ATP Concerts have announced their annual December festival, to take place in Butlins, Minehead. This year’s festival will be curated and headlined by Cincinnati indie rockers The National. Check out an initial festival lineup after the jump.

The festival was founded by Barry Hogan in 1999 with a namesake from The Velvet Underground’s track “All Tomorrow’s Parties.” Festival organizers have made a point of slating groups that fit the post-rock, avant-garde and underground hip hop alongside more traditional sets.

The festival is also marked for its intimate setting and sponsorship-free status, allowing fans and artists to mix in the same accommodations. Obviously, this sets All Tomorrow’s Parties apart from larger, more corporate UK festivals like Reading and Glastonbury.

Tickets sales began at 2pm today. Click here or here for more information on tickets and housing options.
