ATP FESTIVAL UNVEILS I’LL BE YOUR MIRROR EVENT IN AUSTRALIA
ATP Festival, which recently announced the end of it’s six year relationship with Butlins, Minehead, has unveiled plans for an I’ll Be Your Mirror festival down under in 2012.
Taking place at the Westgate Entertainment Centre in Melbourne on February 16 & 17, the festival will feature My Bloody Valentine – in their first Australian show since 1992 as well as Godspeed You! Black Emporer in their first ever Australia show. Other acts include Beasts Of Bourbon, Einstürzende Neubauten, Swans, The Dead C, Lost Animal, Thee Oh Sees, Harmony, HTRK, Sleepy Sun, Cam Butler & The Shadows of Love, Standish/Carlyon and more.
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.
Each new All Tomorrow’s Parties event invites an artist or band to handpick their favourite performers to play at the festival. In 2009 ATP presented its inaugural Australian series of events headlined & curated by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds at Mt Buller Victoria, Cockatoo Island Sydney and Riverstage Brisbane to widespread critical acclaim.
