aaamusic | On 04, Aug 2010
To help conclude our yearlong celebrations of 10 Years of ATP, GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR will be the curators of our Weekend 1 Nightmare Before Christmas festival this December. The festival weekend will run from the 3rd-5th December at Butlins Holiday Centre, Minehead featuring around 40 bands picked by Godspeed You! Black Emperor, who will also perform. Today we can confirm the additions of:
ONEIDA presents THE OCROPOLIS
HANGED with TONY CONRAD
THEE OH SEES
LAND OF KUSH
The Ocropolis is cult New York rock band Oneida’s multidisciplinary studio/performance space in Williamsburg Brooklyn. Built by Oneida and their friends in 2005, this studio has quickly become a legendary source of recordings by Black Dice, Growing, Sightings, Trans Am, Psychic Ills and of course Oneida – it has also played host to some intimate Oneida performances over the past years. For a special all-day event, Oneida is transporting the impetus, spirit and community of the Ocropolis to Minehead for a full day of improvisation, collaboration, and recording which the festival attendees can witness first hand. Oneida will perform continuously throughout the day, sometimes with guests from the rich array of musicians also performing in the festival, sometimes alone and mostly improvised.
Oneida previously presented the Ocropolis at ATP New York 2009 where they played for around 10 hours and finished with a headline set of their recorded material. Throughout the day they collaborated with artists including members of The Flaming Lips, Akron Family, Boredoms, No Neck Blues Band, Tall Firs, Zach Hill of Hella and many more, and no doubt at Nightmare Before Christmas many other artists on the festival line-up will be featured.
The current festival line-up looks like this:
