Deerhunter's tremendous new album Monomania is out now - and they'll be curating ATP's seaside festival event this June, where they will play multiple sets including full performances of their albums Cryptograms, Microcastle and Halcyon Digest. This will be ATP's final summer holiday camp festival.
Their event takes place at Pontins, Camber Sands from Friday 21st - Sunday 23rd June 2013 and we are very excited to have them headline and curate an amazing line-up of artists.
We can now confirm three more additions to the line-up picked by Deerhunter: a cult U.S. singer songwriter, an artist breaking out into a solo career after fronting a much loved British group, and an inspired and faithful tribute to one of the most fun groups in rock...

CHALET SHARING FOR PAIRS
If you wish to attend but can't find four people to fill a chalet, you can now buy a pair of tickets and we can match you up with another pair to share a chalet. Some testimony from a previous chalet sharer:
"I hardly knew any of the guys I shared with at Shellac ATP, but loved the atmosphere. It actually turned out to be better than sharing with friends, and I'll surely be in touch with them for future gigs and festivals." - Grazia
"I met my friend Jeffrey through chalet-sharing at ATP. We had a great time, now deliberately share, and are basically related as a result. I've since introduced Jeffrey to another friend of mine; and now they're married. So it could be argued that chalet-sharing is responsible for two new families." - Derrick
