Soft ticket sales have sidelined All Tomorrow's Parties (ATP) festival, set for June 20-22 in Los Angeles, until the fall, reports the alternative music fest's website. The event has been rescheduled for September 26-28.
Among the more than 30 acts scheduled for shows running concurrently at the Palladium, the Palace and Henry Ford Theater include Patti Smith, Nick Cave, Yo La Tengo, Wire, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Mission Of Burma, the Breeders and the Magic Band.
The Simpsons creator, Matt Groenig, a former music critic, is the curator of the festival, which got its start in the U.K. Sonic Youth curated last year's four-day event.
According to the festival's website, the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds show will still take place on June 18t at The Hollywood Palladium.
The rescheduled event will remain at the same venues and will still include most of the confirmed line up but will include some new editions.
Event organizers stated, "This was not an easy decision to make and one that was forced so we are very upset that the event has had to move as we appreciate this will inconvenience all involved. We would like to apologize to all ticket holders who may have made plans to come to the festival and want to say sorry to all the artists and staff involved who have worked so hard to try and make this come together.
"This is not the end of ATP LA, we are still in the early stages and are just having a few teething problems. The new revised line-up will be announced within the next 10 days and will be better than ever."
As for the September New York festival, it is still on and will still be curated by
Jim Malkmus and the Jicks, but it will no longer be in Asbury Park. Details of a new location are forthcoming.
