Even if you know just a little bit about the music industry, you’ll know that it’s a ruthless machine that sees acts, labels, and pretty much anything else that lives and breathes as a part of it going as fast as it came to fruition. Festivals are no different; just this year Hevy Fest announced their already announced 2016 plans weren’t going ahead, and they were calling it quits for good.
Another once high-profile touring festival that bit the dust is Give It A Name. Named after an At The Drive-In song of the same name, the event originally came to the forefront in 2005 as a one-day festival to promote post-hardcore and punk rock bands, headlined that year by Funeral For A Friend.
