All Tomorrow's Parties - Curated by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds All Tomorrow's Parties - Curated by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
January 17 - 18
Sydney, Australia
 

In 2008, All Tomorrow's Parties started a foray into Australia, bringing their Don't Look Back Series to the continent. It went over so big that they rolled out a bunch of Australian-flavored ATP shows for 2009.

 

The first Australian show, also holding the honor of being the first ATP festival for 2009, is based at Mt. Buller Ski Resort. It will be curated by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

 

All Tomorrow's Parties was started in 1999 by London concert Promoters Barry Hogan and Helen Cottage as a deviation from the corporate festivals of the day. What makes ATP unique is that rather than hiring a music industry person to book the bands, Barry and Helen find a musician, artist, or writer to 'curate' the festival - treating 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.

 

Past curators have included Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, Mogwai, Tortoise, Shellac, Autechre, Modest Mouse and Pichfork Media.
