I believe that has happened for some of the bands in the past, or at least the foreign bands played very few shows (Blasphemophagher had 4 other dates, I think they ended up playing 2 of them) but
I know there was some trouble with the transportation costs and flying issues after the fest last year (although I'm sure that's all straightened out this time around since the fest is on a whole new scale.)
MDF pays to fly bands out there, so I'm assuming it's somewhat typical for festivals to do that.
