ATP's I'll Be Your Mirror

Marking a new chapter in the saga – most of it charted here – of ATP, the live promotions co has voided the Grizzly Bear-headlined edition of its I’ll Be Your Mirror all-dayers at London’s Alexandra Palace.

This same event was set back from its original 5 May date (when it was due to accompany a Yeah Yeah Yeahs IBTM event that did go ahead) to one in November earlier this year, with ATP HQ saying at the time that several main acts had cancelled, leaving it “unviable”.

Whilst ATP is still to release a public explanation as to why it now won’t go ahead at all, a WeGotTickets email sent to IBYM attendees reveals there were “problems with the venue and new date”, that meant the event was “not up to ATP and the band’s standards”.

The note adds that fans will be given a “partial refund” for tickets, a point ATP has clarified on Twitter by saying: “That only applies to weekend ticketholders [who also went to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs event]; everyone is being fully refunded the face value ticket price”.
