As you know, Animal Collective are climbing into the curating hot seat at Butlins where they will headline and chose from amongst their collaborators and influences to bring together an eclectic and mind-expanding mixture of live music. This will be our only Minehead festival this May.
Today we're happy to be able to confirm another group of additions chosen by the curators for their line-up - one of the most eclectic and experimental ATP has ever seen! The list is headed by avant garde film/music legend Tony Conrad, as well as three of the most acclaimed experimental acts of the last few years: Grouper, Actress (#1 Album Of Year 2010, The Wire) and Oneohtrix Point Never (#2 Album Of Year, The Wire). The excellent Kurt Vile who releases a stunning new album this month will also perform, plus there's more including a rare chance to see two of Mali's best live acts in Khaira Arby and Super Khoumeissa.
Animal Collective will play two headline sets in the Centre Stage venue - anyone that does not get in on the first night (or chooses not to see them on that night) can get a wristband to guarantee entry for the second performance.
Here is the full list of new additions...
