All Tomorrow’s Parties are thrilled to announce the new line-up additions for the third edition of ATP Iceland festival in 2015, held at the former US Air Force base Ásbrú in Keflavík near the nation’s capital.
Joining confirmed acts like Iggy Pop, Drive Like Jehu (appearing at their only European summer festival in 2015), Run The Jewels, Deafheaven, Vision Fortune, headliners Belle & Sebastian as well as Godspeed You! Black Emperor are Public Enemy, Swans, Lightning Bolt, Bardo Pond, Grísalappalísa, Valdimar, Stafrænn Hákon, Oyama, Mr Silla and Kippi Kaninus.
Politically charged NY hip-hop clique Public Enemy have achieved nothing short of legendary status and by this point are regarded as seasoned festival performers of the highest calibre. This year’s slot in Keflavik will be the group’s first appearance in Iceland. In addition, Michael Gira’s unflinching experimental rock outfit Swans line up beside 90s Philly space-rock pioneers Bardo Pond, while Lightning Bolt bring their much-lauded, furious, live performance, playing tracks from their critically acclaimed new album Fantasy Empire.

ATP Iceland will be held at Ásbrú, the former NATO base in Keflavík, Iceland. The former NATO base dates back to 1941 and the last US military personnel left in 2006. The site is located only 5 minutes away from Iceland’s main international airport, 15 minutes from the famous Blue Lagoon and 30 minutes from Reykjavík. The festival site will host two indoor stages and a cinema with films picked by ATP and the bands, as well as the usual ATP extracurricular activities like DJs, Pop Quiz and much more.
Details of the curator(s) of the ever-popular cinema schedule will be announced soon, as well as info of the food & drink element of the festival that brings so much happiness to attendees each year, as they devour some Icelandic food between bands.
