U.K.’s Sonisphere Fucking Cancelled

Not happening

Fuck that noise!

I was actually maybe thinking I’d try to swing this one, because Faith No More were scheduled to play, after all. But now, the fucking thing’s been cancelled. Bullocks! Sandra me Bullocks!

The organizers of the U.K. version of the Sonisphere festival say the things been canceled. It was scheduled for July 6, 7 and 8 at Knebworth House in Hertfordshire. And it was going to be a bloody good time, too.

The news broke online last night when headliners Queen posted a message on their Web site saying their performance had been called off.

Blabbermouth claims Sonisphere was reportedly struggling to sell tickets for this year’s edition of the festival, despite being one of the U.K.’s few remaining true rock events.

“It is with very heavy hearts and much regret that we announce the cancellation of Sonisphere Knebworth 2012,” the organizers say in a statement.

“Putting the festival together in what is proving to be a very challenging year was more difficult than we anticipated and we have spent the last few months fighting hard to keep Sonisphere in the calendar. Unfortunately circumstances have dictated that we would be unable to run the festival to a standard that both the artists and that Sonisphere’s audience would rightly expect.

“We want to express our deepest regrets to the artists and to thank all the staff, suppliers and contractors who worked so hard with us to try and pull off what has proven to be an impossible task and we know how much they share in our disappointment. We also want to send a huge thanks to the Sonisphere fans who stuck by us and we are so sorry that we can’t fulfil what we set out to do.

“Ticket holders will automatically receive a full refund direct from their ticket agents.”

The fest was supposed to feature Refused, Faith No More, Marilyn Manson, Kiss, Gojira, Ghost, Kvelertak, Fields of the Nephilim, Mastodon, and GlassJaw.

This fucking sucks.
