All Tomorrow's Parties goes into liquidation?
ATP appear to have declared insolvency
Chris Swindells - 04 July 2012
ATP Concerts Limited applied for liquidation on June 18th and held a meeting with creditors on June 28th.
All Tomorrow's Parties, named after the Velvet Underground song, have hosted many festivals and live events since their first event, the Bowlie Weekender, curated by Belle & Sebastian at Camber Sands in April 1999. Since then the festival has expanded to the US, Spain, France and Australia, attracting names from The National to Slayer, Battles to Matt Groening.
A quick look at ATP's terms and conditions indicate that the festival is now trading under 'Willwal Ltd & ATP America, Inc.', the Willwal Ltd name was registered 31 May this year and the London-based company lists Barry Hogan (the festival's founder) and Deborah Higgins as directors.
ATP have tried to allay concerns over future shows and posted this via their Facebook page: "To address the rumours some of you may have seen; there are some changes currently happening with the company, but none of the currently scheduled events or future events will be affected."
An official statement from ATP is expected later today.
