Following yesterday’s news that ATP Festival will return next year to Pontins, Camber Sands, it has been announced this morning that the spring event will be curated by TV On The Radio (10th – 12th May) and Deerhunter (21st – 23rd June).
Kyp Malone from TV On The Radio comments: “We are extremely honored and excited to be curating ATP! The festival will be a jam! The party will be a success! Rock over London, rock on Camber Sands!,” whilst the band’s Tunde Adebimpe adds: “We are so excited to be doing this. We had so much fun playing ATP some years ago that to be able to come back and curate is a dream realized.”
The first set of artists will be confirmed shortly, whilst tickets will go on sale at 10am on Thursday, 20th September. Visit ATPFestival.com for more information. In the meantime, there’s also going to be an ATP event this December, curated by Shellac. Playing that leg will be the likes of Neurosis, Mono, Melt Banana, Wire, Prinzhorn Dance School, Mission of Burma, Oxbow and Bottomless Pit.
