Blastfest 2017 Cancelled


Bergen, Norway’s Blastfest today announced the cancellation of the festival’s 2017 incarnation via Facebook. The Facebook post mentions that the company which managed the fest is to be dissolved. The post cites poor ticket sales as the cause for cancellation

Blastfest 2017 was to be headlined by The Devin Townsend Project, Katatonia and Phil Anselmo’s Scour. It would have been the first live performance by Scour. Notably, Katatonia was also slated to play their album The Great Cold Distance from front to back.

In October, the fest cancelled a  performance by Peste Noire, pursuant to pressures by antifascist organizers in France, according to Metal Insider. It’s unclear at this time if Peste Noire’s cancellation and low ticket sales are related.
