East Riding Rock Festival 2010 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."

Bands that were scheduled to appear at the festival included Hecate Enthroned, The Prophecy, Divine Sinn, Clown Corpse, Blaze Bayley, and others.
