We have today been informed by the event organisers that the Castle Park Rock Festival has been cancelled. We as a band would like to apologise to any of our fans who have already bought tickets but this situation is totally out of our control.
A spokesperson for Castle Rock said:
"With great sadness we must inform everyone that a very difficult decision has been made to cancel Castle Park Rock for 2009.
This year’s festival faced a major hiccup earlier in the year which delayed getting details of the festival out to the public. This when added to the current economic situation has forced our hands to pull what we believe (and what many have told us) to be an absolutely superb festival line-up. Terrorvision / Gun / It Bites / FM on one bill would have been superb! All fantastic UK bands!
We can only apologise to all the fans, we are genuinely as disappointed as you are.
Anyone who has purchased tickets to the event will be refunded in full, (tickets ordered via ‘Townsend’ have not been charged/debited).
We thank each & every one of you for the continued support for Castle Park Rock.
We continue to look at plans for later in the year and also towards 2010."
