ATP has announced that it will put on a festival in Iceland in 2014, for the second year in a row.

The festival will take place between July 10 and 12 at the former NATO base in Keflavík, which is now called Ásbrú.

ATP founder Barry Hogan said in a statement: "Following our first ATP Iceland event earlier this year headlined by Nick Cave, we're very happy to be returning in July 2014. We are preparing an amazing line-up which will be announced very soon!"

Earlier this year (April 26), ATP announced that their regular UK weekender events would come to a close at the end of the year with two final End Of An Era events. The first one took place last weekend and the second, final one will take place next weekend (November 29).

ATP weekenders have taken place regularly in the UK, since 1999, mostly in holiday camps including Pontin's Camber Sands and Butlins in Minehead. Pick up a copy of this week's NME, which is available on newsstands from today (November 27) or available digitally to read an oral history of the festival, featuring Thurston Moore, Deerhunter's Bradford Cox, Portishead's Geoff Barrow, Wild Flag's Janet Weiss and many more.

Next weekend (November 29 – December 1), Loop will reform to play End Of An Era - Part 2, which takes place at Camber Sands. Loop split in 1991 but have reunited for the festival and will curate a line-up which so far includes The Pop Group, 23 Skidoo, Fennesz, The KVB, Dirty Beaches, Eaux, Hookworms and Thought Forms.
