Crowdfunded ‘Legion Music Fest’ Cancelled


0

The first-ever ‘Legion Music Fest‘ has been cancelled. The crowdfunded festival was meant to fill a void in the Australian market after the annual ‘Soundwave Festival‘ and ‘Big Day Out‘ were both put to rest in recent years. $363,985 AUD was raised for the festival, which was to take place in January in the cities of Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane. Among the acts intended for the festival were:

Lordi
DevilDriver
Devil You Know
Darkest Hour
Front Line Assembly
Battlecross
Capture The Crown
Dream, On, Dreamer
Aversions Crown
Heard Of Cows?
28 Days
Caligula’s Horse
Polaris
Darkc3ll
Rick Dangerous & The Silkie Bantams

Ex-Devil You Know drummer John Sankey was among the founders of the event and even left the band to devote his attention to the festival. Organizers have since provided the following statement on the cancellation:

Legion Music Fest Announcement

The organizers wish to thank all Aussie metal fans for their continued support of the Legion project over the last 10 months.
Due to a number of business considerations, we have made the decision to not proceed with the proposed launch of Legion Music Fest in January 2017.

*Edit* Please note – no transactions have been processed at all and no fans are out of pocket.

Thanks
