Last Two Days Of Underwall Festival Cancelled

Several bands, including Amaranthe and Enslaved, have posted online about having to pull out of the Croatian Underwall Festival, and now the remaining days of the metal fest have officially been cancelled altogether. U.K. band Absolva posted this announcement online about the situation:

"We regret to say that the remaining 2 days of Underwall Festival have been cancelled by the promoter.

"Many of the bands had already pulled out due to various logistical difficulties, including Amaranthe, Rage, Enslaved. We've been here since yesterday so we guess it's time to soak up the sun, relax with a few beers until Monday when we fly home.

"We apologize to everyone expecting to see us at the festival but there simply isn't an event left to play! Thanks to all. We now look forward to headlining Day One of SOS FESTIVAL back home in ENGLAND.. I AM I headline day 2. The event is packed full of quality metal.... Savage Messsiah, Tysondog, Triaxis, Monument, Incassum, & many more. TICKETS ONLY £15 for the weekend!"

Organizer Stjepan Juras is the one and only to blame. He knew months ahead that the ticket sale isn't going very well, and instead of cancelling the event in time, he still went on with his megalomaniac plan, resulting in this catastrophe.

He lied to the bands, ensured everything was taken care of until the last day when numerous bands (i.e. Enslaved) found out that he never confirmed their plane tickets. Others found that they had nothing to eat, and nowhere to sleep.

Here is what Benediction had to say:


Please spread the information about this guy and his outrageous incompetence. You may think that there is no way he's ever going to organize another event, but he has done this exact same thing nine years ago with Metal Melting Summit festival, and somehow people still trusted him nowadays. Hopefully this is the last nail in the coffin for this idiot.
