Event Information

All Tomorrow’s Parties is celebrating 10 Years of ATP, kicking off with a special 10th Birthday festival on December 11 - 13!

We will be celebrating 10 years of ATP from December 2009 to December 2010. As the fastest selling ATP ever, Nightmare Before Christmas curated by My Bloody Valentine is almost sold out, to get things going for our milestone, ATP is incredibly excited to reveal that we will commence our 10th birthday festivities with a second weekend in December and we want you to come and party with us!!!

The Ten Years Of ATP festival will take place at Butlins Resort in Minehead from Friday 11th December to Sunday 13th December, 2009.

As this is our birthday party - it is going to be very special weekend. For the line up we are inviting our nearest and dearest to play – which means past ATP curators, ATP recordings artists and some ATP favourites thrown into the mix too...

Tickets for this special event will be priced at £160 per person for room only accommodation and £170 per person for self-catering.

Please see below for information from Festival Tour Bus regarding new bus services from a number of locations in GB to both of our Christmas festivals. We hope that this will provide an easier service for many of you in further off places to get to the events!

ATP and the Festival Tour Bus have teamed up to offer affordable environmentally friendly coach travel to this year’s ATP festivals; Nightmare Before Christmas and 10 Years Of ATP.

Forget about those worries of trying to book and navigate train stations, crowded carriages and stacking rucksacks in the over flowing luggage rack. Leave the car at home and avoid traffic jams and a sober weekend.

Instead why not recline your seat and relax with our onboard entertainment in a cool air conditioned luxury coach. Our dedicated festival tour rep will cater to your every need with a range of onboard facilities, sip a chilled drink and snack on finger food. Your seat will be guaranteed for a return journey and our drop off point is at the festival door.

Offering 10 centralized city pick up points, and a return ticket starting from £37 per person, we guarantee to get you to the festival on time. Between August 14 and September 14th tickets will be sold at a reduced 'queue jumper' price!

Coach travel is the most environmentally friendly form of public transport and in 2006 an estimated 285,000 tCO2e were saved from using coaches instead of cars (data ECCM). - This is equivalent to reducing up to 16 cars on the road per coach travelling.

So by choosing to use the FESTIVALTOURBUS instead of a car/train to get to Butlins Minehead, you are helping reduce congestion on local roads, reduce your carbon footprint and you get to travel with likeminded festival goers to the parties of 2009.
