Festival Description

The boutique festival is another great product of All Tomorrow’s Parties. The festival takes place over two weekends and are the last of the year’s UK Holiday Camp festivals. Each weekend will feature different line-ups going under the title ATP - End Of An Era. ATP will continue to promote curated events in the UK, but after our imminent TV On The Radio & Deerhunter curated spring weekends (tickets available now for both here), and these newly confirmed End Of An Era weekends, we will no longer be hosting them at our traditional holiday camp locations.

This is a chance for all of the ATP fans from over the years to reunite at Camber Sands for two huge final parties! We will be bringing back many fan favourites including many past curators and mixing them in with the latest and most innovative new artists around.

Festival Story:

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.

Artist feature 2013:
  • SLINT, hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, released two incredible albums on the Touch & Go label - 1989’s Tweez and 1991’s Spiderland. Spiderland left an unmistakeable imprint on the burgeoning ‘post-rock’ genre and gained many avid listeners across the next two decades. One of those listeners was ATP’s Barry Hogan: “I’ll never forget the first time I heard Spiderland. It’s one of those records that changed my life and even inspired me to reform the band in 2005 by flying to Louisville, and bringing all the original members together for the first time in 13 years. Spiderland still excites me now as much as the first time I heard it. To say we are fortunate to have this incredibly influential band play the final ATP is a huge understatement.” After Hogan’s trip, Slint ultimately reformed to headline All Tomorrow’s Parties UK in 2005, then performed the Spiderland album in full for the first time at another short series of live appearances in 2007. ATP are very excited to be able to invite Slint back to make a very rare live appearance as one of the headliners of the last ever ATP holiday camp festival.
