On Sale Friday 29th October from www.seetickets.com
We are very pleased to invite one of the most exciting indie success stories of the last decade to curate the only ATP festival weekend of May 2011. Animal Collective's last album Merriweather Post Pavilion was hailed with universal acclaim; 5 Stars from Uncut, 8/10 from NME ...and a 9.6 from Pitchfork, who also named it their album of the year and put it in their top 20 albums of the decade. ATP promoter Barry Hogan: "I always wondered what kind of mixtape Animal Collective would put together, so we are really stoked that they are climbing into the curating hot seat at Butlins next May where they will headline and curate the festival that includes the likes of Lee Scratch Perry and Gang Gang Dance from an already eclectic mix of 40+ acts."
The first announcements chosen by Animal Collective for the line-up are:
GANG GANG DANCE
LEE SCRATCH PERRY
ARIEL PINK'S HAUNTED GRAFFITI
MEAT PUPPETS performing Up On The Sun
THE FROGS performing It's Only Right & Natural
THE BROTHERS UNCONNECTED
SUBLIME FREQUENCIES DJs + Films
with far more to be announced!

ATP will again be running a deposit scheme for the festivals to make it easier for some people to pay. We are offering a limited number of 4 berth apartments, both room-only and self-catering to be paid for with a deposit upfront, and the remaining amount to be paid by the end of January 2011. Both come with a booking fee of £7.50 per person (£30 per apartment). These apartments will be sold at full price; £165 per person room only or £175 per person self catered.
People who would like to hold a 4 berth room only, must pay a deposit of £65 per person, (£260 for the apartment). The remaining £107.50pp (£430 for the apartment) must be paid by January 30th 2011.
People who would like to hold a 4 berth self catering, must pay a deposit of £75 per person, (£300 for the apartment). The remaining £107.50pp (£430 for the apartment) must be paid by January 30th 2011.
As we will be holding the apartments for you, all deposits will be non-refundable, so please only apply if you are sure you can pay the remaining amount when it is due in January. If you are able to pay through a normal ticket agency upfront for your whole apartment, then please do so and leave the deposit scheme for those people who find it harder to get the full amount together in one go.
You will be required to pay both instalments by either Paypal or cheque. Please email deposit(at)atpfestival.com with ANIMAL COLLECTIVE in the email subject line if you would like to take part in the deposit scheme. Please include: your name, address, which type of room you want (room only or self catering) and which payment method you would like to use (paypal or cheque). You will then be given details of how to pay by your chosen method. Chalets will be granted on a first come first served payment so please try to pay quickly once we have given you the details so that you don't miss out (therefore we recommend Paypal over Cheque).

ABOUT ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES
All Tomorrow's Parties has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the world for the last ten years. It was founded in the wake of Belle and Sebastian’s Bowlie Weekender, with Mogwai curating in the unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands. Since then the festival has appeared every year and has expanded across the globe continuing to set itself apart from large scale corporate festivals by staying intimate and fan-friendly. The line-ups are chosen by significant bands or artists which results in eclectic events that combine performances by legendary and influential acts with appearances by the latest crop of experimental artists from any (and every) musical genre. The festival has become more successful with every passing year, and ATP events have taken place in the UK, USA, Europe and Australia, with past curators including Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Mike Patton, My Bloody Valentine, Portishead, Sonic Youth, Slint, and Tortoise. Next year ATP will launch a new series of curated city-based events called I'll Be Your Mirror, starting in Tokyo in February.
For ten years ATP has set itself apart from other festivals by embracing seemingly disparate artistic genres, with events featuring art exhibitions, cinema programmes, spoken word performances and stand up comedy. It's been called 'Unforgettable' by Spin and 'the most enjoyable festival experience of our reporter's life' by Pitchfork. It has spawned an acclaimed concert series (Don't Look Back), a record label (ATP Recordings), and the release of a feature length documentary about the festivals from Warp X, titled All Tomorrow’s Parties, out now on DVD.
