GBR, Perth - Ragnarok UK Metal Fest - CANCELLED


Band:



Location: United Kingdom, Perth (Concert Hall)
Date: 03-04 November 2006
Website: ragnarokfestival.com


It is with deep regret that Metalism UK has to announce the cancellation of the Ragnarok Festival and associated preshow, scheduled for 3/11/06 & 4/11/06 in Perth/Dundee, Scotland. It has not been an easy decision to reach, and one we are extremely disappointed to have to make, however due to the low volume of ticket sales, combined with the higher than expected operating costs, we are unable to proceed with the show.

Our sincerest apologies to everybody who has supported us since the announcement of the festival, to the bands, and especially to the people who have already purchased tickets.

Refunds are currently being arranged and should all be completed within the next two weeks..

Thank you for your understanding,

Metalism UK
 

Who was there?

No, don't tell us! Often enough bands could charge higher salaries coz the festival organizers failed to keep it secret until the contracts were all signed; once it trickled through people will have certain expectations and the bands know that the organizers don't want to disappoint their customers. And when the organizers have to pay more for the artists, they'll have to cut down elsewhere in order not to exceed their budget, or charge more for the tickets. So just keep it for yourself and let everyone have the surprise

I'd kill to see Circus Maximus. Still, why the hell doesn't the capital of ENGLAND get bands as big and good as this in a festival?! Practically none of those bands tour much this side (well, Astral Doors are supporting BG so that's an awesome band I'll see) and Scotland is too far and expensive for me to travel to. Meh, oh well, have fun all who go.
