All Tomorrow's Parties
10.07.2014 01:00 - 13.07.2014 01:00
Described as the "ultimate mix tape", All Tomorrow's Parties is a boutique festival that goes against the grain of the larger, more commercial music festivals - with quality and customer experience coming first - presenting award winning sound and acclaimed organisation. Since 2000 it has spread its ethos of uniquely intimate and eclectic events through the UK and onwards to Spain, Australia, Japan and the USA.
ATP is very excited to announce the second All Tomorrow's Parties festival in Iceland on July 10th, 11th & 12th at the former NATO base in Keflavík, which is now called Ásbrú.
ATP founder Barry Hogan: "Following our first ATP Iceland event last year headlined by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, we're very happy to be returning in July 2014. Portishead have a rich history and close relationship with us, which started with them curating ATP back in 2007 after a long live-hiatus and being the first ever curators for the I'll Be Your Mirror series. Interpol on the other hand, while being long-time ATP favourites, have never played the event, and it's an exciting prospect that the eagerly awaited second Icelandic ATP will be their first."
Dates: The festival takes place on three days - Thursday 10th, Friday 11th and Saturday 12th July, 2014. The music will run from 7pm to 2am each day (exact times subject to change) with around 30 bands set to play live across the three days.
Location: ATP Iceland will be held at Ásbrú, the former NATO base in Keflavík, Iceland. The former NATO base dates back to 1941 and the last US military personnel left in 2006. The site is located only 5 minutes away from Iceland's main international airport, 15 minutes from the famous Blue Lagoon and 30 minutes from Reykjavík. The festival site will host two indoor stages and a cinema with films picked by ATP and the bands, as well as the usual ATP extracurricular activities like DJs, Pop Quiz and much more. The capacity for the intimate festival is just 5000 people.
