Mogwai to close last-ever ATP holiday park festival
With All Tomorrows Parties confirming that their upcoming weekend events at Camber Sands in November and December will be their final outings, it’s now been confirmed that Mogwai will be the last band to ever play the holiday camp fests.

Speaking to BBC Radio 6 Music earlier today, organiser Barry Hogan said that it was a natural choice for the band who first curated an ATP festival to close the event.

The Glasgow post-rock outfit headlined and curated the first All Tomorrow’s Parties festival back in April 2000 and will now appear at the Loop leg, taking place between 29 November – 1 December. Tickets for that can be found here.

The first leg of the End of an Era series is to be headlined by Television, held from 22-24 November.

Mogwai on Grammys playlist
Over the past two decades, a curious musical insurgency has raged on the outermost fringes of the international music scene. Dubbed "post-rock," this burgeoning movement was pioneered by ambitious bands who largely discarded vocals and traditional verse-chorus structures in favor of euphoria-inducing song cycles. Now, eccentric outliers such as Canada's Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Scotland's Mogwai, Iceland's Sigur Rós, and Chicago-based Tortoise are increasingly being recognized as rock visionaries.
