All Tomorrow's Parties have decided to cancel the upcoming I'll Be Your Mirror event, which was due to be headlined by Grizzly Bear.
Rightly lauded for their ability to piece together striking, life field bills, the team behind All Tomorrow's Parties have also garnered criticism for what some view as lack of communication.
Earlier this year, ATP launched plans for two I'll Be Your Mirror events. The first – headlined by Yeah Yeah Yeahs – went ahead, while a second festival topped by Grizzly Bear was pushed to later in the year.
Set to take place on November 2nd, the event will not now go ahead. A notice on WeGotTickets explains that tickets are 'NO LONGER AVAILABLE' while fans recently received the following notice from the ticketing agency:

Please note that IBYM November date has been cancelled. The organisers of this event would like to pass along to following message:
"ATP and Grizzly Bear have sadly decided to cancel the planned I'll Be Your Mirror London concert which had been postponed to November. Unfortunately there were problems with the venue and new date. Between us as promoters and the band it's been decided that it would be wiser to cancel rather than disappoint fans by going ahead with an event that was not up to ATP and the band's standards."
We will partially refund you for these tickets. The refund will appear on the card originally used for payment within 3-5 working days.

Sad news. ATP's final holiday camp event (curated by LOOP & ATP themselves) runs between November 29th – December 1st.
UPDATE: Clash has been in contact with ATP who have confirmed that all ticket holders will receive their money back. The reference to "partial refund" in the wording issued by WeGotTickets is appropriate to weekend passes – those with day passes will receive a full refund.
