Last week, a report surfaced that All Tomorrow’s Parties — the music festival promoter behind annual events in the U.S., UK, and Australia — had filed for liquidation, and all of its future events would be managed by a new company called Willwal LTD. Today, ATP issued a statement addressing its future and the state of its upcoming events, which you can read below.
In the statement, ATP revealed that its upcoming “I’ll Be Your Mirror” music festival on September 21st – 23rd has been moved from Asbury Park, New Jersey to Manhattan, New York. “This is due to logistical reason… Anyone unable to attend due to this change will be able to request a full refund,” the statement reads.
To go along with the location change, several more artists have been added to the bill, including Philip Glass and Tyondai Braxton, Janeane Garofalo, Lightning Bolt, Lee Ranaldo, and Chavez. However, Louis CK, Sharon Van Ettern, Reigning Sound, and Factory Floor are no longer playing. You can see the full lineup here.
Here’s the full statement:
We have now completed a restructuring of the business of ATP Concerts Limited. This involved the Voluntary Liquidation of ATP Concerts Limited and transfer of its assets (including the rights to the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival, label, and shows) to a new company called Willwal Limited. We will also be dividing the business into three different companies; ATP Festivals, ATP Recordings and ATP Shows.
The team however, remain the same, having been transferred over to Willwal Limited – and the festival is still called All Tomorrow’s Parties. All future events will continue as scheduled on the dates advertised and all tickets for those events are still valid.
ATP remains unwaveringly committed to hosting world class events. Since our inception it has been our mission to provide quality concerts for discerning music lovers around the world – our number one priority has always been the bands and the fans and we work hard, sometimes under difficult circumstances, to achieve the highest standards possible. It is a tough climate out there, but this restructuring will ensure that ATP is around for many more years to come. We thank the fans who have stood by us over the years and especially during this recent time of reorganisation.
Other news we are announcing today is that the U.S. event on September 21 – 23 is to be moved from Asbury Park, New Jersey to Manhattan, New York. This is due to logistical reasons and a full press release regarding the move can be read here. Anyone unable to attend due to this change will be able to request a full refund.
We have many exciting developments and opportunities available to us that will be announced over the coming months. We will be continuing the work we have done over the past 13 years and would like to thank everyone for their kind support over the past week – we apologise that this statement has taken longer than anticipated to be released (due to needing certain legal clearances) – we thank you again for your patience and apologise for any unnecessary worry caused.
In addition to I’ll Be Your Mirror”, ATP’s other upcoming events include Nightmare Before Christmas, set for November 30th – December 2nd in Camber Sands, England; and ATP curated by the National, set for December 7-9th in Camber Sands, England.
