A volcano in Iceland is playing havoc with a music festival more than 4,000 miles away.
As CNN's Denise Quan reported this morning, several UK bands are scrambling to make it to the Coachella music festival in Indio, California - but thanks to the eruption of a volcano in Iceland, air traffic has been grounded in parts of Europe. That's meant that some bands aren't going to make their scheduled slots.
Among those that have canceled: the Cribs (recently joined by Johnny Marr), Frightened Rabbit and now Bad Lieutenant.
"Bad Lieutenant will not be able to play Coachella tomorrow," a spokesperson for the band told CNN. "They are stuck in the UK and unable to get a flight out. Everyone is very bummed about it."
Among the acts who are playing the three-day festival - which begins today - are Jay-Z, Vampire Weekend, Gorillaz (a UK act already in the States), Pavement, Devo and Julian Casablancas.
