All Tomorrow's Parties recently announced that Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel) will be performing and curating one of the two festival weekends of their December festivities at Butlins, Minehead. In addition to ATP, Jeff will also be playing select dates on the east coast this fall.
As well as headlining ATP, Mangum will choose around 40 acts to play across the weekend on three indoor stages with a total festival capacity of around 5500 people. Mangum will perform more than once in the more intimate Centre Stage venue, although entry to only one show is guaranteed - he will be performing a solo acoustic set.
After releasing what is now one of the most loved and critically acclaimed albums of the 1990s (In The Aeroplane Over The Sea), Neutral Milk Hotel disbanded before many of those who now love their albums had a chance to see the songs performed live, so Jeff's much anticipated return to the live stage this year will no doubt be a very special occasion for fans throughout the UK and worldwide.
Here's a first look at the line-up as chosen by Jeff Mangum which already features a number of much loved performers/groups:
JEFF MANGUM (Neutral Milk Hotel)
THE OLIVIA TREMOR CONTROL
YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS
THE MAGIC BAND
THE RAINCOATS performing The Raincoats (debut LP)
A HAWK AND A HACKSAW
THE APPLES IN STEREO
