    Cancellations through the years

    by cowboy71 » Mon Feb 12, 2024 8:04 pm

    There has been some discussion around cancellations particularly because we had so many this year.

    It's not something I've tracked closely previously, but figured I may as well because moar stats moar better :D

    These are the ones I know - have I missed any?

    2011
    Stratovarius - cancelled as got a better offer. Subsequently booked for 2012

    2012
    Pentagram (USA) - cancelled, yet to appear on 70k

    2014
    Kamelot - cancelled (claimed they were never officially confirmed even though announced)

    2015
    Chimaira - yet to appear
    Xentrix - yet to appear

    2017
    Candlemass - appeared in a 70K ad in Metal Hammer. Subsequently booked for 2020
    Gojira - yet to appear
    Nile - subsequently appeared in 2019

    2018
    Borknagar - appeared in a 70k ad in Metal Hammer. Yet to appear on 70k.

    2023
    Decrepit Birth
    Vektor (not cancelled but removed)

    2024
    Avatarium (not REALLY official but worth including. Appeared briefly on spanish version of 70k website)
    Depressive Age
    Draconian
    Legion of the Damned
    Marduk
    Nile
    Thyrfing

    I remember a german magazine placing Borknagar as one of the announced bands for 70K (can't remember which year), yet the announcement did not occur at all. I thought it was worth mentioning.

    Great memory!!!

    That was for 2018 - and a similar thing happened with Candlemass in 2017!

    EDIT: added Vektor to the list. Not cancelled but removed, but worth listing.

    Thanks for this, Statsman.

    Very interesting to see that in 2014 we have had almost as many cancellations as is all previous 11 editions COMBINED. Crazy shit.
