Sonisphere Cancellation Causes Misery for Irish Metal fans.

Dwindling ticket sales. rising costs of booking performers and the fact the Olympics this year taking up the amenities have caused many of this years Music Festivals to cancel this year. A horrible fact at face value as the Metal Festivals in Europe specifically The United Kingdom are some of the most prestigious and massive festivals in the world but the cancellation stops bands that never get to tour in countries around the UK, like Ireland, from playing shows here.

In the last two weeks Gojira, Mastodon and Katatonia have cancelled shows in Ireland purely because the cost of bringing the equipment from their native countries is so expensive compared to how much they make from coming here. The festivals give them more reason to tour the entire United Kingdom and Ireland, but as they’re not happening this year… they wont be coming here.

Personally I’m devastated as Gojira and Katatonia are two of my favorite groups… Voice your disgust in the comments below!
