Sonisphere organizers have announced that this year’s festival will be canceled due to band booking failures. This is the second time in four years that organizers have decided to cancel the event.
This year’s festival was expected to be held in Knebworth, England. According to Crave Online, the organizers felt they could not secure a “good enough” lineup. The Sonisphere organizers released the following updates on Facebook and Twitter about the festival:
“Team Sonisphere reluctantly confirm that Sonisphere will not take place in the UK in 2015. We’ve been working hard to get a line-up that we felt was good enough but also on a weekend which would avoid other events that we know rock fans would want to support. Unfortunately our last irons in the fire have just been extinguished and it’s clear that we won’t be in a position to run the event this year. We’ve said in the past that Sonisphere will only go ahead if we feel it is going to be good enough and that hasn’t changed.
We hope all rock fans have a great summer with all the festivals and concerts already in the calendar and we plan to see you all in 2016.”
