    Hi guys, thanks for your patience and understanding, the last several
    months have been quite frustrating and disappointing....here's the official
    press release regarding our decision to pull the plug on a 2010 fest.

    Thanks, and best to you guys, we'll see ya soon! :kickass:

    CRJ Productions, the organizers of Chicago Powerfest, have issued the
    following statement:


    "We've been holding off making this announcement for as long as we could,
    as we truly hoped there would be some kind of salvation for a Chicago
    Powerfest
    2010 edition. However, with the closing of the Pearl Room last
    August, and the financial stranglehold we've been left in as a result,
    we've been left without a suitable venue and without the necessary funds
    to kickstart a 2010 festival somewhere else. Additionally, the current
    state of the economy and its affect, not only on fans but on us
    personally, have left us no choice but to finally make the decision to put
    Chicago Powerfest on hold for now.

    With that being said, we will continue to spend the rest of 2010 working
    on ideas for taking CPF to a higher level in 2011 and perhaps some other
    ventures to take place before 2010 wraps up. As always, we thank everyone
    for their incredible support over the years. We sincerely appreciate
    everything, and will continue working to bring you the best in metal.
    Cheers!"

    Stay tuned to the forum and to www.chicagopowerfest.com for all the
    latest news and updates.

    Sad, but not surprised to hear this. Glad though to hear it's just on hold and will be back with a vengeance next year. :headbang:

    Hey guys....Sorry to hear this, was looking forward to getting away from the drone of daily life for some kick a$$ metal.....next year though :headbang::headbang:
    What I'm really interested in is:

    "perhaps some other ventures to take place before 2010 wraps up."

    You guys have something up your sleeves? Or is it just my imagination? Care to elaborate some more?

    Good Luck for next year!!

    The loss of The Pearl Room was a terrible blow. Best of luck in the future!
