Press for ATP New York 2008:

“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

“ATP retained a do-it-yourself scale, with just 2,700 ticketholders and no corporate sponsors.” – New York Times

“One of the cosiest festivals i’ve ever seen: outside of the venues, artists like Kevin Shields are just milling about, and it’s wonderfully uncrowded...relaxed and comfortable.” – Rolling Stone

“ATP NY was the most enjoyable festival experience i’ve ever had in my life. It didn’t feel like a festival, either. It felt like summer camp, or a conference or convention. A gathering of like-minded people with similar tastes.” – Pitchfork

“This was surely one of ATP’s finest ever events.” – The Independent

“This is a blast and not an experience I would trade for the world...so mindblowing and rewarding, don’t think i’ll ever need to go to SXSW again. I’ve going to save my pennies and eardrums for ATP every year....If you ever have the chance to go to ATP, beg, borrow, steal, sell plasma...whatever you have to do. It’s pretty much heaven for the right kind of music fan....simple no one throws down quite like All Tomorrow’s Parties.” – Seattle Weekly

“An unforgettable end to the summer festival season.” – Spin

“The first of what will hopefully become an annual iteration of Britain’s venerated ATP festival.” – Village Voice

“Wonderfully surreal...the fact that the fest is entirely without corporate sponsors or complicated tiers of VIP access makes it truly a unique event.” – Stereogum

“All in all, I think the entire weekend can be summed up with some on-stage banter between members of the Brian Jonestown Massacre:
‘This whole thing is like a weird dream where all your favourite bands are all playing at once...except you aren’t getting any sleep’
Amen, brother.” – Brooklyn Vegan

“ATP represented a veritable world of wonders” – Boston Phoenix

“ATP was the summer rock camp...dreams come to life.” – Entertainment Weekly

“I think part of me is still there.” – SFBG

“A great weekend...i’ll be back in 2009.” – The Big Takeover

“A fantastic festival. It was a blast.” – WMFU

“Now I see how lucky the Brits are...[ATP NY] certainly ranks among the highlights of my life.” - Gigwise

“Perfect venue...amazing music performances...ATP was hands down one of the best, most fun festivals that I have ever attended.” – Poverty Jetset

“Fabulous...one of the best festival experiences i’ve ever had. It’s just so nice to have a festival that isn’t wasting line-up spots on garbage or big, overrated acts....All Tomorrow’s Parties is one of the premier festivals in the world. ” – OhmPark

“Life-altering.” – Bitter Defeat

“Possibly the best collection of artist ever assembled...i’m hoping to return next year...The point is, this was the best live music event of my entire life.” – Swan Fungus

“The best concert I have ever been to, I was so happy to be there, had one of the best weekends of my life.” – Beth From Above
