Deposit Ticket Scheme Open + New Family Tickets Released
In March 2012 the world famous All Tomorrow's Parties will present the ATP curated by Jeff Mangum festival at Butlin's Holiday Centre, Minehead, UK. The weekend was originally set to run this December, but has been rescheduled to take place on the 9th-11th March. Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum will headline and curate. After releasing one of the most loved & critically acclaimed albums of the 1990s (In The Aeroplane Over The Sea), Neutral Milk Hotel disbanded before many of those who now love their albums had a chance to see the songs performed live, so Jeff's much anticipated return will be a very special occasion for fans. As well as headlining, Mangum will choose around 40 acts to play across the weekend on three indoor stages with a total festival capacity of around 5500 people. Mangum will perform more than once in the more intimate Centre Stage venue, although entry to only one show is guaranteed - he will be performing a solo acoustic set.
Due to receiving many enquiries in the last few years regarding families attending, for this event and moving forward we have decided to launch new Family Tickets. For full info on how to book (childrens tickets for ages 5-12 are available for £50 per child) see: http://www.atpfestival.com/events/jeffmangum/view/familytickets.php It also has info on tickets for under 18s aged above 12.
People who would like to pay a deposit of £70/£80 per ticket for a 4 person apartment now, with the rest payable at the end of February can do so via the Deposit/Installment Ticket Scheme: http://www.atpfestival.com/events/jeffmangum/view/installmenttickets.php
We'd like to once again offer an apology to everyone that was inconvenienced by the rescheduling, to thank them for their understanding, and we hope people will be able to make the new event and enjoy the line-up! The artists from the original line-up who will appear in March are:

ABOUT ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES
All Tomorrow's Parties has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the world for the last ten years. It was founded in the wake of Belle and Sebastian’s Bowlie Weekender, with Mogwai curating in the unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands. Since then the festival has appeared every year and has expanded across the globe continuing to set itself apart from large scale corporate festivals by staying intimate and fan-friendly. The line-ups are chosen by significant bands or artists which results in eclectic events that combine performances by legendary and influential acts with appearances by the latest crop of experimental artists from any (and every) musical genre. The festival has become more successful with every passing year, and ATP events have taken place in the UK, USA, Europe and Australia, with past curators including Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Mike Patton, My Bloody Valentine, Portishead, Sonic Youth, Slint, and Tortoise. This year ATP launches a new series of curated city-based events called I'll Be Your Mirror, starting in Tokyo in February, London in July and September in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
For ten years ATP has set itself apart from other festivals by embracing seemingly disparate artistic genres, with events featuring art exhibitions, cinema programmes, spoken word performances and stand up comedy. It's been called 'Unforgettable' by Spin and 'the most enjoyable festival experience of our reporter's life' by Pitchfork. It has spawned an acclaimed concert series (Don't Look Back), a record label (ATP Recordings), and the release of a feature length documentary about the festivals from Warp X, titled All Tomorrow’s Parties, out now on DVD.
