ATP Festival has moved their exceptional April 22nd-24th Drive Like Jehu curated billing from Pontins in Prestatyn to the Victoria Warehouse, a unique and iconic space situated in the heart of Manchester. The new venue provides an innovative space which compliments the visceral energy of Drive Like Jehu and their hand selected line-up, and is ideally situated for ATP’s nationwide and international audience.

To accommodate the festival’s new city-based location, ATP will also be selling day tickets at £35 per person, with weekend tickets on sale at £100 per person. Tickets are available from the ATP website now at or from Victoria Warehouse directly at

James Cohen, Owner of Victoria Warehouse comments – “After a successful 4 years of running music events at Victoria Warehouse, we are very excited to be working alongside ATP Festival to bring you the venue’s first three day music festival this April. ATP join a list of ever increasing promoters such as Live Nation, BBC Radio 6 Music, Vevo, Cosmosis & more who are opting to work within our venue.

The beauty of the Victoria Warehouse is the flexibility of the space creating both intimate and expansive areas, which allow us to create an ideal setting for hosting indoor music festivals. The sheer raw industrial feel of the buildings which have kept many of its original features, mirrors ATP Festival’s ethos of originality and independence. We look to forward to hosting ATP’s debut event at our venue and building a long standing relationship which such an iconic brand.”
