ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES, COCKATOO ISLAND

Friday 5th December, 2008

Sydney Festival and ATP Australia today announced the second round of acts for the inaugural All Tomorrow's Parties Festival on Cockatoo Island as part of Sydney Festival 2009.

After much weighing up, curators Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds have finalised their ultimate line up, adding Australian 1980s rock darlings The Reels, US psych-rockers Dead Meadow and the avant-rock freak out Japanese twopiece Afrirampo, alongside former Birthday Party guitarist Rowland S Howard, Melbourne bands, The Stabs and Beaches, Sydney outfits Hunter Dienna and Passenger of Shit, Bad Seed Conway Savage and Greek legend Psarandonis, as well as ATP DJs and the exotic Sounds of Seduction to round off the festivities.

With its carefully curated line-up and attention to detail, All Tomorrow's Parties is all about a quality experience - the island, the music, the performances, the limited capacity, fine food and plenty of spaces to sit back and soak up the atmosphere.  It's the ultimate antidote to large, commercial music festivals, making it the quintessential Sydney Festival summer experience.

As well as the possibility of surprise collaborations, All Tomorrow's Parties will be the ONLY chance to see Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Saints, Laughing Clowns, Robert Forster and Psarandonis perform in Sydney in summer 2009.  These acts will be joined by an eclectic mix of artists, including international guests Spiritualized, Harmonia, Fuck Buttons, James ‘Blood' Ulmer and Silver Apples, alongside locals The Necks and Bridezilla.
