Godspeed You! Black Emperor set for ATP
ATP today announced GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR as curators of the Weekend 1 Nightmare Before Christmas festival this December.
ATP Founder Barry Hogan told us "Godspeed performed at the Bowlie Weekender as well as at some our early ATP festivals, and so we are very proud to have one of our favourite bands back after a long break to conclude our 10th anniversary."
The festival weekend will run from the 3rd-5th December at Butlins Holiday Centre, Minehead featuring around 40 bands picked by Godspeed You! Black Emperor, who will also perform.
The first set of line-up additions are:
GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR
MIKE WATT (Minutemen, fIREHOSE, Stooges)
Godspeed You! Black Emperor will perform on all three nights in the Centre Stage venue. As this venue does not hold the entire festival capacity, ticketholders will choose one night for which they will receive a guaranteed entry wristband. Once wristbanded people have entered the venue each night, others will be allowed in on a first come first served basis allowing some people to see multiple shows.
Tickets for Nightmare Before Christmas curated by Godspeed You! Black Emperor are priced at £165.00pp for room only and £175.00pp for self catering and go on sale this Friday 9th April at 9am from www.atpfestival.com

EARLY BIRD SPECIALS + GENERAL ON SALE
We will also be offering a small amount of early bird tickets at a £20 per person discount (£145pp room only and £155pp self catering). These will be available until Friday 16th April (unless they run out first). Also available will be a batch of early bird tickets at a £10 per person discount (early bird £155pp room only, £165pp self catering). These will be available until the following Friday 23rd April (unless they run out first).
ATP will again be running a deposit scheme for the festivals to make it easier for some people to pay. We are offering a limited number of 4 berth apartments, both room-only and self-catering to be paid for with a deposit upfront, and the remaining amount to be paid by the end of September 2010. Both come with a booking fee of £7.50 per person (£30 per apartment). These apartments will be sold at full price; £165 per person room only or £175 per person self catered.
People who would like to hold a 4 berth room only, must pay a deposit of £65 per person, (£260 for the apartment). The remaining £107.50pp (£430 for the apartment) must be paid by September 30th.
People who would like to hold a 4 berth self catering, must pay a deposit of £75 per person, (£300 for the apartment). The remaining £107.50pp (£430 for the apartment) must be paid by September 30th.
As we will be holding the apartments for you, all deposits will be non-refundable, so please only apply if you are sure you can pay the remaining amount when it is due in September. If you are able to pay through a normal ticket agency upfront for your whole apartment, then please do so and leave the deposit scheme for those people who find it harder to get the full amount together in one go.
You will be required to pay both instalments by either cheque or paypal. Please email deposit(at)atpfestival.com with GODSPEED in the email subject line if you would like to take part in the deposit scheme. Please include: your name, address, which type of room you want (room only or self catering) and which payment method you would like to use (paypal or cheque). You will then be given details of how to pay by your chosen method. Chalets will be granted on a first come first served payment so please try to pay quickly once we have given you the details so that you won't miss out.
