Sabrina Claudio and Novo Amor gave different reasons for backing from this year's music fest.
According to the statement released by Wanderland, Sabrina could not perform "due to schedule/routing conflicts."
In her Instagram stories, Sabrina wrote a message that goes: "Asia, so sad to have to cancel my trip. Some of my best performances & memories stem from my visits to various parts in Asia last year so I'm so bummed out.
"I love you, take care, and I will see you in due time."
Meanwhile, Novo admitted that the coronavirus outbreak led to the cancellation of his performance.
His official statement goes: "I'm very sorry to announce that in light of recent events, I've had to postpone my shows in China, which means I'm no longer able to travel to the region and perform at Wanderland Music & Arts Festival in Manila."
Wanderland, however, will soon announce the new acts that will join this year's lineup.
