ATP are extremely excited to announce our annual December festival, this year the three day event at Butlins, Minehead will be curated & headlined by Cincinnati, Ohio’s THE NATIONAL – performing their only UK show of 2012.

Since their formation in 1999, The National have grown organically from indie cult heroes in their early years, to creating truly stunning LPs such as the amazing Alligator and Boxer, and more recently with the success of High Violet deservedly achieving crossover success to become one of the most acclaimed bands on the planet. Much of this success is based on their incredible live shows – ATP are very excited that the band have accepted our invitation to headline and to curate an exciting supporting bill featuring many of their favourite artists.
