Vasby Rock Festival have been forced to take the hard decision of filing ourselves for bankruptcy. Therefore the fourth edition of the VRF will not be. This difficult and tough decision was taken in agreement with all members of Väsby Rock Management when the ticket sales in 2015/2016 were not up to par with the budget we expected and hoped for. We hope for your understanding of the situation we find ourselves in and we are incredibly saddened by what has happened.
Vasby Rock Festival was born from a dream to have a big festival near Stockholm and Arlanda and hope to attract Swedish festival visitors from all over Sweden and the world with the central location, but it simply has not succeeded.
We have done everything in our power to try to save the festival, but with insufficient ticket sales we did not manage to pay our current accounts. Many bands requires prepayment on its appearance fees, and the closer the festival we get, the harder it is to get all the details together.
An administrator in Bankruptcy will be assigned and he/she will be the person in charge during this entire process. As soon as this person is appointed we will be able to inform you the possibilities and the process onhow to get a refund for bought tickets. We will inform you accordingly on our website.
We also want to thank all of you who have supported us over the years; volunteers, partners, sponsors, visitors and artists, the Police force, the Fire department, security and paramedics and the Municipality. Without you, we would never have managed during these three years . You have put blood, sweat, tears and love for the music and the festival and you are all part of our Rock Family.
We would never have been able to pull this off without you, and you all have a place in our hearts, we love you!
