Details of next year’s ATP Festivals at Camber Sands in East Sussex have been unveiled.

Weekend 1, which takes place on May 10-12, is being curated by TV On The Radio, with a June 21-23 event being curated by Deerhunter. Both events will take place at Pontins, Camber Sands, instead of Butlins, Minehead. Two winter events – ATP curated by the National and ATP curated by Shellac – take place at Camber Sands after ATP ended its six year relationship with Butlins Minehead following the Jeff Mangum event in May.

Hailing from Brooklyn and responsible for some of the most mind-blowing, genre-exploding music of the last decade, from their fantastic debut “Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes”, the critical success story of “Return To Cookie Mountain” and recent albums “Dear Science” and “Nine Types Of Light”,  TV On The Radio to curate and headline the May festival. The band are well known for their stunning live shows and we’re sure they will be erudite curators. Kyp Malone from TVOTR: “We are extremely honored and excited to be curating ATP! The festival will be a jam! The party will be a success! Rock over London, rock on Camber Sands!” Tunde Adebimpe from TVOTR: “We are so excited to be doing this. We had so much fun playing ATP some years ago that to be able to come back and curate is a dream realized.”

Hailing from Atlanta, Deerhunter have also been one of the most exciting up and coming bands in rock music in the last decade – with side projects Atlas Sound from Bradford Cox and Lotus Plaza from Lockett Pundt also grabbing huge acclaim and helping to build their very dedicated fanbase. They are long time ATP regulars (and favourites) and we’re very happy to have them head the bill – they will play three different sets, each showcasing a performance of one of their LPs “Cryptograms”, “Microcastle” and “Halcyon Digest” in full. There will be an Atlas Sound show, and Deerhunter will also of course be picking the rest of the June festival line-up. They said: “ATP has been a part of our lives as Deerhunter for many years now and it’s a great honour to be asked to curate.”
