A band have allegedly been asked by promoters All Tomorrow's Parties to pull out of a Jabberwocky festival replacement show due to 'contractual obligations'.

The Van Pelt were due to play The Shacklewell Arms in Hackney Downs, London, on Saturday (August 16) alongside Metz and Iceage, but a note posted on the event's Facebook page says that the band can no longer appear due to a deal made with the promoters of the failed festival. It reads: "We're very sad to say that The Van Pelt can't play this show now due to contractual obligations with ATP."

A number of bands who were scheduled to perform at Jabberwocky, including Neutral Milk Hotel, have begun arranging replacement gigs around London. Click here for the latest listings and to see where bands will be playing on Friday and Saturday.

A statement from All Tomorrow's Parties says ticketholders for the cancelled Jabberwocky event, which was due to take place at London's Excel Centre tomorrow (August 15) and Saturday should contact their own banks for a refund if the ticket agent Dash Tickets will not pay up.

The organisers of the cancelled event directed ticketholders back to the point of purchase for a refund. The majority of tickets were sold by the agent Dash Tickets, but Dash have released their own statement stating that they passed on all money from sales of the tickets to the festival organiser. They add that they are "very keen to learn where the money has gone" and are pursuing legal action to recover money they have spent as part of their business relationship with the festival.

A statement on ATP's Facebook page reiterates the assertion that it is not ATP's responsibility to refund tickets. The statement reads: "To confirm, even though some outlets may take longer than others, it is ATP's only goal to ensure that all customers receive their due refund. For the vast majority of people, Dash Tickets will be their point of purchase. It is their responsibility to refund the customer, as they were the company that took payments; not ATP. And if Dash are not being helpful facilitating this matter, your next point of contact should be directly with your bank or card provider to order a chargeback of your purchase amount."
