STS9?s RE:Generation Festival has been canceled. Letting fans know via a Facebook post late in the evening tonight, the band officially released the following statement.
We regret to announce that 2012’s Re:Generation Festival has been cancelled. All customers who have purchased tickets will automatically receive a full refund, which will be issued to the card used on the original order or payment. The refund process is underway, and you should see the credit within the next 5-7 days, if not sooner. If you do not see the credit by May 18 then please contact us via email, firstname.lastname@example.org or phone, 888-512-SHOW. We are sorry, and thank you all for your support of STS9.
No reason has been given at this time though rumors are swirling about lackluster ticket sales due to competeing festivals (notably; Sonic Bloom & High Sierra), canceled artists and possible band member health issues.
Our official guess leans heavily on low ticket sales. We will keep this article updated as more information becomes available.
