After facing multiple setbacks, the organisation of Hevy Fest has decided to throw in the towel.
Not only did this year's festival get cancelled; the event has been put to rest indefinitely.
You can read a statement below.
"Hevy Fest is no more.
After 6 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 line-up with more and more exclusives enforced each year, and the pressure to offer good value with spiralling costs. The odds are stacked against anyone taking on the challenge, and they have proven too great for us to overcome.
There is a great community of Hardcore, Punk and Metal supporters in the UK and we hope that other small festivals will be able to grow into this space, and to deliver the event we aspired to.
Ticket holders will be automatically refunded. All monies will be returned in the next 10 working days (including booking fees and postage).
As a small independent event, we want to thank everyone who has supported us over the years.
Hevy Fest // 2009 - 2015."
Hevy was supposed to take place on August 19 - 20 in Newhaven, Derbyshire.
