The rescheduled lineup for the All Tomorrow's Parties festival next March in Minehead, UK has been announced.  Second-billed, after the curator Jeff Mangum, are none other than The Magnetic Fields!  Along with Mr. Mangum, they will be headlining a night of the festival.

The festival will take place next March 9-11, and you can buy tickets here.  TMF are not well-known for festival appearances (XX Merge a couple years ago being the most recent exception to that rule), but I have reason to believe that this will not be the only date to take place next March.  However, that's all hearsay at this point, so ignore me, folks.


  1. No fucking way. Gasp.

  2. Yeah, it's gonna be great. I generally HATE festivals, but ATP always has the best lineups. This is a particularly inspired one.

  3. Me too. I love ATP. I've only been the once. I went to Camber Sands to see Sleater-Kinney / Yeah Yeah Yeahs / Mudhoney .... all kinds of wonderful music... Vashti, Bert Jansch (RIP) TV On The Radio before they made it big. This one is awesome tho. It's a beautiful lineup and made just so very special by the inclusion of the magical and utterly unique The Magnetic Fields. LOVE.
