ATP curated by The National changing venue?
It looks as though the ATP Festival curated by The National might be changing venue.
The festival was set to take place at Butlins Holiday Centre in Minehead from December 7-9th, but it seems that might not be the case, as tickets have been pulled from ATP's website (as well as other ticket sellers) - and Butlins have booked in another event for the same weekend. Strange, right?
By all accounts this might signal a return to Camber Sands, but nothing has been announced yet.
We'll keep you posted when we have more information.
"Butlins have decided to end their six year relationship with the festival. In reaction to this ATP will move The National's event to our original home - the recently refurbished Pontins holiday camp in Camber Sands - on the same dates this December. The venue is just over an hour's drive from the London area. All original ticket bookings remain valid, and refunds will be available until the end of June for those who no longer wish to attend following this change."
