*We are extremely excited to announce the addition of Sufjan Stevens to the ATP-curated Saturday lineup. Stevens, who will be releasing Run Rabbit Run (a re-arrangement of his 2001 album Enjoy Your Rabbit) in October, has not played a US show in over two years, and this is sure to be a special performance.*
All Tomorrow’s Parties (ATP) is happy to announce its return to Kutsher’s Country Club in Monticello, New York for the 2nd annual ATP New York festival. The event will be held Sept 11-13, 2009.
Last year’s festival, co-curated by My Bloody Valentine, was a critical and cultural success with rave reviews from media and fans. This year’s Fest will be co-curated by The Flaming Lips.
Friday will feature a first New York show in a long time by The Jesus Lizard and ATP favourites Iron and Wine. They will join the Don’t Look Back shows also taking place on Friday: The Feelies performing Crazy Rhythms, New York’s finest Suicide performing their first LP, Dirty Three performing Ocean Songs and The Drones performing Wait Long By The River... The evening will be rounded off with the Comedy Stage hosted and curated by the one and only David Cross.
Saturday is curated by ATP and we are happy to announce new additions to the lineup, including Sufjan Stevens, Shellac, Circulatory System, and Grouper. Saturday will also feature Animal Collective and an exclusive performance by Panda Bear. Other confirmed acts include Boss Hog, Deerhunter, Bridezilla, Melvins, Black Dice, Dead Meadow, Autolux, EL-P, Akron/Family, Antipop Consortium, Atlas Sound and the hotly tipped Sleepy Sun.
Sunday is curated by the outlandish Flaming Lips. Every act that plays will perform an exclusive special show, bespoke for this event. New additions to Sunday are Crystal Castles, Super Furry Animals, Boris, and Low Lows, and special sets are expected from all. Also just announced, “Oneida presents the Ocropolis" – where Oneida will transport the impetus, spirit and community of their multidisciplinary studio/performance space, The Ocropolis, to ATP for a full day of improvisation, collaboration, and recording, combined with the astounding Mighty Robot Visuals light crew. Previously announced acts include Boredoms continuing their BOADRUM series, performing with 9 drummers on stage. No Age will perform a whole LP by Husker Du including a special guest vocalist. Deerhoof will perform with special visuals by Martha Colburn.
