Organisers of the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival have moved to reassure ticket-holders it will go ahead as planned next month amid rumours of a cancellation.
The event has been an on/off part of the UK live music calendar during the past few years, but is due back at the Pontins holiday camp in Prestatyn, north Wales on 15th-17th and 22nd-24th of April, with one leg being curated by Stewart Lee.
However, there has been suggestions it may not take place afterall, and in response a statement posted on Facebook blames the origins of this on ‘miscommunication’ with the event’s hosts.
“For clarity, and to reassure customers who have purchased tickets or travel for the upcoming festivals, these events will go ahead as scheduled: at Pontins Prestatyn, on 15th-17th April & 22nd-24th April,” the statement reads.
“We would like to apologise for our silence today, and for not getting back to all of your questions individually. We have been working with Pontins Management to release a full statement confirming this within the next 24 hours.”
It’s all still not entirely clear however, given Billboard‘s report that a Pontins booking agent has said it is yet to receive payment.
