Back at the beginning of the month it was announced that a triumvirate of the most excellent broadly indie-styled bands were to curate and headline a day each at ATP's Nightmare Before Christmas. Now the first curators' picks have been unveiled. Here they are.
Les Savy Fav (headlining and curating December 9) have chosen Archers of Loaf, No Age and Marnie Stern. Battles (who headline and curate December 10) have chosen Flying Lotus, The Psychic Paramount and Walls and Caribou (who headline and curate December 11) have picked The Ex with Getachew Mekuria, Junior Boys and Omar Souleyman.
The first poster/banner/artwork has been designed, too. It's suitably dark. Have a look.
The weekend runs from December 9-11 2011 at Butlins Holiday Centre in Minehead, Zummerzet. We are told the line-up will feature 45 bands and artists playing, which is a good turnout. Obviously there'll be more things to do, as well.
Tickets are already on sale through ATP Festival.com and cost £170pp for room only and £180 for self-catering.
