ATP Festivals appear to have been cancelled...again

UPDATE (15:49): Barry Hogan has informed us of the following: "We have just spoken to Pontins and we are currently resolving this miscommunication. Our events are going ahead as planned."

Earlier this afternoon it was rumoured that the two upcoming ATP weekenders set to take place at Pontins Prestatyn had both been cancelled. The events had been due to be curated by Stewart Lee and Drive Like Jehu.

ATP have since rebuffed the claims that the weekenders have been cancelled taking to Twitter to say: "These events have not been cancelled, we'll endeavour to keep you updated." However, Pontins themselves have emailed us to confirm that the festivals have been cancelled. You can see a screenshot of our email contact confirming the cancellation by Pontins below. We'll continue to update as the story develops.
