ATP Festivals are set to storm back to UK holiday camps, with A Nightmare Before Christmas returning this winter.

For years, ATP were a regular and legendary fixture at Butlins in Minehead - before their swansong festival in 2013. In their time, they welcomed timeless performances from the likes of The National, Mogwai and Nick Cave.

Now, they're back - announcing a huge line-up for Pontins in Prestatyn, North Wales. 

Curated by Jake and Dinos Chapman, the line-up so far features Max Richter performing The Blue Notebooks, The Notwist performing Neon Golden, The Album Leaf performing In A Safe Place, Holly Herndon, Dinos Chapman, Death, Loop, Ought, Blanck Mass, Iceage, Fumaça Preta, Andrew Hung, Sculpture, Younghusband, Vision Fortune, Grimm Grimm and many more to be announced.

All of that, plus chalet accomodation and all of the fun that comes with a Welsh seaside holiday. 

"We are so honoured to have been asked to curate ATP again this November in Prestatyn," said Jake Chapman. "Ten years ago we curated the first Nightmare Before Christmas and lost so many brain cells that it's taken a decade to replace them. It is extremely special for us be involved again."

ATP Founder Barry Hogan added: "The redux of ATP is something that so many of our fans have wanted and we are really thrilled to be returning to a new location with Jake and Dinos Chapman, who were the first ever Nightmare Before Christmas curators, so many moons ago"

ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas will be a Pontins, Prestatyn Holiday Centre in North Wales from 27 - 29 November. Limited Early Bird tickets will be available from 12pm on Friday 20 March.
