Left To Suffer, The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, Etc. Drop Off Kentucky Irate Fest

More bands have decided to pull out of the upcoming Kentucky Irate Fest. Among them are: Left To Suffer, The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, Kaonashi, Born A New, Downswing, Boundaries, Summoning The Lich, Kingz & Thieves, The Behest Of Serpents, The Delirium Effect, Inferious, Fight From Within, and more. This news comes after Isolator, Artica, Belushi Speed Ball, Wake Up In Tsunami, etc. previously dropped off the event.

The cancellations came about due to buy-on practices, ticket selling quotas, and more. On top of that, Until The Dead Walk were also dropped from the festival and their tour with Filth after vocalist Ren Young was accused of rape by Sero\\tonin vocalist Melissa George. Young was reportedly an investor in the festival, so the troubling allegations are playing a role in the departures as well.

Several bands issued statements:

Left To Suffer:

“In light of recent events we feel like it’s in our best interest to back out of Kentucky Irate Fest. We are sorry to anyone who planned on coming out to see us. We promise we will be back and can’t wait to be back on the road this coming fall. Love you all ❤️”

The Last Ten Seconds Of Life:

“We will not be performing at Kentucky Irate Festival on 8/26 We will still be announcing the new line up next weekend”

Born A New:

“it’s time. we hate to do it, but unfortunately due to recent events and how it’s all unfolded over this past week, we’ve made the decision to also respectfully back out of Kentucky Irate Fest. we did everything within our control to try and make a born a new set happen, but this is for our best interest. we are deeply sorry to all who planned on hanging with us and catching our set. we promise to make it up to y’all, we will be back Louisville. we love y’all 💙”

Downswing:

“We will no longer be performing at Kentucky Irate Fest. Unfortunately this means we will have to cancel our surrounding tour dates as well due to logistical issues. We are so incredibly sorry to anyone that was looking forward to seeing us and to all of the bands/promoters playing or putting on the shows we had booked around this festival. We’re extremely disappointed and angered by the events we have learned about this past week. It’s a shame that something like a heavy music fest meant to unite a scene has done the complete opposite”

The Kentucky Irate Fest is currently scheduled to go on as planned at The MG Prime Entertainment Complex in Louisville, KY on August 26-28. Organizers issued the following statement:

“A lot of misinformation is out there about our festival. Below is a list of CONFIRMED bands to still be performing at Irate Festival (the agents and managers have confirmed their involvement still with our festival). Yes, our venue is behind a Marathon gas station, it is a 2 acre lot that has plenty of room for stages. Yes, we have stages and a full sound team. Yes, we have a high end backline being provided. Yes, we have the same food trucks. YES, our festival is still happening. New set times will be released in the coming days. Sorry for all the drama and issues surrounding our festival, but we promise you it will still be an amazing event!
