ATP cancel I'll Be Your Mirror Japan

ATP have cancelled their forthcoming I'll Be Your Mirror festival in Tokyo, Japan. In an open letter to ticketholders, ATP director Barry Hogan said that it is no longer financially possible to run the event due to slow ticket sales and the unavailability of some artists they were hoping to book. The festival will be rescheduled for later in 2012.

The festival was to be curated by Jim O'Rourke, and confirmed artists included Factory Floor, Nisennenmondai, Michael Rother, The Necks, and Tony Conrad with Charlemagne Palestine. Previously purchased tickets will be automatically transferred from the original dates (14–15 April) to the rescheduled dates, which have not yet been announced. More info here.
