The festival – which was scheduled to hit Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne on January 23rd, 24th and 26th respectively – was officially canned on Thursday night due to (among other things) poor ticket sales.

Darkc3ll, Dead Letter Circus, Northlane and Frenzal Rhomb are all insanely awesome Aussie bands who pretty much tour the country relentlessly!
