yeah, but that event also had Mercury Rev, The Fall, Liars, Shellac and some others. I'm sure that at least the third day headliner will be someone a bit more "mainstream". I don't think it's entirely artist curated either: the artists are supposed to give the ATP people as big a list of desired bands as they want (probably with particular preferences), then the ATP people get choosing from that. Apparently two curators have asked for Animal Collective and have had them mysteriously vetoed by Barry and co.
