The Insomniacs Ball cancelled

The Twang-headlined bash axed at a day's notice

The Insomniacs Ball, due to take place in London tomorrow night (April 5), has been cancelled.

The all-night event was set to be headlined by The Twang at SeOne under the arches of London Bridge.

Other bands on the bill included The Longcut, Blood Red Shoes, Brakes, Shakes and These New Puritans.

It has been suggested that poor ticket sales did not help the event, however promoters issued the following statement explaining the cancellation: “Due to circumstances beyond our control The Insomniacs Ball unfortunately cannot go ahead tomorrow as planned.

“We sincerely regret any inconvenience that may have been caused as a result and can assure anyone who has bought tickets in advance that they will be refunded in full through our ticket agency. This is a temporary situation that we are working hard to rectify and will be announcing an alternative date for the next Insomniacs Ball in the near future.”

A spokesperson for the event told NME.COM that all the bands involved had been contacted and attempts would be made to reschedule all the bands for a future date.
