All Tomorrow’s Parties will be returning to Asbury Park, New Jersey with a new I’ll Be Your Mirror event, the Saturday night of which will be headlined by The Afghan Whigs (who have reunited after a 13 year hiatus) and curated by their frontman Greg Dulli. Formed in 1986, the bands career from then until 2001 saw them release six critically acclaimed albums during their career. Fusing classic rock with grunge-era distortion and a heavy soul influence, The Afghan Whigs were one of the most renowned live bands of their time and ATP is excited to be a part of this long awaited reformation.
I’ll Be Your Mirror will also feature Grammy Award winner LOUIS C.K. (handpicked by Greg Dulli) who will be making a rare festival appearance, the fantastic THE ROOTS, JOSE GONZALEZ, a show from the reformed THE MAKE-UP and many others, see below for full line-up confirmed so far.
After previous years in upstate New York, ATP moved to the iconic Asbury Park waterfront in 2011 for a hugely successful I’ll Be Your Mirror event co-curated and headlined by Portishead, and we are very happy to return to this very special location in September. The Convention Hall has seen the likes of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, The Doors and Rolling Stones grace its stage and the Paramount Theatre has welcomed stars such as Tony Bennett who often insists on playing a song with all the electrics turned off to demonstrate the amazing acoustics of the room. Once again the ATP experience will be taking over the boardwalk, with the main shows taking place at the Convention Hall and Paramount Theatre, and other events happening at the Berkeley hotel (former home of Johnny Cash).
As well as the live music line-up of 35+ acts across the weekend, Friday will feature a Comedy stage, and we’re very pleased to announce that our friends at The Criterion Collection will return to run the Cinema across the weekend. All three days feature DJs and other activities to be confirmed in the months ahead. Performances take place indoors with great soundsystems, so you have no need to worry about the weather, and Asbury Park is easily accessible via public transport from nearby cities (see below for details).
Chosen by Greg Dulli:
THE AFGHAN WHIGS
MARK LANEGAN BAND
SHARON VAN ETTEN
QUINTRON AND MISS PUSSYCAT
CHARLES BRADLEY AND THE EXTRAORDINAIRES

On Sunday 27th May 2012 Alexandra Palace will host the first show in 13 years from Cincinnati’s rock legends THE AFGHAN WHIGS. Formed in 1986, the bands career from then until 2001 saw them release six acclaimed albums highlighted by the classic Gentlemen LP in 1993. Fusing classic rock with grunge-era distortion and a heavy soul influence, Afghan Whigs were one of the most renowned live bands of their time and this long awaited reformation will no doubt be a very special event.
ATP are also pleased to confirm their return to Asbury Park, New Jersey USA where they will follow last year’s debut in that city with a 2012 I’ll Be Your Mirror event, the Saturday night of which will be headlined by THE AFGHAN WHIGS and curated by the Whigs’ frontman Greg Dulli.

We also have other confirmations for all three days of the London festival. The event starts on Friday 25th May when the incomparable SLAYER will present their undisputed classic Reign In Blood live in it’s entirety during their headline set to celebrate it’s 25th anniversary. They’re joined by the previously announced SLEEP and MELVINS, and today we can add black metal heroes WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM and a rare performance from Oregon doom metal group YOB.
On Saturday 26th May, the first ever ATP festival curators MOGWAI will return to headline, and to curate the rest of the day’s line-up – this will be their only show in England in 2012. Alongside their first choices MUDHONEY and reformed slow-core heroes CODEINE we are now very happy to add one of the greatest live bands on the planet DIRTY THREE who will return in 2012 to release a new album. Also returning for their first UK date since reforming last year are cult alt rock band CHAVEZ (feat. Matt Sweeney) and we can also a rare show from FLOOR (feat. members of Torche).
On Sunday 27th May, as well as our new headliners THE AFGHAN WHIGS, we can also add much loved and recently reformed American indie-rock group ARCHERS OF LOAF, and ATP will also be presenting the cream of new musical talent with shows from the wonderful DEMDIKE STARE, and Canadian psych-folk group SISKIYOU.

Acting as sister events to the world famous ATP Festivals which usually take place in holiday resorts, and named after the b-side to The Velvet Underground’s original All Tomorrow’s Parties 7″ single, I’ll Be Your Mirror is a series of artist curated music, film and art events taking place in cities worldwide. Last year’s debut London event was curated by Portishead & ATP, featured amazing performances from acts including PJ Harvey, Grinderman, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Company Flow, and was widely acclaimed:
“As an attempt to recolonise the space with the spirit of rock and roll, the inaugural “I’ll Be Your Mirror” festival can be considered a resounding success.” – Sunday Telegraph
“I’ll Be Your Mirror was a pure triumph.” – Stool Pigeon
“Like a cooler Meltdown festival.” – Evening Standard
“The UK festival season may be sated but there is room for a new addition as rich as this.” – The Guardian
The Great Hall of Alexandra Palace has played host to a history of special acts and events – Led Zeppelin in 1972, New Order, the Stone Roses, The White Stripes, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, The Pixies, the Grateful Dead and the epic 1967 kaleidoscopic rave â€˜The Technicolour Dreamâ€™ which featured Pink Floyd, The Pretty Things & The Move, and now itâ€™s the turn of Iâ€™ll Be Your Mirror to be added to the venueâ€™s list of historical moments, in what promises to be an unparalleled weekend of the best music, art and film in the Capital.
Friday-Sunday Weekend Tickets cost Â£130. Friday Day Tickets are priced at Â£39. Saturday and Sunday Day Tickets are priced at Â£59.
Many stunning artists, DJs and other activities are to be confirmed for the event in the coming months! Across the weekend ATP are bringing to the venue a cinema, food vendors, adding extra bars (including some cash bars) and toilets and also putting on shuttle buses from Wood Green (the closest tube station) to the venue and back. Friday runs from 4pm-11pm. On Saturday and Sunday doors will open at midday, with the event finishing at 1am. Headliners will finish by 11pm both nights.
