Vibe

ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas is often applauded for not fitting in with the mainstream, many reviews note the vibe feels "democratic" and "low-key"

Venues and other entertainment

You basically stay on site in your own private accommodation with your friends for 3 nights and you also get a pass to see all of the bands perform over 3 days, plus bar with DJs until early in the morning, free cinema programme, use of site facilities and much more! Apart from nursing a hangover, there is a swimming pool, go-karts which are both free of charge, arcades, a beautiful beach across the road, the local pubs and of course Rye Village where there are some very nice places to eat. Camber Sands is easily accessible via train to Rye (followed by a short bus/taxi ride).
