In a series of Tweets, festival manager AJ Maddah announced the festival canceled due to low ticket sales. Acrimony has already kicked up about who is responsible for refunds, with the ticket agency and the promoter in a public war of words. Fans have taken to social media to express their dismay, although the festival’s website has yet to be updated. Had it taken place Disturbed, Bring Me The Horizon, The Prodigy, Deftones, Bullet For My Valentine, NOFX, Refused, Hatebreed, L7 and others were scheduled to perform. This was to be the last year of the fest so with the latest events, it would seem the festival, once one of the best live music events in the world is over.
