Neutral Milk Hotel’s Jeff Mangum is to curate an ATP Festival in the UK this December.
The event takes place at Butlins, Minehead, from 2 to 4 December. This will be the first of two ATP festivals taking place in December at the venue, with the second to be announced later.
So far Mangum, who will play at the event, has lined up:
THE OLIVIA TREMOR CONTROL
YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS
THE MAGIC BAND
THE RAINCOATS performing The Raincoats (debut LP)
A HAWK AND A HACKSAW
THE APPLES IN STEREO
Tickets go on sale this Friday (18 Feb) from See tickets.
A message on the ATP website reads: “After releasing what is now one of the most loved and critically acclaimed albums of the 1990s (In The Aeroplane Over The Sea), Neutral Milk Hotel disbanded before many of those who now love their albums had a chance to see the songs performed live, so Jeff’s much anticipated return to the live stage this year will no doubt be a very special occasion for fans throughout the UK and worldwide.”
