"It's not an easy decision to put one of our events on pause," chief operating officer of evenko, Jacques Aubé, said in a statement. "Several factors must be taken into consideration, including the number of non-festival metal/rock concerts that will be announced over the next few months."
Though the main festival will not happen next year, there will be a year-round series of concerts in Montreal and the province of Quebec presented by Heavy Montreal.
