This December the world famous All Tomorrow’s Parties music festival returns to its original home – the recently refurbished Pontins holiday camp in Camber Sands – for two sold out festival weekends curated by The National and Shellac. Now we can announce the exciting return of our Spring/Summer festivals in the same location with two wonderful American groups curating- one from the North and the other from the South…
Weekend 1: ATP Curated by TV On The Radio – May 10th-12th 2013
Hailing from Brooklyn and responsible for some of the most mind-blowing, genre-exploding music of the last decade, from their fantastic debut “Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes”, the critical success story of “Return To Cookie Mountain” and recent albums “Dear Science” and “Nine Types Of Light“, ATP are extremely happy to invite TV On The Radio to curate and headline the May festival. The band are well known for their stunning live shows and we’re sure they will be erudite curators. Their event takes place at Pontins, Camber Sands from Friday 10th – Sunday 12th May 2013.
The first set of artists chosen by TV On The Radio for the event will be confirmed soon.
Weekend 2: ATP Curated by Deerhunter – June 21st-23rd 2013
Hailing from Atlanta, Deerhunter have also been one of the most exciting up and coming bands in rock music in the last decade – with side projects Atlas Sound from Bradford Cox and Lotus Plaza from Lockett Pundt also grabbing huge acclaim and helping to build their very dedicated fanbase. They are long time ATP regulars (and favourites) and we’re very happy to have them head the bill – they will play three different sets, each showcasing a performance of one of their LPs “Cryptograms“, “Microcastle” and “Halcyon Digest” in full. There will be an Atlas Sound show, and Deerhunter will also of course be picking the rest of the June festival line-up. Their event takes place at Pontins, Camber Sands from Friday 21st – Sunday 23rd June 2013.
