Year after year ATP hold festivals full of the best bands this toxic world has to offer and this year is certainly no exception. Two new artists have been voted in to play at ‘ATP Fans Strike Back Festival’, one of two weekend events run by All Tomorrow’s Parties, both taking place in May 2009 at Butlins Holiday Resort, Minehead, England. From the 8th – 10th May, The Fans Strike Back weekend will see half of the festival line-up chosen by ATP and the other half voted for by everyone that buys a ticket. The fans definitely have impeccable taste as M83 and Marnie Stern have been added to the already chosen Beirut and Electric Wizard. In addition the bands chosen by ATP so far are: THE JESUS LIZARD / DEVO / SLEEP performing Holy Mountain, selections from Dopesmoker + more / SPIRITUALIZED  / YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS perform Colossal Youth / ANTIPOP CONSORTIUM / GRAILS / SLEEPY SUN / THE CAVE SINGERS / RETRIBUTION GOSPEL CHOIR / HEALTH / SHEARWATER / THE ACORN / THE PINK MOUNTAINTOPS If you’re not going to ‘ATP Fans Strike Back Festival’ then I’d suggest you get your credit crunch butts down to the Breeders curated ATP festival, which takes place a week later (15th – 17th May) So far the lineup looks like this: THE BREEDERS / THROWING MUSES / BON IVER / FOALS / TEENAGE FANCLUB / HOLY FUCK / KIMYA DAWSON / PIT ER PAT / DEERHUNTER / GANG OF FOUR / SHELLAC (House Band) / ZACH HILL / THE SOFT PACK / THE HOLLOYS / STYROFOAM / CSS / SUPERSUCKERS / YANN TIERSEN You can get your mitts on tickets from,,, and
