I’d bet some damn good money you’re still freaking out over Jeff Mangum’s 2012 tour announcement. I sure am. Try to cool your jets for a second, though, because ATP has just confirmed the lineup for the recently rescheduled Jeff Mangum-curated ATP Festival in Butlins Holiday Centre, Minehead, UK. Headliners include Jeff Mangum (obviously), as well as Joanna Newsom and The Magnetic Fields. And even though Panda Bear, Tinariwen, Superchunk, Group Inerane, The Mountain Goats, and Colin Stetson won’t be able to make the new dates, Versus, The Music Tapes, Group Doueh, and Mike Watt & George Hurley will. ATP also plans to add more artists — they’re hoping to confirm Fleet Foxes, Sun Ra Arkestra, and Micachu and the Shapes soon. Check out the festival website for the full lineup.
If you already purchased tickets for the original dates, don’t worry, those will still be valid in March. However, if you’re still hoping to snag tickets, ATP is offering a limited number of installment tickets as well as family tickets. I’m not sure how much fun you’d have with your family, though, considering that your mom drinks until she’s no longer speaking and your dad dreams of all the different ways to die.
