Mangum

"ATP Concerts are very excited to present the return of Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum to headline and curate one of two festival weekends planned for December 2011 at Butlins, Minehead. After releasing what is now one of the most loved and critically acclaimed albums of the 1990s (In The Aeroplane Over The Sea), Neutral Milk Hotel disbanded before many of those who now love their albums had a chance to see the songs performed live, so Jeff's much anticipated return to the live stage this year will no doubt be a very special occasion for fans throughout the UK and worldwide.

As well as headlining, Mangum will choose around 40 acts to play across the weekend on three indoor stages with a total festival capacity of around 5500 people. Mangum will perform more than once in the more intimate Centre Stage venue, although entry to only one show is guaranteed - he will be performing a solo acoustic set."

Ok, so Jeff is playing two Wordless Music shows in September followed by two NJ Portishead ATP-related shows at the end of September and the beginning of October (both sold out), and now at least two shows at his very own ATP in the UK in December. More shows are sure to come.

Jeff's initial UK lineup (listed below) includes A Hawk and A Hacksaw who (also contain a Neutral Milk Hotel member and) are also on the lineup with Jeff in NJ.

The full initial UK ATP lineup and more details below...

EARLY BIRD SPECIALS + GENERAL ON SALE

We are offering a small amount of early bird tickets at a £20 per person discount (£150pp room only and £160pp self catering). These will be available until Friday 25th February (unless they run out first). Also available will be a batch of early bird tickets at a £10 per person discount (early bird £160pp room only, £170pp self catering). These will be available until the following Friday 4th March (unless they run out first).

INSTALMENT TICKETS

ATP will again be running a deposit scheme for the festivals to make it easier for some people to pay. We are offering a limited number of 4 berth apartments, both room-only and self-catering to be paid for with a deposit upfront, and the remaining amount to be paid by the end of August. Both come with a booking fee of £7.50 per person (£30 per apartment). These apartments will be sold at full price; £170 per person room only or £180 per person self catered.

People who would like to hold a 4 berth room only, must pay a deposit of £70 per person, (£280 for the apartment). The remaining £107.50pp each (£430 for the apartment) must be paid by August 31st.

People who would like to hold a 4 berth self catering, must pay a deposit of £80 per person, (£320 for the apartment). The remaining £107.50pp each (£430 for the apartment) must be paid by August 31st .

As we will be holding the apartments for you, all deposits will be non-refundable, so please only apply if you are sure you can pay the remaining amount when it is due in August. If you are able to pay through a normal ticket agency upfront for your whole apartment, then please do so and leave the deposit scheme for those people who find it harder to get the full amount together in one go.

You will be required to pay both instalments by either Paypal or cheque. Please email deposit(at)atpfestival.com with MANGUM DEPOSIT in the email subject line if you would like to take part in the deposit scheme. Please include: your name, address, which type of room you want (room only or self catering) and which payment method you would like to use (paypal or cheque). You will then be given details of how to pay by your chosen method. Chalets will be granted on a first come first served basis so please try to pay quickly once we have given you the details so that you don't miss out (therefore we recommend Paypal over Cheque).

as James Murphy says....and it keeps on coming and it keeps on coming till

NYC Jeff Magnum shows better be at Town Hall or Beacon!

No Radio City or United Palace Bowery Presents!~

Any guesses here......

If trends say anything, I don't expect Radio City or United Palace. All the venues have been artsy, museum/gallery, non-commercial theatre types.

Wow, that is a pretty cool E6-centric lineup.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 10:21 AM

lineup is AMAZING

Posted by stefan urquelle | February 16, 2011 10:22 AM

you all missed your chance to see in him nyc when the e6 holiday surprise tours sold out.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 10:23 AM

he isn't playing at Holiday Surprise this year... he made a statement on E6 Townhall about it..

the raincoats!!!

i like the UK's use of "expiry" rather than the boring-sounding "expiration date". i had the pleasure of reading that for both purchasing mangum tickets and pre-ordering king of limbs.

Posted by stefan urquelle | February 16, 2011 10:30 AM

Doubt ATP NJ will get this lineup since it's curated by Portishead, not Mangum. Olivia Tremor Control would be awesome to see though!!

@10:38...glad you are amused, seems pretty straight forward...are you 12 years old?

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 10:32 AM

Can't he just announce a full tour already, it seems like its bound to happen

Maybe he wants to play his music for his fans and wants to be paid to do so.. what a concept.

...Shouldn't you be making my latte right now anyway ?

I don't know what the big deal is. It'll just be him and an acoustic guitar. Some squirrly looking hipsters will be talking the entire time and taking pictures with their iPhones, and you'll all be annoyed by them for ruining your precious NMH experience.

I would never want to see Mangum in New York. Everyone would go to the show but nobody would be there.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 11:08 AM

"Maybe he wants to play his music for his fans and wants to be paid to do so."

If that was really what he wanted to do, he would have been doing it. He does NOT want to play his music for his fans. That much is apparent. There is nothing wrong with that, many artists choose not to tour. Magnum does not even want to record new music. But bills need to be paid, so live shows here we come.

11:10, if he doesn't want to play or record, then what else is he doing with his life? This is a serious question. I just figured he was a recluse that loved music. If he can't make a living off of it, then how is he paying the bills? Does his 99 week unemployment extension expire in September or something?

Its his right... the point is nearly all the major summer festivals have been announced and his name isn't on one.. dontcha think he was asked ? so its not ALL about money because he's passing up a lot of it to play where he wants to and not let the money dictate..

full band should reunite

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 11:24 AM

The festival comment does not make sense. You get paid more as a headliner than a support act on a festival billing. Duh.

"The festival comment does not make sense. You get paid more as a headliner than a support act on a festival billing. Duh."

duh yourself..

Not when you are playing a 1500 cap theatre for $35 as opposed to a huge corporate sponsored festival with $300+ tickets and 60,000 person capacity.. why do you think so many big name bands play these festivals ? bands get paid inflated amounts to do so..maybe if you are way down the bottom of the bill you don't get much but not if your a big name..

Exactly my point. Wait, you don't really thing Jeff Magnum would get top billing at a festival do you? Mid billing at best.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 11:54 AM

Totally off topic but the last time I saw the Milk Hotel , there was this amazingly annoying couple who were not only talking during the whole show but were talking about TMI info. The guy kept asking her "Do you like my seven and a half inches? Do you like my seven and a half inches? Is it the biggest you've ever had?" Yeah bro you're cool

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 12:01 PM

even mid billing you get paid very well... trust me..
unless you can play to 60,000 people yourself , like U2 , Paul McCartney etc most festivals cant compete but its the second tier acts that it makes financial sense to do so..

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 12:01 PM

DFA1979 is supposedly getting 40k for playing Coachella, so yeah mid-billing pays the bills.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 12:03 PM

..thank you... and Mangum is much bigger than DFA1979..so

Really impressed by the seven and a half inches commenter's commitment.

I believe the correct spelling and pronunciation is "supposABLY". Thanks.

Jeff solo would not even get mid-billing at a festival. NMH? Yes, perhaps even just under the headliner. But solo? $20K tops for a festival.
