ATP's much loved/hated Barry Hogan, of festival promoter Foundation, continues: "Last year was the busiest and most succesful year yet for ATP. We had an event in LA and two weekends at Camber Sands. Shellac produced an amazing event in the UK. I have no doubt that next year's event will be our best yet. Autechre have put together an amazing line-up... we are not finished yet."
Autechre have as of writing confirmed the following for live appearances at ATP 2003:
A Guy Called Gerald
Drexicyan DJ Stingray
Thirstin Howl III
Kool Keith & Kutmaster Kurt
The Magic Band
Bernard Parmegiani (perfoming De Natura Sonorum)
Rhythm And Sound (Dj set)
Anthony 'Shake' Shakir
Additionally the following will appear in the Skam Records Room: Gescom, Bola, Team Doyobi, Meam , Push Button Objects, Wevie Stonder, Freeform, Tatamax, Quinoline Yellow, Alder And Elius, Made, N M B Allstars, MR 76, ZK, Skam DJS and DJ WOODY (itfc champ 2001)
Autechre and Foundation are still finalising the bill but as Hogan says: "Regular ATP attendees will know the score. We get 90% of the bill confirmed before Christmas and then put the icing on the cake, so to say, nearer the time. One thing is for certain this will be a quality event. In fact, so popular has ATP become that 1/3 of the festival tickets have been sold without the line-up being announced."
The price for ATP admission includes 3 consecutive days with performances starting in the mid-afternoon running through to midnight. Bars and DJ sets conclude proceedings just as dawn breaks. Tickets include admission to the event and 3 nights self-catering accommodation in a chalet. Onsite facilities include: swimming pool, restaurant, shop/off-license, mini golf and go-karting.
Tickets for the ATP 2003 are on sale now via the ATP website and are priced £110 + £5 booking fee each. As tickets include accommodation they can only be bought in blocks. Such is demand for the event that 5 and 8 berth chalets are already sold out and tickets are only available in blocks of 4 (£460 total) 6 (£690 total) and 7 (£805 total) So get your group together and book fast.
ATP continues stateside operations next year with events on both seaboards - June 2003 sees Matt Groening curate ATP LA and in September Stephen Malkmus oversees ATP NY. For further information and tickets head over to www.alltomorrowsparties.co.uk.
