Hevy Fest have announced the cancellation of its 2016 festival and has put the event to rest indefinitely.
“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.
Despite the best efforts of our dedicated team, the festival has become financially untenable. 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 leading to difficulties confirming our final headliner, 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.
