Festival fail: Jabberwocky fall-out gigs happening this weekend

Posted at 12:00 pm, August 13, 2014 in Music & Nightlife
Jabberwocky cancelled

In the aftermath of the Jabberwocky clusterfuck yesterday, London’s music promoters have leapt in to rehome some of the bands booked to play the festival. Here are the replacement shows we’ve got confirmed so far…

Neutral Milk Hotel + The Ex

Kurt Vile And The Violators + Nils Frahm

Ben Frost + Forest Swords

Metz + The Van Pelt + Younghusband + more tba

Pissed Jeans + Earth

Deafheaven + Chelsea Wolfe

Ought + Big Ups

Mutual Benefit

Cloud Nothings + Speedy Ortiz + Hookworms

There should be more to follow, so check back here for updates throughout the day.

In other Jabberwocky news, the Dash ticket agency have said they’re taking legal advice against festival promoters ATP to recover funds, and the Zeitgeist PR company (who were originally doing press for Jabberwocky) have publicly distanced themselves from the festival. All of which sounds like pretty terrible news for ATP.
