Following on from the sell out of The National's event, ATP bring back long-running associates to curate the second of their Christmas festivals this year

All Tomorrow's Parties have announced that they will host a second festival in December this year, in the wake of them moving their The National-curated weekend back to Camber Sands and its subsequent sell-out. This year's Nightmare Before Christmas will be curated by Shellac (or to give them their full stated title, Shellac Of North America). One of ATP's longest running associates - they were among the artists to curate the festival in its early years, and regularly play at its events, leading them to be dubbed ATP's 'house band' - they're a bloody good band to boot, and this festival will mark their 20th anniversary as a musical unit.

The festival hasn't announced any more names as of yet but we'll keep you posted on any more news as it comes. It takes place from November 30th to December 2nd 2012, and tickets will be available from tomorrow morning via the ATP website.
