Organizers of the Kingdom Of Hegyalja festival in Tokaj, Hungary have been forced to cancel the event. NIGHTWISH was due to perform at the festival, but they will now play a headline show in Budapest, Hungary on July 15th at Petöfi Music Garden.

The purchased tickets for this festival will be valid for the new venue, for refund or ticket exchange. Fans are advised to contact their ticketing service or point of purchase.

Following is a statement from the organizers of the Kingdom Of Hegyalja festival regarding the cancellation:

“Due to unexpected problems relating to land-lease the festival between July 15th – 19th will not go ahead at Tokaj-Rakamaz. We have not got the festival site at our hands in the format we previously agreed on with the local municipality, thus we made the hurtful decision not to go ahead with our event. We are working tirelessly on rearranging shows at selected venues, and will provide information in due course.”
