All Tomorrow’s Parties present the I’ll Be Your Mirror USA festival this September 21st-23rd at Pier 36 in Manhattan, New York. Pier 36 is a new indoor venue sitting on the edge of the East River between the Manhattan & Williamsburg Bridges, with an outside area that boasts glorious views of Brooklyn and the Statue of Liberty.
Today ATP announced FRANK OCEAN as a headliner on the Friday night. . He has been picked by our co-curator Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs. The Whigs recently released an amazing cover of Frank’s ‘Lovecrimes‘ – download free from http://www.atpfestival.com/assets/newyork/
Also confirmed are ATP fan favourite HANNIBAL BURESS who joins the Friday comedy line-up, and a second performance from ex-Sonic Youth member LEE RANALDO – his previously announced Friday night performance will now be a special ‘Hanging Guitars’ show, and he plays an extra full band show featuring Steve Shelley on drums on the Sunday. EDAN THE DEEJAY also returns to ATP for one of his inimitable DJ sets on the Friday.
The Saturday night of this year’s festival will be headlined by The Afghan Whigs (who have reunited after a 13 year hiatus) and curated by their frontman Greg Dulli, with ATP curating the Friday and Sunday nights – the line-up also features The Roots, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, José González, The Antlers, DJ Questlove, Charles Bradley, The Make-Up, Dirty Three, Mark Lanegan Band, Hot Snakes, Thee Oh Sees and many many more, see below for the full line-up so far!
