ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES confirm
"I'LL BE YOUR MIRROR" Curated by PORTISHEAD & ATP
23rd & 24th July - Alexandra Palace, London
Portishead’s only scheduled UK shows for 2011
“Portishead have once again been given the horrendous task of joining up with our favourite festival in the world and choosing a dream list of bands we would like to play with - at least the ones that aren't dead or in jail.” Geoff Barrow
On the weekend of 23rd and 24th July 2011 at the stunning Alexandra Palace, London, All Tomorrow's Parties will present the first UK I'll Be Your Mirror event, which will be curated by the mercurial Portishead (who headline both nights) and ATP. 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 will be a new series of artist curated music, film and art events taking place in cities worldwide.
Portishead will headline both nights, with a different stunning supporting line-up joining them each day. Tickets will cost £59 per day with weekend tickets priced at £100. These are the only scheduled UK shows Portishead will play in 2011. Tickets are on sale now.
Here is the line-up so far:
Saturday 23rd July
(original line-up - first UK show in 10 years)
Sunday 24th July
THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC
With more artists, DJs and other activities to be confirmed for both days in the coming months! Across the weekend we will be bringing to the venue a cinema, amazing food vendors, adding extra bars (including some cash bars) and toilets and also putting on shuttle buses from public transport locations to the venue and back to ensure the best experience possible for everyone that attends. Doors will open at midday, with the event finishing at 1am on Saturday and midnight on Sunday. Portishead will finish by 11pm both nights. Under 14s are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. Under 5s do not need tickets but will not be allowed in the venue after 8pm.
