Deerhunter and TV on the Radio Curate 2013 ATP Festivals

By September 19, 2012

Follow me on:

All Tomorrow's Parties have announced twin ATP festivals for May and June 2013, to be curated by American indie heavy-hitters TV on the Radio and Deerhunter. The TVOTR ATP will be held from May 10 to 12; the Deerhunter fest will be on from June 21-23. Each will take place at the Pontins holiday park in Camber Sands.

"We are so excited to be doing this," says TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone. "We had so much fun playing ATP some years ago that to be able to come back and curate is a dream realized."

Deerhunter will be making their ATP an extra-special event, headlining each night playing a different album from their back-catalog: first Cryptograms, then Microcastle, then Halcyon Digest, as if staging an artist's retrospective. There'll also be a performance from Bradford Cox's other band, Atlas Sound; and it would surprise me much if Lockett Pundt's project, Lotus Plaza, also turned up on the bill.

Tickets for the TV on the Radio ATP and the Deerhunter ATP are on sale as of Thursday; more details at the ATP website.
