The ATP festival curated by Jeff Mangum has been moved to next year. It was due to take place in December 2011 but the festival will run from March 9-11 2012 at the same place, Butlins in Minehead, Somerset.
To elaborate, a press release/letter from Barry Hogan at ATP reads:
We understand this will come as a shock and we sincerely apologise that we were not able to inform you before now - please know that we do not take this decision at all lightly. Having to reschedule an event like this is no small decision and we realise that many of you will be extremely disappointed, as are we. We try to put the community of ATP attendees first in every decision we make and hope that you will understand when we say that if the postponement was in any way avoidable, then we would not be rescheduling - disappointing the community that makes our events what they are is something we find very painful.
For now, your tickets will be automatically transferred to the new dates in 2012. We are contacting all of the artists on the line-up and hope that many, if not all of them will be able to perform at the re-arranged weekend - and we will also be adding more artists in the coming months to complete the line-up which we're sure will make for a fantastic event. On November 10th we will confirm all of the artists who will stay from the original line-up and also announce some new additions.
If you can't attend the newly-scheduled event, then a refund is possible, you just need to contact the ticket agency you purchased your tickets through. You'll also need to do this before the end of December. In addition to this, the separate London shows for The Magic Band and Superchunk will remain as they were, whilst the Jeff Mangum, Panda Bear, Thurston Moore and Olivia Tremor Control shows may also be moved, but this is not confirmed.
