The Antibes theme uses the tree outer theme, so you have to modify the corresponding headline template:



    \begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=\paperwidth,colsep=1.5pt]{upper separation line head}
      leftskip=.3cm,rightskip=.3cm plus1fil]{title in head/foot}
      \usebeamerfont{title in head/foot}\insertshorttitle
      leftskip=.3cm,rightskip=.3cm plus1fil]{section in head/foot}
      \usebeamerfont{section in head/foot}%
          \hskip2pt\raise1.9pt\hbox{\vrule width0.4pt height1.875ex\vrule width 5pt height0.4pt}%
% Code for subsections removed here
