Nick Cave to curate first Australian ATP
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds are to curate the first Australian incarnation of the All Tomorrow's Parties festival, which is scheduled to take place between January 9 and 18 in Mt. Buller, Sydney and Brisbane.

Artists set to appear include Spiritualized, Fuck Buttons and Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds themselves.

The festival, famed for showcasing obscure bands under the guidance of successful underground artists, has played host to numerous curators including Thurston Moore, Mogwai and The Mars Volta.

The first New York ATP was held last month, curated by My Bloody Valentine.

Previous manifestations of the event are well known for their unique locations. Whilst the British versions of ATP are hosted in Butlin's holiday parks, settings for the first Australian ATP include a remote ski resort and former prison island.
