Celebrated Aussie crooner Chet Faker has been forced to pull out of WA's inaugural Disconnect music festival this weekend are succumbing to a serious foot injury. 

The 27-year-old artist has had a number of operations in recent times after damaging his foot, however he now has large holes in the bone which means he will be out of action for two months. 

If Faker was to perform at the festival, he would be risking serious damage as any pressure on his foot could shatter the bones even further. 

In a prepared statement, Faker said of the cancellation, "Disappointed that I can’t make it out to my Perth family next week, for Disconnect Festival."
