The Ragnarok Festival that was scheduled to take place on November 4th in Perth, which was to feature performances from the likes of Doro Pesch, Gamma Ray & Elvenking has been cancelled. The organisers of the event have issued the following statement with regard to the cancellation:

"It is with deep regret that Metalism UK has to announce the cancellation of the Ragnarok Festival, scheduled for 4/11/06 in Perth, Scotland. It has not been an easy decision to reach, and one we are extremely disappointed to have to make, however due to the low volume of ticket sales, combined with the higher than expected operating costs, we are unable to proceed with the show.
Our sincerest apologies to everybody who has supported us since the announcement of the festival, to the bands, and especially to the people who have already purchased tickets. Refunds are currently being arranged and should all be completed within the next two weeks.."
