Has Alt-fest Been Cancelled?
Rumours are circulating on social networks today that Alt-fest has been cancelled.
The new three-day festival was scheduled to take place in Kettering from 15th to 17th August, with over 180 bands, including some heavy hitting acts like Marilyn Manson, Fields Of The Nephilim, The Cult and Arch Enemy.
It was positioned as the largest Alternative festival in the universe and promised to be far more than just tents in a field as, alongside the music, a full size circus, art, workshops and other 'immersive' experiences were planned.
Although there isn't an official announcement from the organisers, several members of bands and their management have confirmed they've been told of the cancellation this afternoon.
