Hevy Fest 2016 Has Been Canceled

(TeamRock Radio) Hevy Fest organizers have confirmed that this year's event has been cancelled. They say they bowed to pressure amid rising costs, difficulty in finding a new location and the challenge of booking exclusive acts each year. It's also been announced that the event has now been put to rest "indefinitely."

The organizers had this to say: "After six years of incredible bands, legendary hangs, and a lot of monkeys - we're sorry to announce that Hevy Fest is pulling the plug.

"Many things have contributed: Port Lympne being unable to continue hosting the event, the increasingly difficult task of putting together a lineup with more and more exclusives enforced each year, and the pressure to offer good value with spiraling costs.

"The odds are stacked against anyone taking on the challenge, and they have proven too great for us to overcome." Read more here.
