ATP to fill Butlins with array of folk stars

The All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival is set to welcome a thoroughly eclectic mix of bands to this summer’s two weekend extravaganza in Minehead, including a number of acts that are firm favourites of FFS.

The festival will take place on two consecutive weekends at the start of May, and among the thoroughly exciting list of acts for the weekend of the 8th are Shearwater, The Acorn and Beirut.  The following weekend, curated by The Breeders, includes Bon Iver, Kimya Dawson and Deerhunter on its lovely line up.

So that’s sea, sand, 40+ acts per weekend, DJ sets to follow, a pop quiz, bingo, cinema and television chosen by ATP and The Fans.  Quite the weekend for those who fancy Butlins sans redcoats.
