All Tomorrow's Parties

All Tomorrow's Parties Adds More Bands

The ever expanding live phenomenon known as All Tomorrow's Parties has made some new announcements for this year's shows, collectively called the United Sounds of ATP. It's a name for 6 ATP shows that will go down in May of 2006, in the original ATP home of Camber Sands, England. It will take place over two separate weekends, with 3 shows happening each weekend.

Broken Social Scene, Boredoms, Lightning Bolt and The Brian Jonestown Massacre have been added to the 2nd weekend show, and Magik Markers, The Flesh Eaters, The Watts Prophets have been added to the first weekend show.

What makes ATP unique is that rather than hiring a music industry person to book the bands, ATP organizers find a musician, artist, or writer to 'curate' the festival - that is, they treat it more like an experience than a business venture.

Curators then create the entire festival — programming bands, DJ sets and a television channel. Check out the information below to see which band or artist is curating which show and when they happen.
