July 2001
Iona and Cornerstone Festival Committee announced the cancellation of Iona's scheduled appearance at this year's festival on July 4th. Iona's singer, Joanne Hogg, is pregnant, and two Transatlantic flights and all stress involved in the trip, could place an unacceptable strain on her baby with potentially life-threatening consequences. The band took a unanimous decision to cancel their appearance, a decision fully understood and endorsed by the Cornerstone team. In view of the circumstances detailed above, Iona have also contacted Greenbelt Festival to inform them of the situation, canceling appearance at UK Festival.
