Those wily organisers behind the All Tomorrow's Parties festivals – temporary bastions for über-hipsters wafting around Butlins watching the latest bands – have announced the latest line-up for their city festival series I'll Be Your Mirror. And it's a goodie.
Taking over Alexandra Palace for two days in May, the headliners on Saturday will be the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who hold the crown for being the coolest band to come out of New York for well over a decade now. With a new album due out quite soon, this is set to be their first gig in the UK for a number of years.
It’s a feature of ATP festivals that the headliners curate the rest of the acts playing, so Karen O and co have plumped for Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Black Lips and Dirty Beaches, among many others.
The stars on Sunday are alternative indie kings Grizzly Bear, who will be playing their biggest UK gig to date. Confirmed acts for their day include folksy singer/songwriter Cass McCombs and indie rockers The Walkmen.
With a cinema and outdoor rose-garden stage added to the set-up, this year's I'll Be Your Mirror will be bigger than before and – judging by the line-up – it will rock London.
ATP I'll Be Your Mirror will be at Alexandra Palace. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs will curate and headline on Saturday 4 May and Grizzly Bear will take over on Sunday 5 May. For more information and tickets visit the ATP website.
