ATP 2009 line-up details announced

Breeders and fans to curate next year's festivals

ATP 2009 line-up details announced
All Tomorrow's Parties have revealed details of the line-up for their double bash in May.

Week one, which takes place at Butlins Holiday Resort in Minehead from May 8-10 is titled ATP Vs The Fans II - The Fans Strike Back, and gives fans the chance to curate half the line-up.

Acts will be chosen by ATP (already confirmed are DEVO, Sleep, Spiritualized and Grails) and ticket-buyers can also vote for their favourites with only one rule: that the bands cannot have played a UK ATP event before.

Week two takes place at the same venue from May 15-17 and sees The Breeders curate a bill of more than 40 artists. The line-up announced so far includes Throwing Muses, Bon Iver, Teenage Fanclub and Holy Fuck.

The festival has also followed Glastonbury's lead offering a limited deposit scheme for the 2009 events. Fans can pay £50/£60 per person up front for their apartment now, with the remaining amount to be settled in January. See Atpfestival.com for details.

To check the availability of ATP Festival tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/GIGS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
