All Tomorrow’s Parties have confirmed that their regular weekender events are to come to a close at the end of the year with two final ‘End Of An Era’ events – including Television playing “Marquee Moon” in full.

The ATP events have taken place regularly since 1999 and routinely took place in holiday camps including Pontin’s Camber Sands and Butlin’s in Minehead. The two weekend long End Of An Era event will return to Camber Sands with Television taking part in End Of An Era – Part 1 which takes place on the weekend of November 22-24. Hosted in conjunction with Primavera Festival, the line-up also includes Chelsea Light Moving, Dinosaur Jr, Dinos Chapman, Les Savy Fav, múm, Oneohtrix Point Never, Hebronix, Mike Watt, Forest Swords and The Haxan Cloak.

Meanwhile, Loop have reformed to play End Of An Era – Part 1, which takes place at the same venue the following weekend on November 29 – December 1. Loop split in 1991 but have reunited for the festival and will curate a line-up which so far includes The Pop Group, 23 Skidoo, Fennesz, The KVB, Dirty Beaches, Eaux, Hookworms and Thought Forms.

Issuing a statement on the end of ATP weekenders, Barry Hogan states: “When we started all this fourteen years ago, we had no idea how a festival curated by a single artist and based in a family holiday camp would play out. It was a mad idea that somehow came to fruition, helped by the fact that people were looking for something different from the overpriced conveyor belt corporate rock sponsor-fests that populate the British summer. Looking back we have so many great memories – where else would you find Iggy Pop, Matt Groening, Patti Smith or Nick Cave holed up in a basic chalet at a Pontins’ Holiday Camp? The support from the artists and festival-goers alike has been incredible but it’s time to move on and look towards the future, it may also be time to let Camber Sands rest in peace!”

Meanwhile, upcoming events such as the summer edition of ATP’s festivals – which will feature performances from Deerhunter and TV On The Radio – will go ahead as planned.
