ATP! ( I hope)

I've been looking forward to going to ATP for so long and it's finally here! This Friday a massive group of us are heading over to Minehead for Nightmare Before Christmas, curated by Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The line-up is amazing, the people we're going with are even more amazing, but I'm so worried that the airport is going to be shut due to the weather! It's closed today until 7pm because of heavy snowfall over the airport, so it's not unreasonable to expect it to be closed on Friday morning when we're due to fly. We're looking at a whole array of alternatives at the moment such as getting a ferry and then a series of buses. Flights from other airports are ridiculously expensive and would also involve paying for trains/buses to those airports. This a total nightmare! I'm going to try and stay positive and focus on the actual festival and hope that the weather will clear in time.

Here's the full line-up. I'm most looking forward to seeing Godspeed (obviously), Neurosis (I'd say they'll put on a spectacular show), Weird Al (just amazing), The Ex, Wolves in the Throne Room, Nomeansno (monkeysmonkeysmonkeys), I've seen both Deerhoof and Oneida in the last year but would really like to see them again, especially Oneida as I hear: "members of Godspeed, Deerhoof, The Dead C, Flower/Corsano Duo, Hallogallo, The Sadies, White Hills will join Oneida to improvise". Tasty. Well, it's clearly a savage line-up, as long as we're there to experience it!



Keep your fingers crossed for us and we might see ye there!
