Sonisphere has today confirmed that the UK festival will not take place in 2015.
The British leg of the European festival released a statement citing clashes with other rock-based events and a lack of bands which promoters ‘felt were good enough’. See the full statement below.
“TeamSonisphere 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.”
