ATP are incredibly excited to announce our headliners and curators for this year. Saturday 4th May will see the long awaited return of New York’s mighty Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who will play their first London headline show in four years – their new album Mosquito, the follow-up to 2009’s It’s Blitz, will be released this Spring. The band will be personally handpicking the line-up for their day. So far we can confirm 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. There is much, much more to be confirmed.

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. Previous London events were curated by Portishead and Mogwai respectively, with the events featuring amazing performances from acts such as PJ Harvey, Grinderman, Slayer, Afghan Whigs, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and winning an industry award for sound quality.
