Jeff Mangum’s return to music continues to get bigger. As previously reported, the songwriter had been chosen to perform at this September’s ATP I’ll Be Your Mirror Festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey. But his return just got significantly more notable, as Mangum has added a whole set of shows throughout the second half of 2011.
Not only that, but the former Neutral Milk Hotel frontman will be curating an All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in Minehead, England on December 2-4, where he will select over 40 artists for the festival as well as play multiple solo sets. So far, Superchunk, the Olivia Tremor Control, Young Marble Giants, Tinariwen, the Apples in Stereo, the Magic Band and A Hawk and a Hacksaw have been chosen to play the U.K. festival.
