At the end of 2013, ATP bid farewell to their signature UK holiday-camp events. Through following the continued reaction of long-standing fans to this news, and seeing their feelings even further confirmed in a recent ATP Survey which was completed by thousands – it is with excitement that a return to UK holiday camps this November can now be announced. The perfect location has been found too – Prestatyn Pontins in North Wales. The site benefits from being far more respectful, location-wise, to a nationwide customer base, while still being within easy reach of international airports for non-UK attendees.

The new site benefits from a venue complex with two large-capacity stages, both boasting multiple-tiered seated areas to assist with visibility, as well as a huge selection of on-site activities available open to all attendees. These include an indoor swimming pool, football pitch, basketball & tennis courts, crazy golf course, go-kart track, air hockey, and a large arcade games area. More events and activities will be announced over the coming months, along with details of family accommodation deals, to be set in separate, quieter locations. Of course, the beautiful sandy beachfront is also only a few hundred metres walk away too.

Curation this year comes from the acclaimed, Turner Prize nominated, visual artists The Chapman Brothers, who return to ATP ten years on from their first stint. Jake Chapman said; “We are so honoured to have been asked to curate ATP again this November in Prestatyn. Ten years ago we curated the first Nightmare Before Xmas and lost so many brain cells that it’s taken a decade to replace them. It is extremely special for us be involved again.”

The original boutique festival, All Tomorrow’s Parties was founded in 2001 – with Mogwai curating – in the then unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands, UK. Since then the festival has expanded across the globe continuing to set itself apart from large scale corporate events by staying intimate and fan-friendly, whilst influencing countless other festivals along the way. The holiday-camp weekenders offered something that was inimitable in a city, and that many will be excited to continue with. Not just for the nostalgia of the past, but to make the events of the future as memorable and iconic as any previous ATP ever was. Some of the best weekends of ours and our customers lives have taken place in these places. Places so removed from our everyday, busy, city existences. An out of season holiday-camp turned into a temporary town of like-minded music fans.

Barry Hogan said: ”The redux of ATP is something that so many of our fans have wanted and we are really thrilled to be returning to a new location with Jake and Dinos Chapman the first ever Nightmare Before Xmas curators, so many moons ago.”
