Line-Up To Be Announced 16th April -
Early Bird Tickets Available Now


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. Now, after having for many years hosted the best of Icelandic musicians at events outside of their home, ATP are very proud to announce our first All Tomorrow's Parties festival in Iceland.

On June 28th and 29th, ATP will present a fantastic bill of live music combining the best of local and international talent at the former NATO base in Keflavík, which is now called Ásbrú.

The line-up will be announced on the 16th April.

ATP's Barry Hogan: "We are very excited to be bringing ATP to Iceland. ATP has a long standing and strong affinity with Icelandic music and the exciting line up of international and local acts we are bringing will ensure this is an event to remember. Iceland is a beautiful country and we are honoured to be working with a great local partner to create a unique event at the former Nato base in Keflavík."

Date: The festival takes place on two days - Friday 28th and Saturday 29th June, 2013. The music will run from 6pm to 2am each day (exact times subject to change) with around 20 acts set to play live across the two 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 (hosted by Dr. Gunni - musician, music writer and host of pop quiz TV show Popppunktur for eight seasons) and much more. The capacity for the intimate festival is just 4000 people.

Transport:


From Keflavík International airport or from Keflavík itself:

The easiest option is to take a taxi at the taxi-stand outside the airport. The festival site is a 5-minute drive away. A good taxi number in Keflavík is +354 420 12 12.

From Reykjavík:

We recommend taking the FlyBus (https://www.flybus.is/flybus) from Reykjavík to Keflavík International Airport, and from there to take a taxi to the festival site. The buses leave from BSÍ, the central bus station.

There is limited on-site parking so please, if you are coming with three friends please all arrive in the same car- not four separate ones. Once the car park is full you will have to park elsewhere, so be prepared!

More About All Tommorrow's Parties:

All Tomorrow's Parties has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the world for almost fourteen years. It was founded in the wake of Belle and Sebastian’s Bowlie Weekender, with Mogwai curating in the unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands, UK. Since then the festival has appeared every year and has expanded across the globe continuing to set itself apart from large scale corporate festivals by staying intimate and fan-friendly. The line-ups are often chosen by significant bands or artists which results in eclectic events that combine performances by legendary and influential acts with appearances by the latest crop of experimental artists from any (and every) musical genre. The festival has become more successful with every passing year, and ATP events have taken place in the UK, USA, Europe and Australia, with past curators including Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Mike Patton, My Bloody Valentine, Portishead, Sonic Youth, Slint, and Tortoise. In 2011 ATP launched a new series of curated city-based events called I'll Be Your Mirror, with events so far taking place in Tokyo, London, Asbury Park New Jersey, New York City and Melbourne. ATP has set itself apart from other festivals by embracing seemingly disparate artistic genres, with events featuring art exhibitions, cinema programmes, spoken word performances and stand up comedy. It's been called 'Unforgettable' by Spin and 'the most enjoyable festival experience of our reporter's life' by Pitchfork. It has spawned an acclaimed concert series (Don't Look Back), a record label (ATP Recordings), and the release of a feature length documentary.
