The legendary New York punk outfit can't resist the lure of the Camber Sands crazy golf...
Curated this year by Tortoise, the festival has also added Yo La Tengo, Broadcast and ESG to a bill which already includes Calexico, Femi Kuti, The Sun Ra Arkestra, Company Flow, Cannibal Ox, The Ex, Savath & Savalis, The Sea and Cake and Boards Of Canada.
Barry Hogan, of promoters Foundation , told NME.COM: "I am very pleased to announce that festival co-curators Tortoise have persuaded Television to reform for ATP 2001. Television are the true godfathers of alternative rock. I expect some other major artists to confirm in the coming weeks."
Following the success of the festivals, it's now been decided that Los Angeles' UCLA campus will host a US leg of the event on October 19-21. The curators for the American event are strongly rumoured to be Sonic Youth.
