Afghan Whigs are gettin' the band back together(!) to headline the Sunday slot, Slayer will headline Friday (performing Reign In Blood) and Mogwai is on tap for Saturday. Each band is curating their respective day and an initial ATP lineup has been announced.
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..
