All Tomorrow's Parties' Nightmare Before Christmas is the last big ATP festival of the year, and the 2012 version will be curated by Shellac of North America. The lineup so far is below.
"The members of Shellac are inviting more of our favorite bands to ATP. Some, like Melt Banana and Uzeda, are old friends and comrades. Some, like Neurosis, Prinzhorn Dance School and Buke and Gase, are bands we've admired as fans, but all of them are bands we love and recommend to everyone," said Steve Albini about the lineup.
All Tomorrow's Parties was started in
1999 by London concert Promoters Barry
Hogan and Helen Cottage ... they 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.
