ATP Concerts announce new festival event:
Nightmare Before Xmas curated by Shellac Of North America
November 30th - 2nd December 2012 at Pontins, Camber Sands, UK
Tickets On Sale Friday 15th June at 10:00am via www.ATPFestival.com
ATP Concerts, who last month announced our return to the festival's original home - the recently refurbished Pontins holiday camp in Camber Sands - now announce a second festival weekend for this December to precede the now sold out weekend curated by The National. Following that event's sell out, Pontins have offered ATP a second weekend and after receiving many emails enquiring about whether we would run one of our traditional Nightmare Before Christmas events, we are very happy to announce the return of SHELLAC OF NORTH AMERICA to headline and curate from the 30th November-2nd December 2012 to help celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band.
SHELLAC curated one of ATP's earliest events 10 years ago this year, at which they introduced the Camber Sands audience to bands including Bonnie Prince Billy, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Smog and Low. As one of the most incendiary live rock bands on the planet, having released four stellar albums and having stunned crowds on every hemisphere, Shellac and ATP's long relationship has often seen them called the festival's House Band, and it gives us great pleasure to bring them back as curators for what is set to be a very exciting line-up, the first artists of which will be announced soon. Shellac Of North America are Steve Albini, Bob Weston and Todd Trainer.
We look forward to returning to the festival's spiritual birthplace for an incredible weekend - Shellac will headline and choose the rest of the 35 band bill playing across the event on the venue's excellent indoor stages featuring award winning sound, also featuring DJs until late, Cinema and much more! Tickets include accommodation in private apartments for you and your friends - tickets must be booked in groups of 2-7 people. See below for info on Early Bird and Installment tickets...
Tickets for ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas curated by Shellac Of North America are priced at £180 per person for festival entry + accommodation, and go on sale this Friday 15th June at 10am via www.atpfestival.com
