ATP 2010: Curated By Matt Groening @ Butlin’s Holiday Centre, Minehead, UK
This past weekend was the Matt Groening-curated ATP, which went down in Butlins, Minehead, UK. Iggy Pop and Toumani Diabate were the highlights of the first night (along with ATP staples Built To Spill, Broadcast, Liars, and Shonen Knife). Day 2 featured performances from the xx and Boredoms (both bands would place twice, the latter did Boadrum with Zach Hill, Kid Millions, and drummers from Ponytail, DMBQ, and Pit Er Pat), Deerhunter, Danielson, She & Him, Thee Oh Sees, a late night Panda Bear set, among others. The last day seemed to focus on female performers: Juana Molina, the Raincoats, Joanna Newsom, Hope Sandoval, CocoRosie, etc. joined headliners Daniel Johnston and Spiritualized doing all of Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space. Groening last curated ATP in 2003.
We sent photographer Elena Morelli to capture the sights.
