This festival has been cancelled by the organisers, confirmed by doves management. A statement from the festival organisers reads:
NI Free Newspapers Limited owner of thelondonpaper and MAMA Festivals have cancelled the 2 night, multi-venue live music event, thelondonpaper HEADLINERS that was scheduled for 16 and 17 September 2009 in central London.
Both parties felt it would be inappropriate to go ahead with the event in light of thelondonpaper’s imminent closure.
It is with great regret that we have reached this decision however investing in an event of this scale when the paper is due to close the following day would be an irresponsible move. Obviously, this will be disappointing for readers who have purchased tickets but refunds will be offered and customers should contact the ticket agent from which they purchased their tickets to be reimbursed.
