Hi there! Just a quick one here to say that much the admir'd Joanna Newsom has been confirmed to play the Matt Groening-curated ATP festival, which takes place in May this year, at Butlin's, Minehead. Cue moaning of people who went and bought ATP Pavement tickets and NOT MG ones.
Let's not go over the top just yet. Line-up now looks like this:
She & Him
Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions:
The Tiger Lillies:
The Fresh And Onlys
Iggy & The Stooges
Built To Spill
James Chance and Les Contortions
Thee Oh Sees
Konono N°1 Panda Bear
Amadou & Mariam
Viv Albertine's Limerence
The weekend takes place at Butlins, Minehead from May 7-9, and you can get your tickets from See Tickets, for either £170 or £160, depending on what sort of option you choose. You should know the deal by now.
The Newsom also plays a couple of shows at the Royal Festival Hall with Roy Harper, and releases her new record, Have One On Me, on March 1 through Domino in the UK.
