This one is a little exciting, as ATP have just announced their second Nightmare before Christmas. It is to be curated by Battles, Les Savy Fav & Caribou, which sounds just about perfect from where I’m standing! Two of the best bands I’ve ever seen at ATP were Les Savy and Caribou, and I’d be interested in seeing what they come up with, in terms of curating. Each band curates one day, which should work out pretty well and cover a good bit of ground in variety of sound.
Les Savy Fav are already responsible for what will most likely become my best gig of 2011. Tim is the most amazing front man I’ve seen since Iggy Pop, and is well worth the trip to minehead by himself.
It is on from the 9th-11th December 2011 at Butlins Holiday Centre, Minehead, and tickets go on sale from Thursday 3rd March at 5pm
The only one of the three curators that I haven’t seen is Battles, so that should be interesting also.
