ATP vs. Pitchfork ATP vs. Pitchfork
May 9 - 11
Camber Sands
Sussex County, England
 

All Tomorrow's Parties and Pitchfork Media ... two tastes that will probably taste great together (they'll both co-curate the festival ). The ATP vs. Pitchork festival of 2008 has some solid new bands and some Pitchfork faves like The Hold Steady, Les Savy Fav, and Of Montreal.

 

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 and most recently Autechre and Modest Mouse.
