ATP Festival to return to Camber Sands in 2013
All Tomorrow's Parties will host the events in the spring/summer of next year
ATP announced earlier today, via Twitter, that they would be putting on festivals next year at Pontin's Camber Sands Holiday Camp. They wrote:
Spring/Summer ATP fests return to Camber Sands in 2013. Announcement coming soon - who do you think will curate? #atpfestival— ATP Festival (@atpfestival) September 17, 2012
In July, the promoters of All Tomorrow's Parties issued a statement about the future of the festival. ATP Concerts LTD, who put on the All Tomorrow's Parties festival in the UK, USA and Australia and also I’ll Be Your Mirror events and stand-alone gigs went into liquidation after a meeting of the company's creditors on June 28.
The company's founder Barry Hogan put out a statement at ATPfestival.com about the restructure, which said: "We have now completed a restructuring of the business of ATP Concerts Limited. This involved the Voluntary Liquidation of ATP Concerts Limited and transfer of its assets (including the rights to the All Tomorrow's Parties festival, label, and shows) to a new company called Willwal Limited."
Hogan added: "ATP remains unwaveringly committed to hosting world class events. Since our inception it has been our mission to provide quality concerts for discerning music lovers around the world - our number one priority has always been the bands and the fans and we work hard, sometimes under difficult circumstances, to achieve the highest standards possible. It is a tough climate out there, but this restructuring will ensure that ATP is around for many more years to come."
The National - pictured above - are set to curate the next UK festival at Camber Sands Holiday Camp, which will run from December 7-9.
