Deerhunter - Deerhunter To Curate ATP in June 2013
Deerhunter : Deerhunter To Curate ATP in June 2013
18th September 2012

This December The National will be curating All Tomorrow's Parties music festival on its return to its original home at the recently refurbished Pontins holiday camp in Camber Sands. ATP are now announcing the return of their Spring/Summer festivals in the same location with Deerhunter curating one of two weekends, from 21st-23rd June 2013.

ATP had this to say about the event: "Hailing from Atlanta, Deerhunter have also been one of the most exciting up and coming bands in rock music in the last decade - with side projects Atlas Sound from Bradford Cox and Lotus Plaza from Lockett Pundt also grabbing huge acclaim and helping to build their very dedicated fanbase. They are long time ATP regulars (and favourites) and we're very happy to have them head the bill - they will play three different sets, each showcasing a performance of one of their LPs "Cryptograms", "Microcastle" and "Halcyon Digest" in full. There will be an Atlas Sound show, and Deerhunter will also of course be picking the rest of the June festival line-up."

A statement from Deerhunter: "ATP has been a part of our lives as Deerhunter for many years now and it's a great honour to be asked to curate."

The first set of artists chosen by Deerhunter for the event will be confirmed very soon.

Tickets will be on sale from this Thursday here.
