The 2009 All Tomorrow's Parties festival will be curated by the Breeders and inlude Throwing Muses, Bon Iver, Teenage Fanclub and Holy Fuck, Tickets for this event are on sale now.
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.
The festival recently added has added Zach Hill, Foals, The Soft Pack (previously The Muslims), and The Holloys to the show lineup.
