Coachella isn’t the only music event already deep into planning for next year’s festivities. As already particularity evident, the U.K. based All Tomorrow’s Parties has already set itself up for one hell of a 2010, having tapped none other than the recently reunited Pavement and Simpsons creator Matt Gorening to serve as curators. The former revealed its first few selections a little while back, while he latter offered his first round of choices just yesterday (Nov. 18). So, who’d Mr. Groening pick? The Raincoats, Toumani Diabate, Danielson, James Blackshaw, Anni Rossi, and Viv Albertine’s Limerence (formerly of The Slits) have all been tapped to appear at Weekend One of ATP, set to take place from May 7-9 in Minehead, UK. Plus, the Japanese noise rock outfit known as Boredoms will be performing Boadrum – 9 Drummer Show.

A few months and a plane ride across the Atlantic later, ATP’s New York incarnation, ATP New York, will return to Monticello, NY for its third edition. This year’s festivities will go down from September 3-5 (Labor Day Weekend!) and, as we learned today, will include the four following acts performing the four following albums:

The recently reunited Iggy & the Stooges performing Raw Power, Mudhoney performing Superfuzz Bigmuff, Scientists performing Blood Red River, and the also recently reunited Sleep performing Holy Mountain.

Of course, plenty acts for both events are still forthcoming. Tickets for All Tomorrow’s Parties are on sale here.
