All Tomorrow's Parties: Cancel the cancellation of all future ATPs at Camber Sands
Twickenham, United Kingdom
Because the ATP weekenders are a magical respite from the world. An indie/rock/hardcore/electronica sponsorship-free utopia by the sea for a precious few days and there is no equivalent in any other festival experience.
In a packed British festival scene where the emphasis is now on brand and consumerism, ATP always represented a last bastion of quality, community and creativity. Like the best festivals of yesteryear we always felt we were part of something special when we attended an ATP event - a small, manageable gathering of like-minded people that loved the music first and foremost. The fact ATP weekenders were always held in traditional holiday camps added to its perfection - safe, self-contained and all the bands easy to reach, it was like going to your favourite gig six times a day. We got to see some of the most dynamic, revered and creative punk, indie and electronica bands that have ever been in existence, and we want to see more. There was nothing like ATP, and there won't be when it finishes. Both for music, and the people who love music, ATP is still important and we don't want it to end.
