Australia's recently announced Rock Out Festival has been postponed until later this year. Here's the update from the organizers:

“MTD4 and Blade Promotions after consultation with the venues and major stakeholders including the International Artists, have decided that it is in the best interest of all parties concerned to postpone the event to Sept/Oct this year.

"The new dates will be advised as soon as possible.

"We anticipate announcing additional headline bands to join those previously listed as the postponement allows us to restore the event to our original concept including multiple stages, all ages ticketing and camping at all sites.

"We apologise if this postponement causes any inconvenience to those that have already purchased tickets to our event and encourage them to contact us directly - contact@rockoutfestivals.com.au"

The original festival dates that have been postponed are:

I'm amazed that this was scheduled and yet all my metal friends and I haven't heard a thing about it - are these guys doing any marketing at all? I have 4 friends plus myself who would've flown over for this! Get your act together people, Perth has a thriving metal scene - surely you can find a way to be heard?
