The organizers of the Blastfest have checked in with the following announcement about final band confirmations:

"The lineup announcements had to come to an end eventually and Blastfest has now revealed the final three bands for the main lineup. But that’s not to say what you see on the burgeoning Blastfest poster is all that’s happening. No, no, no, there will be more!

"There’s already a lineup that would bring tears to the eyes of even the toughest metalhead with bands such as Demilich, Satyricon, Decapitated, Paradise Lost, At The Gates & Moonsorrow... and just last week a cruise up the Norwegian fjords with live bands was announced as part of the first days festivities. We still have to hear more… the clinics, the stand up comedy, the exhibitions, and lots more have yet to be revealed!

"For now, let’s leave this here… Sweden’s Uppsala upstarts, the black metal powerhouse, the entity of its own who released possibly their best work to date just last year with ‘The Hunt’, yes, the mighty Watain have been announced as another Blastfest 2015 headliner. The festival has also welcomed Austria’s sickest death metal export Schrinec Plays Pungent Stench and Bergens blackened deaththrash horde Grimfist." More...

East Riding Rock Festival Canceled

The organizers of the East Riding Rock 2010 festival, which was scheduled to take place from July 16th - 18th, have issued the following update about canceling the festival:

"It is with great regret that we have to announce that the 2010 East Riding rock festival has been canceled, we were going to put a statement up this weekend once we had ensured all the bands had heard, but as usual someone got wind on Facebook and quite frankly couldn't hold their own piss and blabbed it everywhere. The reasons behind this are spiraling costs and poor pre-festival ticket sales, we can't even cover our pre-festival overheads ( some of which we will still have to pay from our own pockets).

"Anyone who has bought a ticket will receive a full refund! It will take us a few weeks to sort this out so please be patient but rest assured no one will be ripped off. Any band who hasn't had a personal email yet they are on the way this is a hasty blog to stay any rumors that a flying around. there will be a longer full statement in due course. Once again we are sorry that it has come to this but financially the festival was unavailable." More...
