The rumour is that is has been cancelled due to poor presales, according to the organizers that is because of the lack of any really big names. hahhaha As if. It is due to the poor organisation and ridiculously high drink and food prices more probably.

First of all, it is obvious a very bad weekend to compete with other festivals (like Hellfest).
Secondly, face it, we're spoiled with touring here. Among the confirmed bands were Judas Priest, Sex Pistols, Cavalera Conspiracy, Dimmu Borgir, Ministry, Motörhead, Chris Cornell, Disturbed, Iced Earth, Rise Against, Arch Enemy, Bring Me The Horizon. Those bands are maybe big bands, relatively speaking, but it's not the first time they tour here. Except for Sex Pistols (and Cavalera Conspiracy, but they are a new band, so that doesn't really count), these bands are touring a lot (fe. 3rd time Dimmu in less than a year in these areas) and appear on metal festivals almost every year, or at least every two years (Iced Earth, Motörhead, Judas Priest, Arch Enemy). Because of the fact a lot of people have already seen those bands, the bands evidently lose their charm and power to be the headliner over and over again... Face it, those bands are far from being the crowd pullers they once were...
Your favorite band sucks.
