Rocktoberfest line-up changes

Hoopy Frood and The Bootleg Blues Brothers no longer performing

Due to unforeseen circumstances, UK bands Hoopy Frood and Friday headliners The Bootleg Blues Brothers will no longer be performing at the Hatta Mountains Rocktoberfest 2010. Local bands Flipside and the Maple Jacks will instead fill their slots on the event line-up.

‘We were very sorry and disappointed to learn yesterday from the promoters, Elite Event Management, that we would not be travelling the Dubai to headline Rocktoberfest in Hatta,’ said The Bootleg Blues Brothers’ Pete Tobit in a statement.

‘We would like to apologise to everyone who was expecting to see us rock the Rocktoberfest and can assure the UAE that we will be back,’ he said, adding ‘We will not rest until we rock the Gulf!’
