Selected press from 2008:
“An unforgettable end to the summer festival season.” – Spin
“ATP NY was the most enjoyable festival experience i’ve ever had in my life.” – Pitchfork
“Most of the bands seem to be strolling the grounds with the fans, unlike most festivals, where the stars seem to hide in their trailers...it’s quaint, unique location has provided the event an easy-going summer camp vibe...ATP was a great example of what a festival should be- manageable, full of cool people and boasting a solid line-up...it was a pretty perfect weekend.” - Billboard
Selected press from 2009:
"ATP is an animal all of its own. There is an energy that is positive, creative and palpable. Musicians wander about the grounds, checking out the bands. The sound system is killer. " - Brooklyn Vegan

ABOUT ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES
All Tomorrow's Parties has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the world for the last ten 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. 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 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.
For ten years 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 has spawned an acclaimed concert series (Don't Look Back), a record label (ATP Recordings), and a feature length documentary about the festivals from Warp X, titled All Tomorrow’s Parties, out now on DVD.
