We have now completed a restructuring of the business of ATP Concerts Limited. This involved the Voluntary Liquidation of ATP Concerts Limited and transfer of its assets (including the rights to the All Tomorrow's Parties festival, label, and shows) to a new company called Willwal Limited. We will also be dividing the business into three different companies; ATP Festivals, ATP Recordings and ATP Shows.

The team however, remain the same, having been transferred over to Willwal Limited - and the festival is still called All Tomorrow's Parties. All future events will continue as scheduled on the dates advertised and all tickets for those events are still valid.

ATP remains unwaveringly committed to hosting world class events. Since our inception it has been our mission to provide quality concerts for discerning music lovers around the world - our number one priority has always been the bands and the fans and we work hard, sometimes under difficult circumstances, to achieve the highest standards possible. It is a tough climate out there, but this restructuring will ensure that ATP is around for many more years to come. We thank the fans who have stood by us over the years and especially during this recent time of reorganisation.

Other news we are announcing today is that the U.S. event on September 21 - 23 is to be moved from Asbury Park, New Jersey to Manhattan, New York. This is due to logistical reasons and a full press release regarding the move will be posted here. Anyone unable to attend due to this change will be able to request a full refund.

We have many exciting developments and opportunities available to us that will be announced over the coming months. We will be continuing the work we have done over the past 13 years and would like to thank everyone for their kind support over the past week - we apologise that this statement has taken longer than anticipated to be released (due to needing certain legal clearances) - we thank you again for your patience and apologise for any unnecessary worry caused.

On Monday we will announce the first bands for this December's Nightmare Before Christmas festival curated by Shellac.

Yours sincerely,

Barry Hogan
ATP

This just gets worse.

Wish them the best but Asbury Park was the perfect venue and setting for ATP last year.

Where is my Godspeed NYC show?

@10:38 You mean the same Rocket from the Tombs that played Bell House mere months ago?

why does restructuring warrant a "fuck you"...maybe the move, but restructuring? really? it's not atp presented by livenation.

Hey 10:40, why don't you go start your own music festival and good luck avoiding corporate sponsors, uberdouche. Barry Hogan doesn't give a shit about you or whinging Anonymous hater #27381 because you can only bark at cars on the FDR while he's spent a decade running an international music festival and trying not to go broke. Get your refund and STFU.

For money and exhaustion of it being in NY, may as well just go to England...which I think is the plan.

They'll think your logic is just a stupid in the UK. Stay at home.

Asbury was sort of cool but the sound in that convention hall was terrible..

12:53 Why pay the expense of a NY hotel and ATP ticket, when you can get the actual ATP experience by attending the festival in the UK. Sorry, but just makes more sense. Obviously dollar for dollar NY is cheaper, but this is not what people signed up for. ATP is meant to be experienced as it was in upstate or in AP, not in some shit NY venue.

1255: true Convention hall needed improvement, that said, Paramount was sick.

Ok 1:08, but for that much $$, F--k a concert. Chilling on a beach in the southern Mediterranean kills any festival! Have fun!

The only way this could be salvaged would be to add the iPods -- good diversity from track to track!

Thanks 1:26, I can't stop laughing.

Wow iPods poser meme dude - you really are one desperate jealous fuck aren't you!

Asbury is a dump.

I really do feel bamboozled by all this shite

Posted by Anonymous | July 14, 2012 11:30 AM

I wish ATP would just say, "Yeah, we aren't selling too many tickets for the event so we are going to move it to a more well known city/venue". I would totally be okay with that.

It's not just accommodations that is the problem. There are plenty of neighboring towns that have hotels and homes you can rent for the weekend. It's a shore town, and the season is over by then.

I, as well as many of my friends that already have tickets, are upset that ATP won't be in AP this year and probably will not go to the NYC show. Last year was great, at least we have that memory.

HOT SNAKES come play the Asbury Lanes when you are done with ATP in NYC.
