The ATP festival is returning to the USA next month in the new location of Asbury Park waterfront, New Jersey. Kicking off on September 30th, ATP will pass the torch to trip-hop headliners Portishead, who have curated the event. Eighties rap giants Public Enemy will also be storming the line-up to perform ‘Fear of A Black Planet’. Brooklyn boys Company Flow will be adding to the strong hip hop presence over the weekend. Keeping the balance on the bill are The Horrors, whose latest album ‘Skying’ received a glowing review from Playground. They’ll be joined by Swans , Battles, Anika and Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog.
Reclusive Nuetral Milk Hotel frontman will be performing on both the ATP Friday and Sunday evening, but this show is reserved for those with a full weekend pass. Thankfully, these are still up for grabs at $249 for a 3 day pass for access to all of ATP including a guaranteed entry to Jeff Magnum and at least one Portishead performance.
Individual day tickets are still available (Friday $60, Saturday and Sunday at $99 each).
The first US edition of ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror will be run from September 30th to October 2 nd.
