Frame of speech one of the groups at last year’s festival Raw Fest.

Festival Raw Fest was to be held on the territory of the Moscow plant “Mars” on 9 and 10 July. The organizers said that two days before the public must be 30 groups. First of all we are talking about the headliner of the event – the Belgian metal hardcore band Arkangel, we also expected the groups Foreseen from Finland, Nesseria from France etc.

However, on the eve of the festival official page “Vkontakte” appeared the message the organizer about the fact that law enforcement agencies have voiced many reasons why the festival cannot take place. “The authorities promise to you and to us problems in any place, where would we all have suffered. Alternative solutions other than cancellation, no”, — said in a statement. However, after some time this message has been deleted.

Now the page contains a shorter version of the statement that the festival will go to the plant “Mars” is not necessary. The festival website is unavailable.
