ATP New York 2010 taps Jim Jarmusch to curate

on February 12, 2010, 11:56am

This year, ATP celebrate its 10 year birthday with one hell of a birthday party — the 2010 edition of ATP New York. And as finally announced today, the lineup for the Labor Day Weekend bash is as stellar and ecelectic as ever.

For one, ATP New York has handed over the reigns to Jim Jarmusch, the legendary indie filmmaker whose resume results in a rather lengthy Wikipedia entry. The 57-year-old Akron, OH native, who has the task of following up 2009 curators, The Flaming Lips, will hand pick the Sunday portion of ATP. So far, that lineup includes Raekwon, Girls, Fucked Up, Vivian Girls, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Wooden Shjips, and The Black Angels.

In the 48 hours prior Sunday, many others will perform at Kutsher’s Country Club in Monticello, NY. The previously announced Stooges (performing Raw Power), Sleep (performing Holy Mountain), Mudhoney (performing Superfuzz Bigmuff + Early Singles), and The Scientists (performing Blood Red River) will kick things off on Friday. Then, on Saturday, the likes of Sonic Youth, Explosions in the Sky, Fuck Buttons, The Breeders, The Books, Papa M, and Apse will entertain the lucky masses.

Many more artists are still to be announced. Plus, all three days will also feature DJs and movies!

Festival tickets are priced at $250 + booking fee for the weekend. Friday day tickets are priced at $110 + booking fee. Saturday day tickets are priced at $120 + booking fee. Sunday day tickets will be available in March. May we direct your attention to atpfestival.com for more ticket purchasing and more information. You better hurry, however. Total capacity is limited to 3,000 after all!
