Info update: the organizers are currently considering cancellation due to bad financial situation combined with low interest...it is not definitive, but it will probably ends so...

well...at least they honestly admit it, not trying to tricking us...

Bad news about a great festival. Haven't been there yet, but their band selections have always been beyond awesome, especially for that price.

"always"? there was just one Black Light fest so far...arent you confusing it with Brutal Assault?

which btw is the main cause of BL being in troubles - we are simply too small country for 2 big "extreme metal" open airs during season...plus there is Masters of Rock closely after BL and newly this year there will be also some new fest near Pilsen in may...though we are "metal nation" and metal gigs here are usually sold out or nearly sold out, 4 fests is too much for people here...and if someone has to choose and decide, MOR and BA offers greater opinions for most of the folk...and foreign audience cannot save it


edit: also there will be huge "pagan fest" Northern Lights in northern Austria, just few kilometers from our borders headlined by Arkona...i think Black Lights dont stand a chance this year

There was only one?? Oh well, then they had a great lineup in that year
Black Lights always seemed to be more of a black metal festival to me and caters to a completely different audience than Masters of Rock or Metalfest, so I don't see how those two festivals are that much of a threat. I do agree with Brutal Assault and Northern Lights to be dangerous for BL though. Especially Northern Lights which also features many underground black metal bands (Nargaroth, Heimdalls Wacht, Todtgelichter) is bound to snatch visitors away from BL.
