U.K. Sonisphere Cancelled For Second Straight Year


Why is that?

So many other festivals thrive in the United Kingdom. Why can’t the Sonisphere folks get their shit together, man.

It has been announced that, for a second straight year, the Sonisphere will not be coming to the U.K.

“The three Sonisphere festivals to date at Knebworth in 2009/2010/2011 set a very high standard and indeed 2011 was voted the best festival line up by the UK Festival Awards,” says a statement from the Sonisfolks.

“We think it is really important that the event only runs when it has a lineup that sets it apart from the competition whilst also carrying a ticket price that allows us to offer real value for money to the music fans. We were hoping to do that in 2013 but unfortunately it wasn’t possible to fulfill both aims with the principle problem of there being a lack of available headliners of the calibre of previous festivals at Knebworthm,” the statement adds.

“We made offers to over a dozen major artists but for various reasons none of these offers lead to securing a strong bill. The good news is that the Sonispheres in Amneville, France and Milan, Italy are already on sale and UK fans who fancy jumping on a budget airline and seeing the mighty Iron Maiden at Sonisphere festivals in sunnier climates can buy tickets via SonisphereFestivals.com in pounds sterling.”

Whatever dude. This is sonisfucked up.
