    …with more curators, recording artists and ATP favourites to be announced! Tickets for this special event will be priced at £160 per person for room only accommodation and £170 per person for self-catering. Please note though that we are offering a limited number of apartments at a discounted price.

    All Tomorrow’s Parties has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the world for the last ten years. It was founded in the wake of Belle and Sebastian’s Bowlie Weekender, with Mogwai curating in the unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands. Since then the festival has appeared every year and has expanded across the globe continuing to set itself apart from large scale corporate festivals by staying intimate and fan-friendly. The line-ups are chosen by significant bands or artists which results in eclectic events that combine performances by legendary and influential acts with appearances by the latest crop of experimental artists from any (and every) musical genre.

    The festival has become more successful with every passing year, and ATP events have taken place in the UK, USA, Europe and Australia, with past curators including Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Mike Patton, My Bloody Valentine, Portishead, Sonic Youth, Slint, Tortoise and Simpsons’ creator Matt Groening. In 2007 and again in 2009 ATP even allowed festival-goers to pick half the line-up by organising a voting process for all ticketholders.

    For ten years ATP has set itself apart from other festivals by embracing seemingly disparate artistic genres, with events featuring art exhibitions, cinema programmes, spoken word performances and stand up comedy. It’s been called ‘Unforgettable’ by Spin and ‘the most enjoyable festival experience of our reporter’s life’ by Pitchfork. It has spawned an acclaimed concert series (Don’t Look Back), a record label (ATP Recordings), and the release of a feature length documentary about the festivals from Warp X, titled All Tomorrow’s Parties out 21 Sept 2009. The film is a semi-found multi media bricolage shot by over two hundred filmmakers, fans and musicians over the festival’s recent history, with key contributions from co-director Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) and cinematographer Vincent Moon (The Take Away Shows, Arcade Fire). For more information and the trailer visit http://www.ourtrueintent.com Look out for the soundtrack to the film, out on ATP Recordings, Autumn 2009.

    :shock: I agree. In the past, when I’ve gone to a festival, I’ve considered having three bands that I like across the whole event to be a decent turnout. The lineup for this and NBC is just too good. I’m can see myself desperately scouring Ebay in November for tickets. :roll:

    J Mascis And The Fog a second weekend in Europe is fantastic but even as a huge fan I can’t afford to get these expensive tickets for Minehead. Last time I saw them in Berlin in December 2000 and it was awesome. Afterwards I spoke to M. Watt and it was a very special evening for me. I hope there will be some more extra dates in December, hopefully in Berlin again.

    You might have luck as I’ve heard that J usually spends Christmas time in Berlin with his wife Louisa’s family. I’m hoping for some European club dates, too (Germany/Belgium/Netherlands).

    Yeah, last time I missed it when he played around Christmas time in Berlin.

    This was at Festsaal Kreuzberg : J MASCIS, PETER NOLAN, PHILIPP VIRUS & SCHNEIDER TM LIVE

    you can see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hh1244NsJM

    Fingers crossed J & the Fog will do it. Or supporting Sonic Youth on the 21st of October 2009 at Columbiahalle would be brilliant, but this is just a dream. After ATP 2006 J supported Sonic Youth as well and it was great.

    Someone really should. And if I remember correctly his name is your boyfriend.

    Or, when her boyfriend takes her to this spectacle, she can ask Murph for a ride in his.
