ATP vs. Explosions In the Sky All Tomorrow's Parties - curated by Explosions In the Sky
May 16 - 18
Minehead, England
 

The ATP proper this year will be curated by Explosions In the Sky. They've already chosen a number of bands, including the recent additions of De La Soul and Battles.

 

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.
