Soilwork would not be featuring this edition, a message from the band below (Will be announced on their Facebook page shortly)
“We at the Soilwork camp regret to inform you that we will not be able to play at Bangalore Open Air 2016 this year as our “Entry Visas” were denied by the embassy, we had all our paper work in place and we feel disappointed that the Visas were denied without any given valid reason. We were really looking forward to play in India for the first time. We would like to thank Salman U. Syed and his team at Bangalore Open Air who tried their best to make this happen for us and we request all you metal heads in India to continue supporting the festival and keeping the metal flag in India flying high. We promise that we will try our best to make this happen again. For now head to the festival and watch the other wonderful bands performing!”
