ATP - The Fans Strike Back All Tomorrow's Parties - The Fans Strike Back
May 08 - 10
Butlins Holiday Centre, Minehead, England, UK

ATP is bringing back the ATP vs. the fans show retitled as The Fans Strike Back, a collaboration between ATP organizers and the audience, in which both sides choose bands. Bands announced so far include Devo, Sleep, Spiritualized, and Grails. Tickets 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.
