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..
