It’s one of the greatest line ups of them all!
I’ll Be Your Mirror, the cool creative and curated festival of arts and live music is back for its 3rd year at Ally Pally from 4th-5th May and what a line up is planned. Around 35 bands in total are set to play the event across the two days plus DJs, Films and more to be confirmed!
Headlining and curating too - get set for the long awaited return of New York’s mighty Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They will be playing their first London headline show in four years on Saturday 4th to coincide with their much anticipated spring album launch.
The band will be personally picking the line-up for their day. Word is that they will be joined by the inimitable live sensations Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Atlanta rockers Black Lips, the excellent Anika, Stockholm’s The Field, Polaris prize nominee Dirty Beaches, Garage rock stunners King Khan And The Shrines, and Mick Harvey (The Birthday Party, The Bad Seeds) who will play a special set paying tribute to the songs of Serge Gainsbourg.
On Sunday 5th May, festival spotlights turn to Grizzly Bear who, following the huge success of last year’s Shields album, will play their largest UK show to date as headliners of I’ll Be Your Mirror. They will also be personally curating the rest of the line-up for their day and we’re happy to be able to confirm legendary Beach Boys collaborator Van Dyke Parks, cult indie rock group The Walkmen, post-rock pioneers Tortoise, New Jersey’s Real Estate, Sweden’s I Break Horses and Californian singer/songwriter Cass McCombs as their first choices.
Many more acts will be confirmed in the weeks ahead. Tickets are on sale now via www.ATPFestival.com. £59 for Day Tickets or £110 for a 2 Day Pass.
