All Tomorrow's Parties - I'll Be Your Mirror - Curated by Portishead

All Tomorrow's Parties has announced a new festival named "I'll Be Your Mirror," a festival set to rotate locations. The first incarnation will be in Tokyo, Japan on Sunday, Feb. 27, 2011. It will eventually take place in cities worldwide and that includes a U.K. version on July 23 - 24 at Alexandra Palace in London.


So far we've learned the U.K.-based version will be curated by Portishead (who'll headline both nights) and include Grinderman, Swans, Beach House, Liars and more. Recent additions to the 2011 lineup include Godspeed You! Black Emperor and a collaboration between graphic novelist Alan Moore (Watchmen, From Hell) and musician Stephen O'Malley (Sunn O))), KTL) for a recreation of Harry Smith's "Heaven & Earth Magic."


ATP's I'll Be Your Mirror takes cues on its name from the song of the same name by the Velvet Underground, which not-so-coincidentally is the flip-side of the song "All Tomorrow's Parties."


All Tomorrow's Parties was started in 1999 by London concert Promoters Barry Hogan and Helen Cottage as a deviation from the corporate festivals of the day. What makes ATP unique is that rather than hiring a music industry person to book the bands, Barry and Helen find a musician, artist, or writer to 'curate' the festival - treating it more like an experience than a business venture.


Curators then create the entire festival — programming bands, DJ sets and a television channel. Check out the information below to see which band or artist is curating which show and when they happen.


Past curators have included Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, Mogwai, Tortoise, Shellac, Autechre, Modest Mouse, Pitchfork Media and the Breeders..
