Troubled indiefest gets new lease of life with 'very special guests'

The All Tomorrow’s Parties festival has been rescheduled for the 7-9 April 2000. The festival was due to be held at Camber Sands Holiday Centre on September 17-19 but was cancelled due to poor ticket sales.

It should have been headlined by Stereolab, Tortoise and Shack and promoters blamed lack of interest on “festival fatigue” at the end of the summer. This should hopefully be eliminated by rescheduling All Tomorrow’s Parties) for April, at the beginning of the festival season.

Although Foundation boss Barry Hogan told NME that 90 per cent original line-up would still be playing, he also confirmed that some big names were to be added and these would hopefully be announced within the next seven days.

All tickets will still be valid for the rescheduled festival but refunds are available from 020 7771 2000.
