Whether its going to signal a long-term shift is unclear, but this winters ATP festival is relocating from Pontins to Butlins. Having read the blurb on the ATP website, I’m all for this move, after all, the new location offers : “…Burger King, Pizza Hut, Finnigan’s fish and chips, Sun and Moon, Skyline Café and Yacht Club Dining room. Onsite facilities include a cinema, Splash Water World – a sub-tropical environment that has a huge wave pool, a swimming pool, 3 flumes and also a flume based raft ride.”
Oh, Thurston Moore to curate. Iggy and the Stooges, Sonic Youth both confirmed.
AND A FLUME BASED RAFT RIDE !!!
