115 for room only (and full 3-day festival pass), 135 for self-catering chalet.

But there are no one-bed chalets, it's 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 person accomadation only. So the minimum you have to pay (2 person) is actually 230 (plus quite a large booking fee).

And I'm afraid the 2-person chalets (twin AND double) are now sold out.

The next one up (a 3 berth chalet) is 345 (plus the aforemntioned incredible booking fee).

It seems that the 2 bed ones aren't totally sold out. You can also get tickets from Wegottickets, not just see tickets. If you click the 'buy tickets' link on the main atp page before going to the Nightmare Before Christmas section it gives you the option of 2 different ticket vendors.

You can't buy a ticket for one day only. Just the 3 days of the festival.

Hi there Greenlight . How the devil are you?

The nearest airport to Minehead would probably be Bristol. There are two or three flights a day from Dublin to there with Ryanair, and then you can get from the airport to Minehead by National Express coach.

There's an Airport in Exeter, but I suspect that it probably doesn't cater for the states. I would check that out first, because the overwhelming amount of traffic will be coming from Bristol, and from Exeter it'll be far quicker. Or, if you're like me you can catch a short bus ride down to the frankly horrible town of Minehead... and the fun thing is, there's going to be loads of confused people wandering around asking, "Why the hell did they choose this shit-hole for a festival?" THERE IS NOTHING IN MINEHEAD.

But there WILL be. For one whole weekend!

Ever been to Camber Sands? Fuck all down there either. A Pontins and a cash point as far as I could tell. But it was a GREAT place for ATP.

(I do agree with you, though. They could've at least tried for the Butlins in Bognor Regis... )

Minehead used to have one 'nightclub' (owned by a friend of mine). It shut down recently. Which is to say that if you want to drink after the bands are finished, you'll have to stock up before the bands starts. It wouldn't surprise me, given the problems the nightclub had, if there are enormous curfew problems with the bands.

I dunno about that, when I went it seemed ok. A tesco's here, a beach there. That's all you need men.

Bognor???? But the place is a total shithole filled with the mentally deranged and more than just the occasional psycho.

That is strikingly like Minehead. We can all be thankful it's not Yeovil though.

I can't imagine they would hold ATP at a place where curfews would be a problem.

As for alcohol.. at ATP last year the pub on the site (Pontins in Camber Sands) stayed open practically all night. The live music in the venues finished at midnight, but the pub served alcohol and had DJs going til 5am... The only time there was "nothing" happening was between the hours of 5am and about midday. And during most of that "nothing" time there were still loud-music chalet-parties happening. And bonfires. And lots of people generally running around.

I myself spent a lot of time in the adventure playground in the pitch dark, climbing on the pirate ship and swinging on the swings.

If you wanted more alcohol than was available on site, you just popped into nearby Rye and went in the supermarket.

According to the ATP website, the NEW venue has a supermarket on-site and something like 7 bars/pubs... so..

(Sounds like I'd fit right in.. )

I went to the Butlins in Bognor once when I was a kid. I hear they've added a huge new 10milion hotel since then...

I'm getting almost as excited about all the cool people from this board that I might meet as I am about the thought of seeing all the great bands!
