All Tomorrow's Parties has announced Animal Collective as curators of one of the ATP festivals in 2011.
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, Pitchfork Media and the Breeders.
Tickets are no longer on sale.
