Sonisphere festival organisers have announced that this year’s event has been cancelled.
In a statement revealing the news festival bosses said that they had been unable to sign up a bill that they believed was “good enough.”
The announcement came just before the weekend via the Sonisphere website, with the full statement reading:
“Team Sonisphere reluctantly confirm that Sonisphere will not take place in the UK in 2015. We’ve been working hard to get a lineup that we felt was good enough, but also on a weekend which would avoid other events that we know rock fans would want to support.
“Unfortunately our last irons in the fire have just been extinguished and it’s clear that we won’t be in a position to run the event this year. We’ve said in the past that Sonisphere will only go ahead if we feel it is going to be good enough and that hasn’t changed.
“We hope all rock fans have a great summer with all the festivals and concerts already in the calendar and we plan to see you all in 2016.”
Last year’s event saw headline sets from The Prodigy, Iron Maiden and Metallica.
