ATP announced today that Portishead and Interpol as the first headline acts for ATP Iceland 2014. Neither act has performed in Iceland before.
ATP founder Barry Hogan made the following statement: “Portishead have a rich history and close relationship with us, which started with them curating ATP back in 2007 after a long live-hiatus and being the first ever curators for the I’ll Be Your Mirror series. Interpol on the other hand, while being long-time ATP favourites, have never played the event, and it’s an exciting prospect that the eagerly awaited second Icelandic ATP will be their first.”
Portishead headline July 11th and Interpol headline July 12th alongside Icelandic acts Sóley, For a Minor Reflection, Samaris, Low Roar, and Mammút.
The festival in Keflavík takes place on three days – Thursday 10th, Friday 11th, and Saturday 12th July 2014. The music will run from 7pm to 2am each day (exact times subject to change) with around 25 acts set to play live across the three day festival. There will also be various events happening in Reykjavík from Monday July 7th during the days leading up to the festival (details to be announced soon).
