Stewart Lee to curate ATP 2016

“Bring bucket, spade, swimwear and an open mind.”

The coolest thing to happen at a Pontins ever, All Tomorrow’s Parties, has booked wonderfully deadpan comedian Stewart Lee as curator for the 2016 lineup.

Lee said of his new appointment:

“Of all the ATPs I’ve attended, the 2001 weekend, when Tortoise curated it and laid American free jazz, European improv noise, alternative country rock, alienating stand-up comedy, ambient electronica, Eighties hardcore, Seventies CBGBs nostalgia, smart-arse post punk, Dutch anarcho-jazz and all manner of unexpected cross-currents on curious young people, remains a pivotal point in my musical education. It’s a great honour to be allowed to attempt something similar. Bring bucket, spade, swimwear and an open mind.”

How exciting.

Crack’s shout at the line-up? Sleaford Mods, Madness and a reunion of Guided by Voices. Put money on it.
