The original boutique festival, All Tomorrow's Parties was founded in 2001, with Mogwai curating in the then unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands, UK. Since then the festival has appeared every year and has expanded across the globe continuing to set itself apart from large scale corporate events by staying intimate and fan-friendly, whilst influencing countless other festivals along the way.

ATP recently confirmed that two very special December festival events at Camber Sands will be the last ever UK Holiday Camp festivals - two consecutive weekends going under the title ATP - End Of An Era. ATP will continue to promote curated events in the UK, but after our imminent Deerhunter curated June weekend (tickets available now here), and these newly confirmed End Of An Era weekends, we will no longer be hosting them at our traditional holiday camp locations. ATP are bringing back many fan favourites including many past curators and mixing them in with the latest and most innovative new artists around.

Today we can confirm more artists for both line-ups with more past curators, ATP Recordings artists and friends of ATP to be confirmed....

Weekend 1 running from November 22nd-24th is curated in collaboration with our friends at Primavera Sound. Since 2001 the Primavera organisation has been running amazing festivals in Barcelona (and now Porto), featuring ATP curated stages at each event since 2007.

For this weekend we can now newly confirm performances from Godspeed You! Black Emperor,
Low, Tortoise, Magik Markers, Har Mar Superstar, Scout Niblett, Blanck Mass, Los Planetas, Standstill, Refree
and Headbirds. The line-up now looks like this with more to be confirmed

Weekend 2 running from November 29th-December 1st is curated by ATP and LOOP. Hailing from South London, Loop released three mindblowing albums in the late 1980s highlighted by 1990's A Gilded Eternity. Reviewing their recently reissue discography, The Quietus wrote "These were stars that burned and shone with an intense brightness, and it's testament to Loop's vision and delivery that the mark they made is indelible." ATP are very pleased to reunite Loop for this event and also to ask them to collaborate with us on choosing the line-up of the very last ATP Holiday Camp festival.

Today we can confirm that Mogwai (the headliners of the first ever ATP festival in 2000) will play the closing set of this final holiday camp festival. Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai:

“It’s an incredible honour to be asked to close the final ATP holiday camp festival. We couldn't have imagined when we curated in 13 years ago that the festival would have had the impact that it’s had. Back then festivals were moving further to the mainstream and I think the continued strength of underground music in the UK owes a big debt to the work done by ATP. I think getting to play with Loop, musical heroes of ours will be a fitting way for us to close this event.”

They are joined by other new additions - Balam Acab, White Fence, Ty Segall, Föllakzoid, Wolf People, Civil Civic, Tall Firs, Dawn Hunger, Kandodo, New War and DJ Jonathan Toubin.

So far for this weekend the line-up looks like this:

Curated by Loop:

The Pop Group
23 Skidoo
Dirty Beaches
White Fence

Curated by ATP:

Ty Segall
Balam Acab
Edan (DJ set)
Tall Firs
Wolf People
Civil Civic
New War
Dawn Hunger

DJ Jonathan Toubin

+ many more to be confirmed!

You can pay by either Google Checkout (similar to Paypal), Cheque or Bank Transfer. Please email deposit(at) with PRIMAVERA DEPOSIT or LOOP DEPOSIT in the subject line if you would like to take part. Please include: your name, address, chalet size, and which payment method you would like to use. Chalets will be granted on a first come first served basis and you will need to pay your first deposit within one week of acceptance into the scheme.


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 previous chalet sharers:

"My boyfriend and I shared a chalet with two awesome ladies and had a blast! We came from the states, so it was a great way to meet new people and hang out." - Susan

"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

For full details see these links: Weekend 1 (Primavera) / Weekend 2 (Loop)


The events takes place at Pontins Holiday Camp, East Sussex over three days from Friday - Sunday. Check in begins on Friday at midday/noon and Check out occurs on Monday morning at 10am sharp. The events are held in a holiday resort so all tickets include a pass to the festival + 3 nights accommodation in private apartments. Each chalet is self-catering and has a small kitchen with cooking/dining utensils included, bathroom with either a shower or bath and of course a sink & toilet. The TV area doubles as a bedroom with a roll out sofa bed, and then there will either be one or two bedrooms with the relevant numbers of beds. Bedding is included in the chalets.

So you stay on site in your own private accommodation with your friends for 3 nights and you ALSO get a pass to see all of the bands perform over 3 days, plus bar with DJs until early in the morning, free cinema programme, use of site facilities and much more! Apart from nursing a huge hangover, there is a swimming pool, arcades, a beautiful beach across the road, the local pubs and of course Rye Village where there are some very nice places to eat.

Camber Sands is easily accessible via train to Rye (followed by a short bus/taxi ride). High speed trains now run from London St Pancras to Ashford International and take just 37 minutes, then change at Ashford International for a train to Rye (18 minutes).
