On the bill are Built to Spill , Meat Puppets , Thurston Moore, Tortoise, Shellac , Mogwai , Polvo, F--- Buttons, Autolux, The Drones, Low, Wooden Shjips, Edan with guest Dagha, and Thee Silver Mount Zion Orchestra.
More acts will be announced shortly, according to a press release.

About 30 bands are expected to play throughout the weekend, starting in the mid-afternoons, with DJ sets running into the late-night hours, according to organizers.
Three-day passes costing $225 plus fees go on sale beginning Friday (4/25), and tickets including accommodations will also be available. Further information can be found at the ATP Festival website.
My Bloody Valentine fell off the radar following its critically acclaimed 1991 album, "Loveless." Late last year, frontman Kevin Shields confirmed the band was back together and planning to release new music, according to Billboard.
