We will also be repeating our In Between Days event, which runs at Butlins between the two weekend festivals...



2. In Between Days curated by AMOS, 6th - 9th December 2010 at Butlins Minehead

If you are planning to come to both December ATP weekends, or wish to stay on after weekend 1 (or come early to weekend 2!) or indeed if you're not coming to our Xmas festivals at all we have limited availability for people to stay on site during the week in between. This year In Between Days is curated by vinyl toy designers AMOS. During the event the small Crazy Horse venue will be open and we’ll be putting on entertainment including bands and djs.

The line-up so far looks like this:

CARIBOU / WOODEN SHJIPS / MOON DUO


With far more bands, DJs and other activities to be announced. In Between Days will cost £100 per person for the four nights, and is available as a 4 berth self-catering chalet. If you only have 2 people in your party who wish to stay, we can place you in a share-a-chalet for the 4 days with another 2 people, so you don’t have to pay for the empty beds.

To book for In Between Days email us at feedback@atpfestival.com with IN BETWEEN DAYS in the subject line and we will give you full information; payments can be made using Paypal or Cheque. Chalets are available at a discounted rate of £75 per person for those going to both ATP Festivals. For full info on In Between Days see this page.
