[pitchfork.com] The folks behind All Tomorrow's Parties, the international festival juggernaut, are throwing themselves a birthday party! December 11-13, the Butlins Holiday Centre in Minehead, England will play host to the Ten Years of ATP Festival, which will celebrate a full decade of Steve Albini whupping drunk fools at poker.
The ATP folks have invited their closest friends to play this shindig, so past ATP curators and ATP recording artists will be on the bill. Right now, the lineup includes Explosions in the Sky, Deerhoof, Shellac, Dirty Three, Tortoise, Melvins, the For Carnation, Papa M, Fuck Buttons, the Drones, Sleepy Sun, Bardo Pond, and Mudhoney, with more bands to be announced.
