Following the news that the Jeff Mangum-curated ATP event was to be rescheduled, plenty of people were wondering what the line-up would like when they came to re-announcing it. Well, now we find out as it has just been confirmed that the following bands form the bill - so far - for the event, which takes place next March.
Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel
The Music Tapes
Mike Watt & George Hurley perform the songs of The Minutemen
Scratch Acid Thurston Moore
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Young Marble Giants
Robyn Hitchcock performing I Often Dream Of Trains
The Raincoats performing The Raincoats
The Magic Band
The Olivia Tremor Control
The Apples In Stereo
A Hawk And A Hacksaw performing a new and original soundtrack to Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors
Elephant 6 Holiday Surprise Lost In The Trees
This is not a bad start at all. Unfortunately some bands couldn't make it this time around, and they include Panda Bear, Tinariwen, Superchunk, Group Inerane, The Mountain Goats and Colin Stetson, which is a shame. ATP also inform us that they are hoping to confirm Fleet Foxes, Sun Ra Arkestra and Micachu & The Shapes very shortly.
Next year's Jeff Mangum ATP takes place at Butlins, Minehead from March 9-11. More information on tickets and whatnot can be found here.
