Michael Berkens posted about the rumour over on his blog.
Now this appears to have been confirmed by one of the attendees:

Cancelling at this short notice will mean that a lot of attendees will have already booked flights and hotels, some of which will be non-refundable!
There hasn’t been an official announcement from the event organiser as yet, though I suspect there will be within the next 24 hours.
The conference organiser has posted a full explanation of the cancellation citing low attendance and sponsorship.
