All Tomorrow’s Parties (ATP) has denied rumours that its two April ATP 2.0 festivals at Pontin’s holiday park in Prestatyn, north Wales, have been cancelled.

Despite Pontin’s telling The Quietus that “both ATP events for this year have been cancelled by the organiser”, ATP insists that’s not the case, blaming “miscommunication”:

The two ATP 2.0 weekenders are scheduled for 15–17 and 22–24 April, curated by Stewart Lee and Drive Like Jehu, respectively.

Sun Ra, The Fall and 13th Floor Elevators’ Roky Erickson are booked to perform on the first weekend, with Rocket from the Crypt, Diamanda Galás and Drive Like Jehu themselves playing the latter.
