The bonza musical group All Tomorrow's Parties has cast its net even further by announcing the launch of a festival in Australia to be curated by Nick Cave.

The moustachioed balladeer has already been much involved with the ATP festival with both The Bad Seeds and Grinderman playing Minehead.

The festival, which will take place at the Mt Buller alpine resort in Victoria, will occur over three days from the 9th till the 11th of January next year and will coincide with the release of a new Grinderman album.

As yet no bands have been announced but we at The Quietus will probably start swimming now if some of the following are considered to play or reform.

The Drones

The Scientists

Birthday Party

Radio Birdman

The Saints

The Triffids

AC/DC

The Dirty Three

Grinderman

Bad Seeds

My Disco

Kim Salmon and the Surrealists

Severed Heads

Dead Can Dance
