just saw the primavera thread and thought about atp. how many are happening next year?
but there was an indication before that they'd only do one in May, and I would guess only one in December as well.
until it sells out.
there's 2 weekends reserved for ATP in May - if you look at Butlins caravan bookings website. (I was bored).
Tbey definitely said there was only going to be one when the Christmas ones were announced. If that's true then they need to stop treating their customers like idiots.
I AM ANGRY AND ON THE INTERNET
I'm struggling to think of many situations where people might complain about getting MORE opportunities to do something.
it looks like it'll be the weekend of 13-15th May - Butlins have got their own stuff on all the other weekends May.
for the record ATP can put on as many weekends as they like. If they are good I'll go. But if they were making a point of there being 1 weekend on when there are plans for 2 then I think there's something wrong with that, I couldn't care less what folk on here think. In the circumstances I may have been too quick to respond to internet rumours.
I think it was mentioned briefly in an interview, which does =/= a press release saying "HONEST GUYS WE'RE ONLY DOING ONE WE WOULDN'T FAKE YOU OUT LIKE THAT" and then turning around six months later and then saying "LOLLLZZZZ TROLLLERED YOU GUISE TWO TWO TWO"
From their own website.
unless ATP pull out something amazing I'll be going to Bangface though
if it has anything to do with the notwist i am there!
If it has anything to do with Blink 182 I'm there!
the curator might be
IT'S SLEATER KINNEY, INNIT?!!
My mate's dad is a taxi driver in Bideford and he had the bassist from the Cramps in his car this week, obviously on his way up the road to check out chalets.
1. David Bowie?
3. Neil Young
4. Arcade Fire
5. A video will of Steven Wells.
If not, i don't care!
i call GBV
I really want to go to another one if the line up is right, (didn't fancy either of the december ones much). Ideally, I'd like them to recreate the Matt Groening one I couldn't make, but I'd settle for anything danceable and not-post-rock.
was made on 7 October 2009, with the Groening ATP announced the week after. So by this time last year we knew both curators (and I think Pavement weekend might already have sold out). So a forthcoming announcement wouldn't be surprising at this point in time, though I'm all in favour of a later announcement because I could do with not wanting to spend more money right now! Best would be if they announced the May festival(s) after the December festival(s), just from an excitement point of view, though obviously that doesn't take into account the organisation considerations.
with your face like a hard-boiled bollock
I think Bert and Ernie would be a better call.
I'm giving it a miss this year regardless of how many they put on*.
*Unless it's someone good. Or someone invites me to share a chalet. Or if it looks like everyone else is going.
Fingers are crossed . . .
would be the worst thing ever.
And shitloads of vegan stalls.
cue The Fall and Guided By Voices playing..
wouldn't be nearly cash-friendly enough tho (i would've thought)
would be him delivering a sermon about why he is underappreciated by the music industry.
But you would want him added to one where it had already sold out to avoid it being full of mental Mozfans.
it does have the advantage of ensuring that Morrissey will never play there.
Would be aces.
...are The Dutchess & The Duke still playing Bowlie? I know they've split, but I've no idea if they're still playing their remaining dates as farewell shows. They're still listed on the ATP site as being on the line-up.
Please book Idlewild's 100 Broken Windows show for Bowlie as well, cheers!
and onsale Friday.
membership scheme - seen this? £25 for a key ring, some old alexander tucker cds gathering dust in the ATP warehouse, 2 for 1 on gigs they can't shift tickets for (release the bats) and future pre-sale links. hmmmm!!!!
