Organisers of All Tomorrow’s Parties 2.0 wknd 2 curated by Drive Like Jehu happening from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th April 2016 have informed all ticket holders that the event will now move from Pontins Prestatyn to the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester.
Organisers also explain this does not affect Stewart Lee's event on 15-17th April, where they have exclusive use of the Pontins site at Prestatyn, North Wales.
In a statement on their website, (here), ATP announce all tickets for All Tomorrow's Parties 2.0 Curated by Drive Like Jehu are valid for the new venue.
The statement says, "We'd like to apologise for the delay in releasing further details about this event. After discussions with Pontins for 22-25th April weekend, we had planned to run the festival as a shared occupancy of the site - something which is common practice at the holiday camp for smaller capacity events. However, it has now been decided by the management at Pontins that they do not feel it is possible to have ATP festival attendees onsite alongside those customers who are there for a regular family break.
"As a result of this, we feel that it is necessary to move our event from Pontins Prestatyn - in the absence of a suitable venue in the Prestatyn area - the festival will now be taking place at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester. We tried to find the best place that would ensure the least disruption to our customers' travel plans, and also a space in which would compliment the visceral energy of Drive Like Jehu and their hand-picked line-up. Victoria Warehouse is a unique and iconic space situated in the heart of Manchester with the perfect set up for this event."
All ticket holders who purchased chalets will be provided with accommodation at hotels in Manchester in close proximity to the venue. Organisers will be contacting ticket buyers individually to advise on their specific accommodation - this information will be sent out during the week commencing 4th April. (To note - unlike Pontins arrangements - all accommodation will now of course include electricity and bed linen free of charge)
Organisers also want to make sure their customers aren't out of pocket due to transport changes and to limit the inconvenience that the venue change will cause in some cases, those who have purchased non-refundable train tickets to Prestatyn for that weekend, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org by 25th March 2016 with the subject JEHU TRAVEL and we will assist you in rearranging your travel.
