The world famous ATP Music Festival series presents:

(Note: this event is for people over the age of 20 only)
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.

"We very much look forward to playing ATP Iceland. We have very strong connections with ATP, and can't wait to do another AllTomorrow's Parties in one of our favourite places. We loved Camber Sands in 1999, and Minehead in 2010, so to do it in Iceland will be a treat. It's been so long since we played In Iceland. It'll be fantastic. We can't wait!"
- Richard Colburn, Belle & Sebastian
"Each year the event is growing and we are working on a fantastic line up to follow on from the likes of Portishead and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. Belle and Sebastian is now our first headliner in what promises to be an exciting third chapter of the ATP Iceland chronicle."
- Barry Hogan, ATP founder
Dates & Times: The festival takes place on three days - Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th July, 2015. The music will run from approximately 3:30pm to 3am on Thursday, and 1pm to 3am on both Friday and Saturday (exact times subject to change) with around 30 bands set to play live across the three days.
Location: ATP Iceland will be held at Atlantic Studios in 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.
Selected press from ATP Iceland 2014:
"This weekend was without a doubt the best music festival I've ever been to"
"We're still recovering after witnessing the myriad of landmark performances we saw this weekend just past"
(Icelandic Music Export)
"The event, especially in the Icelandic context, really shows itself to be unique among other international festivals"
"I took a walk in downtown Reykjavík earlier today; all I heard was talk of Portishead and ATP. That, I think, is a triumph"
'When it comes to putting on a bloody good festival with some of the most influential bands of all time and the most inventive of new talent, you can't really go wrong with ATP. Putting on a festival in Iceland is just another stroke of genius'

Life on a NATO Base - Exhibition guided tour
At ATP Iceland we will offer a guided tour to the exhibition 'Life on a NATO Base' that focuses on the everyday lives of U.S. soldiers and their families during their tour of duty at Naval Air Station Keflavik (NASKEF), Iceland. For over half a century, more than 200,000 U.S. citizens lived and worked at NASKEF along with thousands of Icelandic employees That is a high number considering that the Icelandic population is barely more than 300,000. The gates to NASKEF were closed in September 2006, marking the end of an era. The exhibition is a beginning of a conversation that looks at different cultures and how they coexisted during this time. The exhibition opened in May 2013. For more information: email@example.com / ibudkanans.tumblr.com

All Tomorrow's Parties has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the world for almost sixteen 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.
