The upcoming All Tomorrow’s Parties festival will take place this year at the Prestatyn Holiday Centre, in the Pontins region of North Wales. The event will be taking place in April of this year from the 22 to the 24 of the month. The lineup includes bands such as The Blind Snake, Drive Like Jehu, The Gories, Holly Golightly, The Spits, Flamin’ Groovies with a special feature from musician Roy Loney.
“Come all ye faithful and be decapitated by guitars and trampled by goodwill. We promise complete rock n roll immersion and at its very essence a celebration of life itself. Subjecting people to our bad tastes is our deep rooted ambition. So, show up or suck eggs,” says John Reis from Drive Like Jehu on the event announcement from the All Tomorrow’s Parties website
All Tomorrow’s Parties is offering accommodations to its guest who are from across the pond or who are from other countries within Europe. The accommodations are located in the back of the Prestatyn Holiday Centre and offer a more quiet and yet close locale to the event. For those who wish to rent an accommodation during the event those families must bring their own towels, bed sheets, pillowcases, and duvet covers, must either be provided by customer or are available for hire from Pontins (at £5 or $7.20 for a single and £8 or $11.52 for a double set), Electricity for your chalet at Pontins is paid for via Meter Cards, which are £5 or $7.20 each and available from machines in the reception area and two keys per chalet are provided at check in. If any keys are lost or not returned there is a £5 or $7.20 charge, issued by Pontins per key. The chalets or small rooms are offered for purchase at the ticket information of the site. Each chalet will cost and average between £159 to £199 per person or $228.94 to $286.53 per person. There are other options such as a payment plan and a payment for families if they wish to partake in the event.

The ATP fest has been moved to the Victoria Warehouse from April 22-24 in Manchester. The event hosted by Drive Like Jehu, was originally set to take place at the Pontin’s in Prestatyn, North Wales from April 22-24. But the event was further scheduled to Manchester on those exact same dates. Nothing else has changed from this point. A press release stated that for those fans who bought the tickets for the North Wales area of the festival will be accommodated at the new location.
