There should not be this much confusion over whether a promotions company's two events are or are not happening but here we are - with new information. Following confusion over whether or not All Tomorrow's Parties were going ahead with their north Wales festivals, it's been uncovered by Buzzfeed that the company recently took out a business loan prior to the mess.

Pontins, which is due to host two ATP Weekenders at its Prestatyn holiday park in April, told members of the public on Monday that the events had been cancelled. The holiday park owner confirmed to The Quietus that the three-day events, (which were said to be hosted by comedian Stewart Lee and the band Drive Like Jehu respectively,) weren't happening. Today, Pontins told BuzzFeed News it had yet to be paid for the events, while ATP took to Twitter to insist that there had been some miscommunication and that the events were still happening.

But apparently, "ATP's parent company, WillWal Ltd, recently filed a formal notice of a charge against assets at Companies House. This says the company took out a business loan from Manchester-based Ashley Business Cash at the end of January," according to Buzzfeed. Ashley Business Cash specialises in supporting small businesses with money problems. It says on its website that it can deliver fast cash loans of between £7,000 and £100,000, to be repaid over a period of between six months and a year.

Meanwhile, we just received this email from ATP stating that the events are still a go. We will be updating as the story continues to play out.
