Not long after ATP Concerts LTD, the company behind the All Tomorrow’s Parties festivals, went into liquidation, comes the news that this year’s ATP USA (Sep 21-23, 2012) will be relocated from Asbury Park, NJ to Pier 36 in Manhattan. According to the press release, the festival was relocated to NYC due to, “unavoidable logistical concerns.”

Pier 36 was the intended home for I’ll Be Your Mirror beginning in 2013 – but due to unavoidable logistical concerns (along with a lack of available fan accommodations in Asbury Park), ATP has decided to move there for this year’s event.

As a result of the relocation, a few artists have had to drop off the bill including: Louis CK, Sharon Van Etten, Reigning Sound and Factory Floor. New additions to the ATP NY festival lineup include: Philip Glass & Tyondai Braxton, Janeane Garofalo, Lightning Bolt, Lee Ranaldo, Chavez, Kurt Braunohler, Afterhours, Joseph Arthur, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Album Leaf, The Psychic Paramount, Braids, Tall Firs, Blanck Mass, Endless Boogie, Demdike Stare and DJ Jonathan Toubin.

ATP Concerts today announce the relocation of this September’s New Jersey based I’ll Be Your Mirror festival event to Pier 36 in Manhattan, New York.

Pier 36 was the intended home for I’ll Be Your Mirror beginning in 2013 – but due to unavoidable logistical concerns (along with a lack of available fan accommodations in Asbury Park), ATP has decided to move there for this year’s event.

New additions to the festival today include: Philip Glass & Tyondai Braxton, Janeane Garofalo, Lightning Bolt, Lee Ranaldo, Chavez, Kurt Braunohler, Afterhours, Joseph Arthur, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Album Leaf, The Psychic Paramount, Braids, Tall Firs, Blanck Mass, Endless Boogie, Demdike Stare and DJ Jonathan Toubin with more to be added to all three days – see below for more info on the new additions…

Some artists who are unable to play the new location – the following statement comes from Louis CK’s management:

“Louis CK who was originally scheduled for the Asbury Park event will not be performing at ATP in Manhattan due to scheduling conflicts. Check louisck.com for info about his tour schedule.”

Sharon Van Etten, Reigning Sound and Factory Floor will also not be available to perform. All other previously announced artists will perform as originally scheduled.

“We hope that the new venue will make for an incredible event and open up many other accommodation options to fans who were unable to find rooms in Asbury Park,” comments ATP’s Barry Hogan. “We sincerely apologise to those inconvenienced by the move and hope that any problems caused may be minimised by the relatively small distance between the two locations. Anyone who is unable to attend due to the move or due to the cancellation of Louis CK can claim a full refund by contacting their ticket agent between now and July 31st.”

Pier 36 is a new indoor venue sitting on the edge of the East River between the Manhattan & Williamsburg Bridges – it’s outside area boasts glorious views of Brooklyn and the Statue of Liberty.

The Saturday night of this year’s festival will be headlined by The Afghan Whigs (who have reunited after a 13 year hiatus) and curated by their frontman Greg Dulli, with ATP curating the Friday and Sunday nights.

Tickets are on sale now via ATPfestival.com priced at $199 for the Weekend, with Day Passes also newly available priced at $60 for Friday & $75 for Saturday/Sunday.

Friday will feature both music and comedy – we can now announce a musical headliner for Friday, as esteemed composer PHILIP GLASS teams up with TYONDAI BRAXTON (former Battles frontman) for a completely unprecedented live collaboration. Other stellar additions to the day’s musical line-up are LIGHTNING BOLT – one of the world’s most unmissable live acts, and LEE RANALDO of Sonic Youth. Joining the Friday on the Comedy stage is none other than standup/actress JANEANE GAROFALO, and newcomer KURT BRAUNOHLER, with more to be confirmed. Friday tickets cost $60.

Saturday, headlined by THE AFGHAN WHIGS and featuring a stellar list of artists chosen by the Whigs’ frontman Greg Dulli, has three new artists.
