Sonisphere Festival has been cancelled for 2015, as has been announced by Team Sonisphere via their website, where they issued the following statement:
“Team Sonisphere reluctantly confirm that Sonisphere will not take place in the UK in 2015. We’ve been working hard to get a line-up that we felt was good enough but also on a weekend which would avoid other events that we know rock fans would want to support. Unfortunately our last irons in the fire have just been extinguished and it’s clear that we won’t be in a position to run the event this year. We’ve said in the past that Sonisphere will only go ahead if we feel it is going to be good enough and that hasn’t changed.
We hope all rock fans have a great summer with all the festivals and concerts already in the calendar and we plan to see you all in 2016.”
This is the third time the festival, held at Knebworth House, has been cancelled – it was announced in 2012 that the festival would not be taking place that year and it failed to return again in 2013.
Anyone who was planning on going to Sonisphere this year disappointed? Which festival will you be going to instead? Leave your comments below.
