But the people behind ATP have still managed to put together an awesome, all-over-the-place bill for their annual Iceland festival. This year’s ATP Iceland come… More »

Jabberwocky Refund Update: ATP Says Maybe Try Your Bank

London’s Jabberwocky Festival, presented by All Tomorrow’s Parties, was supposed to begin tomorrow. Instead, ATP made a last-minute decision to cancel the festival earlier this week, claiming that the costs of the show would put the company out of business for good.

Jabberwocky Ticket Seller, PR Firm Take Legal Action Against ATP

The Jabberwocky Festival, which All Tomorrow’s Parties was co-presenting along with Pitchfork and Primavera Sound, was set to come to London this weekend, bringing an enviable lineup of acts.

Watch TV On The Radio Play New Song “Mercy”

Dave Sitek’s been moonlighting behind the boards for Beady Eye’s new record, but his day job is very much a going concern, too. TV On The Radio headlined the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry Festival a few weeks ago, and last weekend, they closed out the UK edition of All Tomorrow’s Parties (which they also curated). At… More »

Watch The National Play New Songs “Lola,” “Sullivan” & “Prime” At ATP

This past weekend, the National curated and headlined their own ATP Festival in England, and during their set, they played four new songs. One of those was the set’s opener, “Lola,” a somber and strummy song that has me pretty amped about the prospect of a new National album. Watch a nicely-executed fan-made video below. More »

ATP I’ll Be Your Mirror Moves To NYC, Amends Lineup

This year’s American version of the ATP Festival isn’t canceled or anything, but from the looks of things, the festival won’t be quite as much fun as it once promised to be. This year’s Afghan Whigs-curated I’ll Be Your Mirror fest, like last year’s, was originally slated to go down in Asbury Park, New Jersey,… More »

Watch Joanna Newsom, Low, The Fall Play ATP Minehead

Over the weekend, the Jeff Mangum-curated ATP festival went down in Butlins, Minehead, UK, and as a result there’s some footage out there from the likes of Joanna Newsom, Low, and the Fall. Check that out down below, and if other stuff pops (perhaps from the likes of Magnetic Fields, Thurston Moore, Mangum himself, etc.),… More »

Louis C.K., The Roots, The Make-Up To Play ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror New Jersey

You know who doesn’t play a whole lot of rock festivals? Louis C.K., that’s fucking who. In fact, the general-consensus greatest comedian in the world today never plays music festivals, presumably because he doesn’t have to. And yet he’s a new addition to the bill at ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror New Jersey festival, which… More »

Afghan Whigs Reunite For ATP

Back in the day, Greg Dulli’s wailing soul-rock band the Afghan Whigs lent a much-needed air of sex and danger to an alt-rock era dominated by Seattle-style self-flagellating. The band broke up in 2001, but next year, they’ll get back together to headline two big shows for All Tomorrow’s Parties. More »

Joanna Newsom, Magnetic Fields To Play Jeff Mangum’s Rescheduled ATP

Last month, we reported that the version of the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival that the formerly reclusive Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum was curating had been postponed from a planned December date to a weekend in March.

ATP NJ Sunday: Public Enemy Rock The Crowd, Rap With Portishead

The original idea behind Public Enemy’s set in the Asbury Park convention hall was that they’d play their landmark 1990 album Fear Of A Black Planet in full, for the first time ever. Well, they did that. But because of Mogwai’s last-minute cancellation of their entire North American tour, P.E. ended up having to do… More »

ATP NJ 2011 Saturday: Portishead Pack Asbury Park Convention Hall

Jeff Mangum has justifiably been getting the lion’s share of the attention surrounding the I’ll Be Your Mirror festival; when a reclusive indie god comes out of hiding, it’s a big deal. But the weekend also marked a long-awaited return for the festival’s curators and headliners. Last night, Portishead stepped onstage in the Convention Hall… More »

ATP NJ 2011 Friday: Jeff Mangum Makes People Cry

Though the location has changed, the community feel of the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival experience is still intact on New Jersey’s Asbury Park boardwalk. Though nothing can match the vibe and quarters of Kutsher’s — it was like the set of a B-movie horror flick where all festival attendees and participants boarded together — the… More »

Stereogum’s 10 Most Anticipated Fall Music Festivals Of 2011

The summer slate of festivals can surely get a little overwhelming, as year after year, more and more events are added to an already-saturated calendar. That growth, given the fact that most of these concert events are totally cleaning up from a bottom line perspective, probably won’t change in 2012 (although lingering issues associated with… More »

ATP NY 2010: Sleep, Sunn, Skinny Dipping

At this point people know what to expect from Kutscher’s: The faded Catskills resort’s crumbling walls held together by mold, broken everything (we were forced to do our own DIY toilet plumbing, heard about another one that flushed boiling water), that lost-in-time Tammy Faye Makeup Counter. What we didn’t expect was the persistent skinny dipping… More »
