Now the Summer festival season has ended, the world famous All Tomorrow's Parties look forward to their December festival events. This year ATP present the return of Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum to headline and curate one of our two festival weekends at Butlins, Minehead, UK. Tickets are selling fast and are on sale via Seetickets.com, Gigantic.com and Wegottickets.com.

Today we can announce two major additions to the line-up:

PANDA BEAR - Animal Collective's Noah Lennox presents music from his acclaimed latest solo LP Tomboy as well as his previous classic Person Pitch. This is his first UK trip since his sold out London show in early 2010. He will be playing live alongside Sonic Boom (Pete Kember) of Spectrum/Spacemen 3.

THE JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION - one of the most exciting live bands on the planet play a rare UK show: other than a sold out London gig in 2010 this is only their second UK appearance in over 5 years.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, sadly Mike Watt & George Hurley's will be unable to bring their previously announced Minutemen performance to the event.

The line-up so far for the event now looks like this with more to be confirmed...

Jeff Mangum (from Neutral Milk Hotel)
Joanna Newsom
Fleet Foxes
Boredoms
Panda Bear
Yann Tiersen
Thurston Moore
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

ABOUT ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES

All Tomorrow's Parties has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the world for the last ten years. It was founded in the wake of Belle and Sebastian’s Bowlie Weekender, with Mogwai curating in the unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands. Since then the festival has appeared every year and has expanded across the globe continuing to set itself apart from large scale corporate festivals by staying intimate and fan-friendly. The line-ups are chosen by significant bands or artists which results in eclectic events that combine performances by legendary and influential acts with appearances by the latest crop of experimental artists from any (and every) musical genre. The festival has become more successful with every passing year, and ATP events have taken place in the UK, USA, Europe and Australia, with past curators including Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Mike Patton, My Bloody Valentine, Portishead, Sonic Youth, Slint, and Tortoise. This year ATP launches a new series of curated city-based events called I'll Be Your Mirror, starting in Tokyo in February, London in July and most recently announced in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

For ten years ATP has set itself apart from other festivals by embracing seemingly disparate artistic genres, with events featuring art exhibitions, cinema programmes, spoken word performances and stand up comedy. It's been called 'Unforgettable' by Spin and 'the most enjoyable festival experience of our reporter's life' by Pitchfork. It has spawned an acclaimed concert series (Don't Look Back), a record label (ATP Recordings), and the release of a feature length documentary about the festivals from Warp X, titled All Tomorrow’s Parties, out now on DVD.

Gutted about Mike and George play The Minutemen pulling out, but the rest of it is still pretty good.

I was going to come here too and ask if anyone knows of any chalet space for 2, or also if anyone wants to share...

I cant go to this now as i have to go to a wedding on the Sunday.. Who gets married on a Sunday?

Not happy. This will be the first December in 6 years i won't be going to Minehead, and no May ATPs mean it's a least a year until the next one.

At least i have tickets for the London Superchunk and Jeff Mangum shows, which is a small consolation.

It's been postponed until March!

On the plus side, i can probably go now..

On the down side, i'm glad i'm not in the position of having booked travel or anything for this. I can't imagine this sitting very well with people who have..

Superchunk London show still going ahead too, which is a bouns.

I was debating whether I should get Superchunk tickets, as not sure my body could handle 4 nights of gigs in a row, but will definitely get them now. Gutted it's been postponed, any reason as to why?

i presume either Jeff or Butlins can't do it for some reason. an explanation would be nice though, wouldn't it?

Pretty quiet at work today for me, so i just read through the thread on Drowned in sound about it.. General consensus on there seems to think it was poor ticket sales which led to Butlins bumping them out.. Seems to have been replaced with a 90's weekender already. Guess more will become clear once the Jeff Union Chapel shows are confirmed/moved.

I agree though, i think people deserve a decent explanation.
