Knebworth Sonisphere Festival Is Cancelled – Read Official Statement Here

Knebworth Sonisphere announced the truth about the rumours as they post an official statement on their website this morning. Read it here..

Very sad news this morning when the bosses over at Sonisphere Festival in Knebworth announced that the rumours were true and the festival has been cancelled for this year.

The speculation on twitter from around midday yesterday lead to former Saturday headliners Queen to announce the festival cancellation. As festival tickets went off sale on all official ticketing websites the rumours were almost confirmed. An official statement has been posted on the festival website today.

Read the official statement here below..

It is with very heavy hearts and much regret that we announce the cancellation of Sonisphere Knebworth 2012.
Putting the festival together in what is proving to be a very challenging year was more difficult than we anticipated and we have spent the last few months fighting hard to keep Sonisphere in the calendar. Unfortunately circumstances have dictated that we would be unable to run the festival to a standard that both the artists and that Sonisphere’s audience would rightly expect.

We want to express our deepest regrets to the artists and to thank all the staff, suppliers and contractors who worked so hard with us to try and pull off what has proven to be an impossible task and we know how much they share in our disappointment. We also want to send a huge thanks to the Sonisphere fans who stuck by us and we are so sorry that we can’t fulfil what we set out to do.

Ticket holders will automatically receive a full refund direct from their ticket agents.

Team Sonisphere.

Very sad news for all the bands, organisers and staff involved. HTF loved last years festival and hope that next year it comes back bigger than ever.
