Correction of conjugated verb

The test question: My mates are not going to celebrate the new year.

HINT: Use Le Futur Proche

I wrote: Mes potes n'iront pas célébrer la nouvelle année.

Correct answer: Mes potes ne vont pas célébrer la nouvelle année.

If 'vont' is Le Présent and 'iront' is Le Futur, then why would my answer be incorrect?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Position of negation with two verbs (conjugated + infinitive)"

Hi Lewis,

The futur proche is constructed by the conjuaged form of "aller" + infinitive:

Je vais célébrer. -- I am going to celebrate.
Ils vont célébrer. -- They are going to celebrate.

-- Chris.

Ok, I see the problem now. I used 'iront' which is futur presént, and completely forgot about the three A1 lessons on futur proche. Thanks.
