ATP is pleased to announce that Lapham's Quarterly will be joining us at I'll Be Your Mirror this year to host a literary stage on Sunday October 2nd at the event. Lapham's Quarterly sets the story of the past in the frame of the present. Four times a year, the editors choose a question current in the headlines--foreign war, financial panic, the whereabouts of God--and bring answers to it from authors whose powers of observation and expression have passed the test of time. The theme at I'll Be Your Mirror will be "The Future" in keeping with their forthcoming issue centered around that subject. Stay tuned for further announcements shortly.
The weekend will also host The Jonathan Levine Gallery, renowned artist SHEPARD FAIREY (who has created the art for this event and will also DJ) will be presenting an exhibition of his art over the weekend entitled Revolutions: The Album Cover Art of Shepard Fairey. More details of the exhibition will be confirmed soon.
Cinema over the weekend will be presented by the Criterion Collection.

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. This year ATP launches a new series of curated city-based events called I'll Be Your Mirror, starting in Tokyo in February, London in July and now Asbury Park.
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'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 about the festivals from Warp X, titled All Tomorrow’s Parties, out now on DVD.
