My Bloody Valentine To Curate ATP Nightmare Before Christmas, Bunch More Old People Confirmed

ATP have confirmed shoegaze forebearers (and seemingly ATP poster children as of late) My Bloody Valentine will be the curators of this year’s Nightmare Before Christmas.  

The party will take place on December 4-6 at Butlin’s in Minehead, England. Kevin Sheilds has already booked  Sonic Youth, De la Soul, Sun Ra Arkestra, EPMD and The Horrors for the bill (seems funny typing all those epic bands and then… The Horrors?). Mike Patton and Melvins were the forces behind last years Nightmare Before Christmas bash last year, so it’s no surprise the festival has booked Dublin’s staple shoegazers, My Bloody Valentine for the gig, in hopes of creating another stellar year of visual and musical mayhem.  

ATP are also giving event goers a special deal on tickets for this years Nightmare Before Christmas party — man, we love recession-specials. Attendees have the opportunity to purchase an early bird special for the event. Everyone who purchases a ticket for seven days until 9 a.m. on April 24 (or until the ticket allotment runs out) will get 20 euros off of their ticket.

  2. Ah man, it’s going to be a sweet party. My Bloody Valentine Rock!

  3. This sounds like a great show. I have seen both Sonic Youth and De La Soul in separate concerts. Seeing them both together on the same venue would be outstanding!

  4. Very interesting read, I can say I did not know that before! by the way does anyone know where i can find a spotify invite?

  5. This sounds like a great show, I think I came here a little bit too late.

  6. Are De La Soul and The Horrors still playing? I’d love to see them both. Think I missed this one but when is the next gig like this please?

  7. I was listening to their stuff this morning, they rock! Not sure it would make appropriate valentines music though :)

  8. Ha ha, no I don’t think that My Bloody Valentine is the best Valentine’s Day music. Powerful stuff though, just checked out a few of their videos. I’ve got to see them live one day!
