They say you should give the people what they want. Unfortunately, the people often don’t know what they want, or just want something that is rubbish. Not in the case of the upcoming ATP festival, dubbed ‘The Fans Strike Back’, though.

Like one of the 2007 ATPs, this edition of the festival, which will take place between 8-10 May, will feature line-up half made up of bands picked by the festival organisers and half selected by votes from ticket-buyers. Those smart ticket-buyers have just added CMU favourites M83 and Marnie Stern to their line-up. They join Beirut, Electric Wizard and Future Of The Left.

Also in ATP news, another CMU favourite, Yann Tiersen, has been added to the bill of a second ATP weekend, which is being curated by The Breeders. That will take place between 15-17 May. Both events will take place at Butlins in Minehead.
