buying my tickets tonight when i get back from work. i am so THERE IN A FUCKING CHALET ROCKING IN YOUR FACE!
I don't have any money, LOLZ.
ATP1 and buggered if I can stretch financially to two ATPs in a month.
this upsets me greatly.
I might get 'I HEART ATP WEEKEND 2' tattooed on my face.
but I could be persuaded...
let me swap my ATP1 tickets for ATP2 tickets last year.
after much soul searching I am going to go to this as long as the tickets haven't sold out by the beginning of december
Super Furry Animals
TV On The Radio
Robert Pollard (like that would happen)
Tom Waits (again, slightly unlikely but we HAVE TO TRY)
I am going to vot for Tom Waits too, you never know.
Yo La Tengo
The Apples In Stereo
Mates of State
How many threads do we need on this? Two in the music board and the original on the festival board.
people are excited
they're feigning interest. they really just want to wait for the next Guilfest line-up but hiding the fact behind this facade. Its pathetic really. I kiss my teeth at thee.
Guilfest line up is Paul Weller, Joan Armatrading and Status Quo
Then why the hell are we talking about ATP then? joan Armatrading? Fuck yeah!
you never ever know. he toured america last year just because he had to go pick up a used car in the south.
which i'm not this time,
Lightning Bolt (for a drunken laugh)
Tilly & The Wall
TV on The Radio
Broken Social Scene
of last years line-up - I think I want a bit of a change.
Do Make Say Think
are on hiatus aren't they?
whether this is the sort of event that could persuade some "on hiatus" bands to get back together as a one-off. I'm thinking here specifically of Drive Like Jehu...
to make up for my disappointment last year. Also, Iron & Wine - there's only one of him, so less to negotiate.
...for tickets to sell out? Need time to rally the troops first.
Except I spell Phils name properly.
Gang Gang Dance
Olivia Tremor Control / Circulatory System
Wu Tang Clan. Or maybe just Ghost.
It obviously makes no difference.
you have forgotten the best live act of all time.......
LES SAVY FAV!!!!!!!!!!!!
could work out crap, could be reaaally good. some of the confirmed stuff is ACE already, and most people can enjoy a good festival despite bad lineups (which i'm sure this wont be!)
and so far, this doesn't really interest me at all. it's largely bands that seem to tour a lot anyway.
with a voting system, there's going to be virtually zero obscurity or surprises, and to me the whole magic of ATP is that you get oddities like Negative Approach or The Dead C play, or you discover countless new bands you'd never heard of because someone else was picking them.
i think ATP should really go for the opposite direction and downplay the curator, whilst still having one: why does the curator have to headline? sometimes lesser-known musicians have the best taste.
i'd much rather have a curator dictating to me rather than for the same old bands playing again because by and large, when you get a vote, the same more well known acts will always get picked. whatever happened to discovery?
So there'll still be plenty of variation and surprises. I won't be going to this one, mostly for the same reasons as you, but alot of people will go and enjoy it so whats the problem? So far the Dirty Three have picked out a few interesting obscurities for their weekend so I don't think this spells the end for diverse & interesting ATPs.
and i hope that i'm pleasantly surprised by the lineup for this one, although it'll probably be long sold out by then :\
i'd just love to see someone with great taste that isn't necessarily in a really big band to pick a bill for ATP as there's so much potential there.
bah, humbug, etc.
Jake & Dinos Chapman curated what looked to be an awesome ATP. I went to the Gallow one and he just played for half and hour in the afternoon and all the other bands were amazing. At that ATP alone I discovered Gang Gang Dance, Afrirampo & Majick Markers before even UTR had put them on.
they haven't done it in a fair while, which makes me think that they might never do it at the new site.
prove me wrong, atp!!!!!!!
the fact is it depends on what you want. It will be a best of with bands everyone has heard of. But that will be AMAZING. It'll just be like a really really good version of a regular festival.
If you want underground bands to discover you have all the other ATPs ever for you. It'll be a good change.
