ATP Weekend 2: Best Line-up EVER?
As another quartet of bands are added to the second weekend, it's just getting better and better...
This year's double-weekended 'United Sounds of ATP' event made us all smile when the first six curators were announced, the likes of The Shins, Sleater-Kinney, Mudhoney and Devendra Banhart choosing the bands for each day and programming a selection of television piped into all the chalets across the site.
The line-up for the second weekend has improved even further today, with the news that Broken Social Scene, Boredoms, The Lilys and the Brian Jonestown Massacre.
The second weekend (May 19th-21st) now shapes up as such:
DINOSAUR JR Dead Meadow, Bevis Frond, Broken Social Scene, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Lilys
SLEATER KINNEY The Gossip, David Cross (MC), Spoon, The Boredoms
THE SHINS New Pornographers, The Decemberists, Clinic, Big Business
NB: The Lilys playing are the same band who recorded the awesome 'Nanny in Manhattan', which featured on a Levi's advert a good 7/8 years ago. It still holds the record for the shortest ever top-40 single, clocking in at 1min 57secs. Word.
