Animal Collective To Curate ATP Festival In May 2011

Animal Collective's last album Merriweather Post Pavilion was hailed with universal acclaim; 5 Stars from Uncut, 8/10 from NME and a 9.6 from Pitchfork, who also named it their album of the year and put it in their top 20 albums of the decade. ATP promoter Barry Hogan: "I always wondered what kind of mixtape Animal Collective would put together, so we are really stoked that they are climbing into the curating hot seat at Butlins next May where they will headline and curate the festival that includes the likes of Lee Scratch Perry and Gang Gang Dance from an already eclectic mix of 40+ acts."

  3. I love animal collective, regularly post their songs on my blog. MPP was all I listened to freshman year of college. Smoked way too much weed I think lol. Where is this happening now? Butlins? I couldn't quite derive the location.
