Monday 5th March, 2012

Today we can announce the Stage Times for this weekend's ATP Curated by Jeff Mangum festival, as well as the Cinema listings, DJs and details of the Book Club...


Our cinema schedule which is free of charge to all attendees includes 35mm screenings of Spirited Away, Persepolis, Pan's Labyrinth, The Golden Compass, Jan Svankmajer's Alice and Faust and others, see times below for the full list. We are also happy to announce on the Saturday the screening of a group of rare films from Jem Cohen including his excellent Fugazi documentary Instrument, and on Sunday a series of films from Lance Bangs including an excerpt of his as yet unreleased Slint documentary Breadcrumb Trail - Lance will be joining us for a Q&A after the films.

Book Club:

For this event we have asked Jeff Mangum to pick a group of books to recommend to attendees, and you can see the titles Jeff has chosen here. Our friends at Verso ( are helping us run the book club for the event. We will be concentrating on two of the books from Jeff's list.

On Saturday, Adam Harper will be joining us to discuss Silence, by John Cage (Marion Boyars). Adam Harper is the author of Infinite Music: Imagining the Next Millennium of
Human Music-Making (Zer0 Books). He discusses aesthetics and criticism in music, art and life on his blog Rouge’s Foam. He also studies musicology, composes music and has written for the Wire and Dummy magazines. The first few people to attend this session will win a copy of Infinite Music. For a list of possible discussion points click here.

On Sunday, we will focus on One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez (Penguin), led by Stephen Hart. Stephen Hart is Professor of Latin American Film, Literature and
Culture at University College London. He is the author of numerous books on Latin American culture, including the biography Gabriel García Márquez (Reaktion). For a list of possible discussion points click here.


We will have DJ sets throughout the weekend from Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), Justin Spear, Mike McGonigal (Yeti), Declan Allen, Subject DJs, Jamie & Manish, Barry Hogan and ATP DJs.

Without further ado here is the schedule. Please note some venues may not hold the entire festival capacity at once - so please check the stage times and arrive early if you don't want to miss a performance. If venues are full then security will operate on a one in - one out basis.
