All Tomorrow's Parties have announced that their annual December festival, this year the three day event at Butlins, Minehead will be curated & headlined by Cincinnati, Ohio's THE NATIONAL - performing their only UK show of 2012.
Since their formation in 1999, The National have grown organically from indie cult heroes in their early years, to creating truly stunning LPs such as the amazing Alligator and Boxer, and more recently with the success of High Violet deservedly achieving crossover success to become one of the most acclaimed bands on the planet.
Much of this success is based on their incredible live shows - ATP are very excited that the band have accepted our invitation to headline and to curate an exciting supporting bill featuring many of their favourite artists.
The confirmed line-up to date:
Sharon Van Etten
My Brightest Diamond
Dark Dark Dark
Buke and Gase
In total the line-up will feature 40 live acts playing across the weekend on three indoor stages with a total festival capacity of just 5500 people.
The event will also feature DJs until late, Cinema chosen by The National, Book Club curated by The National, and much more!
All tickets include accommodation in private apartments.
