Finland's SINERGY have been dropped from the line-up of artists performing at this year's Rock Machina Festival in Spain (scheduled to take place on July 27th). According to an official statement posted at the band's official web site, "the festival's organizers'] explanation [for the cancellation of SINERGY's appearance at the event] was due to the fact that SINERGY had played Soria Rock (also in Spain) two weeks before Rock Machina and the organizers of Rock Machina did not like that, so they cancelled the band without even informing them. SINERGY had to find out from fans that they were cancelled. Once contacted by the band to inquire if these rumors were indeed true, the organizers of Rock Machina told SINERGY that 'any bands playing at Rock Machina are not allowed to play any other festivals in Spain during the same year. We are very strict on our rules. Sorry, but maybe next year.' In fact there is at least one other band who played Soria Rock, that will also being playing at Rock Machina this year, so those 'rules' seem to only apply to SINERGY."To make sure you understand correctly, SINERGY DID NOT CANCEL the festival, Rock Machina cancelled them. The band apologizes to their fans, especially to those travelling from great distances. SINERGY was really looking forward to play there this year. If you have any complaints to the organizers you can contact Goyo Esteban at [email protected]"
