Since All Tomorrow’s Parties (ATP) moved to Butlins Minehead five year’s ago, it’s gone from strength to strength. There are now three or four ATP festivals in Somerset every year with some equally awesome offerings as far afield as Japan and the US. What sets ATP apart from the rest (apart from the fact it’s held in Butlins, rather than some sopping wet field in the countryside – meaning beds, showers and flushing toilets over roll mats, deodorant and portable toilets!) is how the festivals are curated by some of the world’s most respected musicians. First up this year is ATP curated by Animal Collective on May 13-15. Animal Collective will play two headline sets in the Centre Stage venue – anyone that does not get in on the first night (or chooses not to see them on that night) can get a wristband to guarantee entry for the second performance. Other acts include Big Boi (Outkast), Beach House, Lee Scratch Perry, Meat Puppets, Beach House and Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti. Avant garde film/music legend Tony Conrad is one of the most recently confirmed acts to join the line up, as well as three of the most acclaimed experimental acts of the last few years: Grouper, Actress and Oneohtrix Point Never. The excellent Kurt Vile who releases a stunning new album this month will also perform, plus there’s more including a rare chance to see two of Mali’s best live acts in Khaira Arby and Super Khoumeissa. Tickets start at £160 from www.atpfestival.com but we’ve teamed up with the organisers to offer you and three friends a four berth chalet for the festival with wristbands granting you access to see the ever-growing list of awesome bands selected by Animal Collective.
