Download Germany Announces Festival Cancellation

The German edition of the Download festival that was to take place on June 23rd and 24th will no longer take place, this was announced in a statement made by the festival organizers.

The statement reads as follows:

"Download Germany will not take place this year. With great regret, the organization announces the cancellation of the festival. Ticketmaster will automatically refund all tickets purchased in advance in the coming days. Fans will receive information by mail. The staff has worked until the last minute to make the event a reality, but despite the top-notch line-up, the sheer number of large outdoor events scheduled for this summer has made things very difficult from an organizational point of view. The technical and production problems proved insurmountable."

Slipknot, Volbeat and Parkway Drive would haved headline the festival, and it would have also featured appearances by bands such as Amon Amarth, Disturbed, Kreator, among others.
