Rock And Metal Circus Cancelled
The Rock and Metal Circus, due to take place in September, has been cancelled today.
Wolf, Voodoo Six and Godsized were set to headline the three-day festival at the Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire. With a ticket price set at a meagre £32.50 and quite a few of the better known underground bands booked to play, it's a surprise to see this one go by the wayside.
In a simple post on Facebook, the organisers said:
"It is with the greatest and deepest regret that we have to inform you that this years RMC Festival is cancelled. We will be releasing a full statement later today. Please be assured that all ticket monies will be refunded in due course. Again we apologise."
Rumours started circulating yesterday, as bands were told of the announcement, so it's good to see that a statement was released early to stop assumptions being made.
Sad news, as we lose another small and independent festival, but looks like those on the established circuit are the only ones surviving in this very competitive space these days.
