Pavement to dominate All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in England

As previously reported, Pavement will reunite and tour next year. Their dates at New York City’s Central Park were announced last month, but now there’s news that Pavement will both headline AND curate the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in Minehead, England May 14-16.

The festival expanded to the U.S. in 2002 and earlier this year debuted in Australia. So far, the only other announced ATP festival will take place May 7-9 and have another curator.

I went to an All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in 2002 at UCLA. My buddy asked me to go on a whim and I agreed. I wish I had known more about the bands at the time as I just went to get out of the house. Sonic Youth and Stereolab played that night. Yep. Now I listen to those two bands all the time.

Next year belongs to Pavement.
