The band -- who will make its lone British 2012 performance at ATP -- made the announcement earlier this morning on its site.
"Since their formation in 1999, the National have grown organically from indie cult heroes in their early years, to creating truly stunning LPs such as the amazing 'Alligator' and 'Boxer,' and more recently with the success of 'High Violet' deservedly achieving crossover success to become one of the most acclaimed bands on the planet," a statement on the festival site said.
All Tomorrow's Parties will present 40 live acts on three indoor stages with the maximum festival capacity capped off at 5500. The festival will also feature late evening DJ sets, a cinema and even a National-curated book club.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, Jan 20 at 2pm local time through the festival site with additional information on lodging and early bird specials provided.
In related news, the Jeff Magnum-curated All Tomorrow's Parties set for the same location in March has added more artists to the lineup. The Neutral Milk Hotel singer will be joined by the Magnetic Fields, Joanna Newsom, Thurston Moore, Low, Robyn Hitchcock and the Olivia Tremor Control.
