Sound and Fury Festival Canceled

The organizers of the Sound and Fury Festival in Santa Barbara, California has broken the bad news to fans that they have been forced to cancel this year's festival.

The festival was scheduled to take place July 26, 27, and 28 at the Earl Warren Showgrounds. The organizers issued the following explanation the cancelation:

"It's over. We are sorry to bring you this unfortunate news but the 2013 edition of the Sound and Fury Festival is cancelled. We apologize to everyone from the bottom of our hearts for having to do this, but it was unavoidable.

"In order to quell speculation, you will hear the absolute truth from us. Due to unforeseen circumstances and the massive financial risk it takes to run a festival, we have to cancel this year.

"We are just two people, running a festival that brings in over 60 bands and 1,800 kids to Santa Barbara every year. The amount of logistics and headaches this encompasses one can only imagine, needless to say from March to July our lives don't feel our own.

"This year, we put together what we thought was an amazing lineup with amazing sponsors that all spread the word of the festival far and wide. We as organizers have to weigh the pros and cons of doing a festival and not losing tens of thousands of dollars in the process.

"Plain and simple, we couldn't take that risk this year.

"To all of the bands, sponsors, friends, co-workers and attendees, we are very sorry.

"Tickets will be fully refunded at the point of purchase (No Sleep Records) and should be completed by weeks end. If you bought a ticket, you will get your refund but be patient as we are sorting out the best way to get that to you."
