Faceplant Metalfest Cancelled!on Jun 28 in News
We’re afraid that we have bad news for you all. The show at Faceplant Metalfest have been cancelled. Again, this is due to circumstances beyond our grasp. The festival have issued the following:
It is with very heavy hearts that we announce that Faceplant Metalfest 2012 unfortunately has to be cancelled.
We have had a massive and fantastic response these last few months, both from you – our awesome fans and collaborators – as well as from the Swedish press, which has regularly posted updates on the festival. But, unfortunately, a festival cannot be run on enthusiasm alone. Despite us having sold as many tickets as we have, we are still so far from break-even that we have had to pull the plug now, 4 weeks before the event.
Right now we have reached a crisis-point as we have a number of bills that need to be paid right away for this festival to be able to happen – and those funds have unfortunately not been accumulated yet. We know that SO many of you have been very excited for this festival – and believe us, WE WERE TOO. Everyone we spoke to told us that this was a great initiative with great prospects, so we had our hopes high and expected a killer festival. But unless someone with a lot of money believes in this project so much that they want to help us fund it before the end of June – this is where it ends.
We have worked our asses off for a whole year, trying to make this dream a reality. But without enough ticket-sales, no event is possible. We have done everything possible within our reach to try and make this festival happen, but this is now out of our control.
Making this decision today was without a doubt the most difficult part of this journey, we hope that you understand this. Any questions you have can be sent to our chairman, Jacob () who will do his best to answer them.
The Faceplant Crew”
Again, we in the Engel camp are very sorry for this.
