Event Information


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. Last December we hosted our first In Between Days; bands including Dirty Three and F*ck Buttons performed in the small Crazy Horse venue, we chartered a Steam Train and had a film screening and performance from Crispin Glover.

This year In Between Days is curated by AMOS. Amos was set up in 2002 by James Jarvis, Sofia Prantera and Russell Waterman. James had previously designed toys for fashion brand Silas, beginning with the now legendary Martin figure, released back in 1998. Along with Bounty Hunter in Japan, Silas unwittingly became one of the pioneers of the soft vinyl designer toy revolution. During the event the small Crazy Horse venue will be open and we’ll be putting on entertainment including bands and djs. AMOS have picked:

In Between Days will cost £100 per person for the four nights, and is available as a 4 berth self-catering chalet. If you book a 4 berth self-catering apartment for both weekends you will be able to stay in the same apartment. If you have booked other accommodations for either weekend 1 or 2, you will need to move into a 4 berth self-catering from Monday to Thursday.

Apartments are to be charged at £400 for four people for the four days. People staying can be people who are staying from weekend one, people who are arriving early for weekend two, or people who are not attending either event but wish to come for the week in between. Please note, it is the responsibility of the ticket buyer to ensure the correctly wristbanded persons are sleeping in the apartment at any one time.

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 for £200, so you don’t have to pay for the empty beds.

Please note people who are not attending either of the weekend events but wish to come should contact feedback@atpfestival.com for a full list of terms and conditions. Tickets will be available on will call- they will not be mailed out.

Tickets are available at a discounted rate of £75 per person for those going to both ATP Festivals.
