All Tomorrow’s Parties 2.0 site of Pontins in Prestatyn, North Wales – chosen for its easy reach for both international and UK customers – benefits from all the facilities associated with holiday camp vacations, including an indoor swimming pool, football pitch, basketball and tennis courts, a crazy golf course, go-kart track, air hockey, a large arcade games area, and a beautiful sandy beachfront only a few hundred metres walk away. As always with ATP’s holiday camp festivals, all attendees are provided with a chalet as part of the ticket price so that you can enjoy the festival whilst indulging in the comforts of your own bed, bathroom and kitchen.

For a limited time only, until December 1st 2015, ATP attendees who have already purchased tickets for All Tomorrow’s Parties 2.0 Curated by Stewart Lee, and would like to amend their booking by swapping for an equivalent chalet to All Tomorrow’s Parties 2.0 Curated by Drive Like Jehu, may do so by emailing feedback@atpfestival.com with the subject header ‘Ticket Swap’.

“The fans will undoubtedly notice the beautiful seaside location, the picturesque beaches with a backdrop of rolling sand dunes, high wind and churning sea. They will travel the last few miles by minicab or bus, enter the camp, pass-by the Water Walkerz, the Crazy Golf – they will find their allocated chalets, unpack, perhaps watch a little ATP TV. They might even elect to go to the cinema to watch one of the many films especially selected for their amusement. But when the music starts we will all move en masse through the arcades…”, Jake Chapman, Visual Artist and 2004/2015 ATP Festival Curator.

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 expanded across the globe continuing to set itself apart from large scale corporate events by staying intimate and fan-focused, whilst influencing countless other festivals along the way.

The holiday camp weekenders offer something that is inimitable in a city. Some of the best weekends of ATP fan’s lives have taken place in these spaces – removed from our everyday, busy, city existences – an out-of-season holiday-camp turned into a temporary town of like-minded music fans.
