Sonisphere officially cancel this years Festival at Knebworth

Thu, 29 March 2012

In a statement this morning at 9am, Sonisphere Festival organisers KiliLive confirmed the rumours that had circulated online through out Wednesday, this years visit to Knebworth is cancelled.

The official statement from Sonisphere reads:
"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."

At present all previously announced European Sonisphere Festival dates will go ahead, visit www.sonisphere.co.uk for more details.
