This year’s Hellfest, which was to be held this weekend in New Jersey has been abruptly cancelled! Here is a brief explaination posted on the Hellfest website:
“Due to circumstances beyond our control, Hellfest has been cancelled. After a full day in court in Burlington County, NJ, Hellfest was unable to meet unreasonable demands brought to Hellfest‘s attention by the Sovereign Bank Arena on August 16, 2005 at 6:21 PM, and to be met by August 17, 2005 at 7:00 AM. Actions were taken and Hellfest had an injunction filed by noon on August 17, 2005, but was overruled by the judge.
“We send our deepest apologies out to the fans and everyone who was involved with the event and want you to be aware that legal action is being taken.”
Those who purchased tickets for the event can find out more information regarding refunds on the official Hellfest website.
