The Nightmare Before Christmas event will take place November 30 - December 2 in Camber Sands
The event takes place November 30 – December 2 at Pontins in Camber Sands. The line-up for the festival is yet to be announced, but there will be 35 bands on the bill, including a performance from Shellac themselves.
All Tomorrow’s Parties recently announced its return to its original seaside venue after Butlins in Minehead ended its contract with the festival.
The National will now also host their ATP at Pontins holiday camp – the site of Belle and Sebastian‘s Bowlie Weekender in 1999 – on December 7-9. A statement released by ATP says:
Butlins have decided to end their six year relationship with the festival. In reaction to this ATP will move The National’s event to our original home – the recently refurbished Pontins holiday camp in Camber Sands – on the same dates this December.
The last time ATP took place at Camber Sands was in 2008, for the Pitchfork Media curated edition of the festival.
The National will head up a line-up which includes Kronos Quartet, The Antlers, Owen Pallett, Boris, Tim Hecker, Sharon Van Etten – pictured – My Brightest Diamond, Wye Oak, Lower Dens, Megafaun, Suuns, Local Natives, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Michael Rother presents the music of Neu! & Harmonia, Deerhoof, Menomena, Nico Muhly, Stars Of The Lid, Youth Lagoon, Perfume Genius, Bear In Heaven, Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion), Kathleen Edwards, Hauschka, This Is The Kit, So Percussion and Hayden.
