Second weekender planned for Camber Sands will be called All Tomorrow's Parties...

A second BOWLIE WEEKENDERr-style festival is now set to take place in the autumn.

Promoters Foundation have revealed that the festival, called All Tomorrow’s Parties, will take place at the same Camber Sands Pontin‘s venue from September 17-19.

Unfortunately, Domino – Pavement‘s label – called today to say that the band will not now be able to play the event despite earlier reports on and in NME that they would headline at it.


The Bowlie Weekender was originally the concept of Belle & Sebastian‘s Stuart Murdoch, who was involved with choosing the bands and organisation.

The extent of Murdoch‘s involvement in All Tomorrow’s Parties is not known, but it is likely Foundation will be responsible for the majority of the bill.

Foundation’s Barry Hogan said: “We were very pleased with the last one but we want to get away from jangly guitars.

“This time we want a bit more of an edge to it, a more eclectic event. We’re looking at more experimental bands.”

Foundation stress no acts have yet confirmed, but bands approached to be on the bill include Tortoise, Boards Of Canada, The Gentle Waves, Autechre and Stereolab.


Foundation are planning another event at the Camber Sands Pontin’s from December 10-13 which they promise will be “completely different from anything we’ve done before”.

Hogan said: “It’s in the early stages at the moment but it’s nothing to do with Christmas.

“We’re still planning part two at the moment so it’s too early to say.”

Tickets for All Tomorrow’s Parties go on sale on June 5 priced at ’90 and ‘130 (depending on size of chalet) including three nights’ accommodation available from Ticket Web on 0171 771 2000.
