In response to the publication made by Barcelona Rock Fest on their official social media pages regarding our performance scheduled for June 30, 2022 we must communicate the following:
First, we must clarify that the statements contained in their announcement do not conform with reality.
The Festival Promoter and MANOWAR reached an agreement in June 2020 regarding MANOWAR’s performance at Barcelona Rock Fest; otherwise we would not have authorized and supported the festival’s announcement of our participation and their promotional efforts.
The promoters of this festival are now trying to unilaterally modify the terms.
MANOWAR’s greatest wish is to reunite with our Spanish fans and to perform at Barcelona Rock Fest. This will only be possible if the agreed upon terms will be fulfilled by the promoters.
We are ready to fulfill our obligations under the deal and have made substantial efforts preparing for this show. The only party that is refusing to comply with their side of the deal are the promoters of Barcelona Rock Fest by demading to change significant terms at the last minute.
We have the utmost confidence that the situation will be resolved and that the promoters of the festival will finally fulfill their obligations, so that the fans of Barcelona Rock Fest can see the headliner that has been advertised for June 30, 2022.
Unfortunately, several problems with the organization of this year’s edition of the festival have ocurred, that we hope will not have to come to light.
MANOWAR reiterates that we are prepared to perform at this festival as long as the agreement is met, and we deeply regret all this inconvenience that is being caused by the promoter to the fans.
This situation in Spain does not affect any of our other scheduled performances.
