Interpol, Portishead to headline ATP’s second Iceland festival

Portishead and the returning Interpol have been announced as headliners for the second successive ATP event in Iceland, due to take place at a former NATO base in Keflavík over the weekend of July 10th-12th this year.

Although it continues on elsewhere, the ATP festival series came to end in the UK last year after co-founder Barry Hogan explained that: “When we started all this 14 years ago, we had no idea how a festival curated by a single artist and based in a family holiday camp would play out. It was a mad idea that somehow came to fruition, helped by the fact that people were looking for something different from the overpriced conveyor belt corporate rock sponsor-fests that populate the British summer.”

“The support from the artists and festival-goers alike has been incredible but it’s time to move on and look towards the future, it may also be time to let Camber Sands rest in peace!”
