Jeff Mangum to curate ATP UK December 2011 and play live solo shows

The frontman from Neutral Milk Hotel confirms that he will curate the first ATP December instalment and play a live show at the event.

It’s been confirmed last month that Neutral Milk Hotel main man Jeff Mangum would play a set at the Portishead-curated All Tomorrow’s Party I’ll Be Your Mirror Festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey on 30th September. What comes next is a Mangum-curated-and-headlining ATP festival at Butlins Holiday Centre in Minehead taking place from 2nd to 4th December. Mangum will select more than 40 acts for the festival, and play a solo acoustic set at the festival’s Centre Stage venue. So far, confirmed acts include Superchunk, the Olivia Tremor Control, Young Marble Giants, Tinariwen, the Apples in Stereo, the Magic Band, and A Hawk and a Hacksaw. Raincoats will play their 1979 self-titled debut album in full. Tickets will go on sale on 18th February 9am.
