disclosure, and Becky Hill, Fisher was one of the biggest names on the bill for this year’s Parklife.


In a statement shared by the festival today, Fisher wrote: “I wanted to share an update about my upcoming show at Parklife.

“Chloe’s due date isn’t until later in June so I had all intention on making Parklife (and all the other shows I’ve had to miss). However this little unborn human has had other plans.


“We’ve had a few minor hiccups the past few weeks and our Dr has recommended I stay close to home and be with Chloe during these times of uncertainty.”

Parklife then added: “We wish Fisher and his family all the best at this time and look forward to welcoming him back to the festival in the very near future.

“Further details on programming updates will follow in the coming days.”


Fisher and his wife Chloe announced they were expecting their first child last Christmas, after four years of trying for their much-wanted baby.

She had written: “Although this post is the single most happiest moment in my life, I know how incredibly hard announcements like these are for those struggling with infertility. After 4 years of trying to convince, 1000’s of needles, 8 rounds of IVF, multiple surgeries, I’ve lived this nightmare & I know this pain and suffering all too well, NO ONE deserves to endure this feeling.

“I feel you all, I see you all & completely understand the disappointment & sadness you are all feeling. Please stay positive & manifest your healthy baby… I pray you hold your miracle in your arms soon. My heart is with you.”

This comes less than 24 hours after UK drill artist Digga D was also removed from the lineup due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’.
