ATP to revive holiday camp festival this November

By | Published on Thursday 19 March 2015


Now, you remember how back in 2013 ATP held its “last ever holiday camp festivals”? You were sad, weren’t you? Yes. Well, not to worry, because they’re back again now. The promoter’s winter-time Nightmare Before Christmas festival will return this November.

The event will be curated by visual artists Jake and Dinos Chapman, who acted in the same capacity on the very first Nightmare event. It will also see the festival move to a new site, Prestatyn Pontins in North Wales.

Says Jake Chapman: “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 Christmas and lost so many brain cells that it’s taken a decade to replace them. It is extremely special for us be involved again”.

ATP boss Barry Hogan adds: ”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 Christmas curators so many moons ago”.

Confirmed so far to perform are Max Richter, The Notwist, The Album Leaf, Holly Herndon, Dinos Chapman, Death, Loop, Ought, Blanck Mass, Iceage, Fumaca Preta, Andrew Hung, Sculpture, Younghusband, Vision Fortune and Grimm Grimm.

The event will take place on 27-29 Nov, with early bird tickets going on sale this Friday at midday. More information here.
