2013 ‘Sound And Fury Festival’ Cancelled

This years planned ‘Sound & Fury Festival‘ has officially been cancelled. The festival was originally slated to take place In July in Santa Barbara, CA. According to the festival’s organizers:

“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 pro’s and con’s 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.”

    Oh no! Now no one can listen to a bunch of bands no one has ever heard of!

      No one has heard of Bane, Hundredth, Rotting Out, or
      The Ghost Inside? Seemed like a decent little festival to me, but the lineup seems to be almost a carbon copy of last years except for H2O and Touche Amore.

    Yeah, I’ve never heard of Strife and all of their stellar riffs causing destruction all while tuned to E or just maybe dropped D. Who are those guys?
