Nightmare Before Christmas

Critics' choice
You know the score by now: a hugely influential figure from the indie underground agrees to headline and curate a weekend of bands at a windswept Butlins, except this year ATP have ended their contract with Butlins and shoved over to Pontins, where super-producer Steve Albini's crew, Shellac, will curate the weekend's entertainment. As well as their clanging, metallic yet ineffably groovy punk rock, there will be a slew of other bands announced, so check back soon for more info.
