All Tomorrows Parties present Nightmare Before Xmas


This event has been and gone.

Nightmare Before Xmas curated by Shellac Of North America

ATP Concerts make a return to the festival's original home - the recently refurbished Pontins holiday camp in Camber Sands - and have announced a second festival weekend for this December to precede the now sold out weekend curated by The National.

Shellac of North America curated one of ATP's earliest events 10 years ago this year and make a return to ATP to headline and curate this year's Nightmare Before Xmas, to help celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band.

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.

This event is strictly over 18s only.

Nina Nastasia

Nina Nastasia appearing at this event

Hearing her voice is like being wrapped in silk sheets and slowly rocked into a blissful state of peace and relaxation. She is compared to Nick Cave and PJ Harvey, but Nina Nastasia has a dark, unnerving strength all of her own. The US has produced few original singer-songwriters so in touch with its contemporary condition.

Wire appearing at this event

Wire are the undisputed originators of experimental postrock. Since their formation in London in 1976, Wire have maintained and advanced a musical project which treats the creative potential of a rock band as a fluid, amorphous medium. As removed from self-conscious intellectualism as they are from the inherent conservatism of much rock music, Wire employ their unique, endlessly restless and risk-taking creativity to question every aspect of songwriting, recording and performance. They delight and disturb in equal measure, troubleshooting the circuitry of perfect pop, or patrolling the limits of focused experimentalism. Having virtually drawn the map of modern guitar effects, they are cited as heroes by such diverse acts as Fugazi, My Bloody Valentine, Black Flag, Guided By Voices, and Blur.
