Animal Collective have been given the nod to curate ATP in Minehead, from May 13th to 15th. Not my favorite choice in recent years, while I do like their music, they are a bit boring live. There’s very little interaction with the crowd, and they take it all a bit too seriously for my liking.
Surprisingly, there’s quite a full line up announced here, with Gang Gang Dance, Lee Scratch Perry, Ariel Pink, the Meat Puppets and the Frogs, among others. I’m not sure whether its grabbing my attention as much as the last few have. I might wait until they announce their second weekend before I make my decision. What do others think of it?
Tickets go on sale on Friday.
