It's with a heavy heart that we announce that RPM will not be happening in 2017. Despite our best efforts, we have not been able to locate an acceptable new location for the festival, and in the meantime, we've fallen far enough behind on other aspects of planning the festival that, even if we were to find a location tomorrow, we wouldn't have time to put everything together and deliver the kind of experience that people are accustomed to at RPM.
Instead, we've decided to take a year off and focus on finding a suitable site for RPM 2018. We know this sucks, and nobody is more upset about it than us, but we are still hoping for your help as that search continues. If you know of anywhere that might be able to accommodate a few hundred drunk metalhead campers for a weekend next summer, please let us know.
The good news is, because RPM isn't happening, Promotorhead is going to be able to put on a couple of smaller festivals that we wouldn't have had time to plan if we were scrambling to make RPM work. Stay tuned for more details about those. And don't get too bummed. We are doing everything in our power to make RPM 2018 the best year yet!
