Wednesday 27th November, 2013

The World Famous ATP Music Festival series presents:

ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES ICELAND 2014

July 10, 11 & 12 2014 at Ásbrú (Former Nato Base), Keflavík, Iceland

Early Bird tickets now available here.

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.

ATP is very excited to announce the second All Tomorrow's Parties festival in Iceland on July 10th, 11th & 12th at the former NATO base in Keflavík, which is now called Ásbrú.

ATP founder Barry Hogan: "Following our first ATP Iceland event earlier this year headlined by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, we're very happy to be returning in July 2014. We are preparing an amazing line-up which will be announced very soon!"

Early bird tickets are available now and the line-up announcement will follow soon.

Dates: The festival takes place on three days - Thursday 10th, Friday 11th and Saturday 12th July, 2014. The music will run from 7pm to 2am each day (exact times subject to change) with around 30 bands set to play live across the three 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 and much more. The capacity for the intimate festival is just 5000 people.

There are shared kitchen facilities with cooking/dining utensils included. Bedding is included. Check-in for accommodation is from 12pm noon on Thursday July 10th and checkout is by 12pm noon on Sunday July 13th.

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.

More About All Tomorrow'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.
