The twitter hashtag for the weekend is #shellacatp - keep an eye on the ATP twitter at for important updates across the weekend.

We also some info from the local bus company for those of you arriving by train in Rye...

The Wave route 100 is timed at Rye Rail Station to connect with trains arriving from both Ashford and Brighton. We intend to use extra resources to increase the capacity available between Rye and Camber as follows:

On Friday 30th November and Friday 7th December:

From Rye Rail Station Stop B at 1104, 1204, 1304, 1404, 1505, 1605, 1705, 1805, 1830, 1846, 1905, 1946 & 2005.  (There will be 2 buses on the 1404, 1505, 1605 and 1705 departures) - Buses will show either Camber or Lydd (for Dover) on the destination display.

On Monday 3rd December and Monday 10th December:

From Camber 0818, 0828 (route 553), 0918, 1008, 1018, 1111, 1118, 1215, 1218, 1315, 1318, 1418 - these buses are scheduled to connect with trains from Rye at xx55 mins past each hour.

The fare is £2.70 each way.


Thanks to the generosity of the bands playing we can now present a mixtape featuring many of the artists performing - stream it or download it (good listening material for your trip to Camber Sands!) free from Soundcloud here.

Also we'll be screening Adult Swim's Eagleheart on ATP TV at the request of Shellac amongst lots of other great stuff - check out a trailer here.

Sadly Tamar who was meant to be hosting the Book Club will not be able to attend - instead the Verso book club will host Dr Mark Bould to discuss Valis by Philip K. Dick. Dr Bould's latest book is Science Fiction: The Routledge Film Guidebook (Routledge 2012) and co-editor, with China Miéville, of Red Planets: Marxism and Science Fiction (Pluto 2009). David C. Winters will discuss Labyrinths by Jorge Luis Borges. Winters is a literary critic and a co-editor at 3:AM. Links to his recent articles are collected at Why Not Burn Books?

Here are the stage times... Please note that stage 2 and the cinema can not hold the full festival capacity at the same time so you may have to arrive early if you don't want to risk possibly missing part or all of a set. If a venue does fill up, security will operate on a 1 in - 1 out basis.
