    end of an era 2013

    All Tomorrow’s Parties has announced plans to discontinue its annual installment of holiday festivals with one final event to take place in Camber Sands, UK later this year. The aptly titled End of An Era festival spans two consecutive weekends (Nov. 22th-24 and Nov. 29th-Dec. 1st), each featuring a different lineup.

    Primavera Sound curates weekend one, and they’ve recruited Television to top the bill. The New York alt-rock icons have played sporadically together over the last decade, with a lineup featuring founding members Tom Verlaine and Billy Ficca, Fred Smith, and Jimmy Ripp. For their headlining performance at ATP, they’ll be performing their acclaimed 1977 debut, Marquee Moon, in full.

    Also playing weekend one are Dinosaur Jr. Les Savy Fav, Thurston Moore’s Chelsea Light Moving, Oneohtrix Point Never, Mike Watt, Beak>, múm, The Haxan Cloak, Wolf Eyes, and Eraas.


    Meanwhile, reunited UK alt-rock band Loop is curating and headlining weekend two, marking their first performance since 1991. The lineup includes the original Gilded Eternity-era members Robert Hampson, John Wills, Neil Mackay and Scott Dowson.

    Weekend two’s lineup also includes The Pop Froup, Fennesz, Dirty Beaches, Eaux, and 23 Skidoo.

    Additional acts for both lineups will be revealed in the coming weeks.

    Early-bird tickets for both weekends are now available through the festival’s website.
