According to unconfirmed reports, yesterday's (July 5) first day of Athens Open Air festival in Athens, Greece was a near-disaster, as only four out of the six scheduled bands performed (there was no official word on what happened to DIMMU BORGIR, one of the two acts that failed to play at the event). In addition, there was a three-hour delay and tons of sand and remarkably "poor" stage lights and sound at the festival site (Aloimos beach). The second day of the festival, which was supposed to take place today (with scheduled performers including IN FLAMES, ANTHRAX, CHILDREN OF BODOM, PAIN OF SALVATION, KATATONIA and BATTLEROAR), is unofficially said to have been cancelled. No further information is currently available.
