ATP Fans Want Sufjan, Breeders Want Foals

More news from planet ATP this week, the festival heads have announced that Sufjan Stevens along with My Bloody Valentine are the two most wanted artists to play at The Fans Strike Back festival in Minehead next year.

The idea is that every week the ATP site will post the top twenty bands most wanted by the fans and the top two are asked. This week it was Sufjan Stevens and so, ATP will go ahead and ask Sufjan to play, it's as simple as that. If said artist/s in the top two can't make it, the next two in the list are then asked.

Along with news about The Fans Strike Back festival, ATP also announced news on their ATP: Curator festival next May. The Breeders are set to curate and have grabbed Foals, Zach Hill, The Holloys and The Soft Pack to join the likes of Bon Iver, Deerhunter, Holy Fuck and festival house band Shellac.

If that's not enough exciting music news to induce a coma, i don't know what is.
