The muso’s music festival, with eclectic lineups of alternative acts and frequently bizarre locations – this year, a former NATO base in Iceland.
The first ever ATP festival was held at Pontin’s caravan park in Camber Sands, East Sussex in 2000, and its collision of defiantly leftfield lineup (Glaswegian post-rockers Mogwai curated it, Sonic Youth and Aphex Twin were both on the bill) and off-beat venue has set the tone ever since.
Held in different locations in the UK and beyond, and curated by different figures (from David Bowie and The Flaming Lips to indie film director Jim Jarmusch and Simpsons creator Matt Groening) every year, ATP attracts a diverse selection of artists and fiercely passionate devotees who come to worship at the altar of alternative music.
For 2015, the nomadic alternative festival heads to the former NATO base of Ásbrú in Keflavik, Iceland, with the typically eclectic lineup TBC. The first headliner has been announced, and it's Belle and Sebastian.
If it’s neon sunglasses, huge crowds and big-name headliners you’re after, All Tomorrow’s Parties probably won’t be for you. This is an uncompromising muso’s festival – by musos for musos – and its fans wouldn’t have it any other way.
This year, visitors will be able to take a guided tour of the event’s venue - a NATO base where more than 200,000 US citizens lived and worked over a 50-year period.
