It appears the Brutal Fest has been cancelled, with several bands posting messages online stating the event is cancelled and they weren't ever paid. A sampling of posts can be seen below.

Dawn of Demise: "Brutal Fest has been cancelled. The promoter is a lying bastard cuntfuck idiot loser who has stolen peoples money and so on. Aborted and Aeon have also cancelled, and if you look at their updates you can see that they also are pretty pissed..."

Aborted: "Due to the unprofessional and fraudulent acts of the promoter of brutal fest. Aborted officially cancel our appearance at this event. We hope the promoter gets what he deserves and everyone who bought tickets get their money back. See you all in Aarschot with Exhumed and Origin this November instead!"

Aeon: "Due to an unprofessional and fraudulent act of the promotor AeoN is canceling the show at Brutal Fest in Hasselt. We really hope that everyone who has bought a ticket will get the money back. See you all on the Cannibal Corpse tour."

The festival's official Facebook profile was recently updated with the following message:

"Dear [eople, as you have heard recently Brutal Fest 2014 will be cancelled.

"I can't continue any longer with this event due medical reasons and that's probably the main reason for the cancellation.

"There are a lot of speculations / gossip / lies said the last days in the social media but also in the newspapers. It doesn't mean that something is written in a newspaper that it is automatically true.

"Tickets: We received some messages about tickets that where never arrived. People who bought a ticket normally received a mail with more information about a cash back.

"We (I am) (are) sincerely sorry for the mistakes that were made. People with questions can send a mail to:brutalfestzonhoven@hotmail.be."
