Legendary NEW YORK punk pioneers TELEVISION are reforming to play the next ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES festival at CAMBER SANDS HOLIDAY CENTRE on April 6-8, NME.COM can reveal.
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.
