With ATP's Deerhunter-curated weekend - their last ever UK summertime holiday camp festival - we thought it'd behoove us to shine a light on some of the less familiar names on the bill. Obviously Steve Reich, Tom Tom Club, Dan Deacon et al are unmissable, and Deerhunter themselves have grown into a formidable live krautprogpunk monstrousity that you really do need to see.

Classic melodic post punk band lead by the founding guitarist of The Fall, Martin Bramah.
CAVERN OF ANTI-MATTER
Tim Gane of Stereolab's new, motorik derived project.
Wryly lovely folk, beloved of Cat Power, Devendra Banhart and Calexico. Hopefully on early on Sunday to restore any ravaged souls.
