The festival would take place next month (May 17-18-19) in Zelhem, the Netherlands. At the time of writing, there was no statement from the organization, until last night:

The ticketsales for this edition of the (Rock) Alive festival have been disappointing so much that it’s no longer sensible or justified to continue. So to our deepest regrets we see no other way than to cancel the whole festival. This also puts an end to a journey that started five years ago with a whole lot of passion and enthusiasm for the Christian music scene. That even adds to the regret we feel for having to make this decision. Continue reading »

We are on good terms with the team and wish them well with their endeavours. We understand that people will be disappointed and we are deeply sorry for that. In the interest of remaining professional and respectful we will not be offering further comment and we hope that you will be able to be supportive of both us and Alive in this. The good news is Detritus is back and we are working on something special for you and we will do everything in our power to be back in the Netherlands ASAP and make it up to you.
