Castle Fest canceled

Symphony X will unfortunately not be appearing at Castle Fest in Serbia in July, as the festival has been canceled. A statement from the Castle Fest website:

Dear all,

We're very sorry to inform you that in the light of the latest situation developments, we're forced to cancel the Castle Festival.

This is the hardest decision we've ever made, but unfortunately this is also the only real option. Ticket sales are simply terrible (our lineup sold 350 tickets in total), and all other projects in Serbia are going down.

Political situation and local incidents which happened 3 months ago led to a few thousand e-mails of potential fans from abroad and another huge wave of mistrust.

In addition we will still make a Judas Priest + Cavalera Conspiracy show in Belgrade, Tasmajdan Stadium on July 1st 2008.

We will start refunding money to all those who bought tickets from June 20th 2008. Everyone will have the choice to get their money back or to convert existing Castle festival ticket to Judas Priest + Cavalera Conspiracy ticket.

Once again, our deepest apologies for this.
