ATP have just announced a whole host of new line-up additions to their ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ festival, which is set for 27 – 29 November in Prestatyn, North Wales. Thee Oh Sees, Natalie Prass, OM and Jessica Pratt are among those that will join Courtney Barnett, Max Richter, The Album Leaf, Holly Herndon, Built to Spill, Iceage, Viet Cong and many more – all curated by Jake and Dinos Chapman.

The newly re-booted holiday camp event brings back all the on-site activities we were used to the first time around, in a beautiful new location by the sea.

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-focused, whilst influencing countless other festivals along the way. The holiday-camp weekenders offered something that was inimitable in a city. Some of the best weekends of ATP’s customers lives have taken place in these spaces. 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.

Tickets are available HERE. And if you do go, make sure you bring me back a stick of rock!
