UPDATE: This rumor is confirmed true.

"Thanks for your patience in waiting for our statement on the changes within the company- they'll be ready to announce in the next few days." - ATP


Not that you were rushing to at the moment, but maybe hold off on buying tickets for ATP I'll Be Your Mirror in Asbury Park for a bit (and definitely don't book a hotel room just yet). Stay tuned for more info.

UPDATE: This rumor is confirmed true.

(Also weird that Louis CK doesn't list ATP in his tour dates. No word yet if we should take that seriously. And, UPDATE: Louis also doesn't list 2 Atlantic City shows on his tour dates page, so that's a good sign.). UPDATE: Sorry to say, but Louis CK is NOT playing ATP anymore.

* Sharon Van Etten drops off ATP NJ
* ATP files for liquidation, current shows unaffected

I hope they offer refunds!

No! Although I am not going to this years ATP @ Asbury Park due to a lack in personal interest for most of the acts, last year with Portishead was incredible. The venue was perfect and as an attendee it seems like it all went flawlessly. It truly was one of the best show experiences of my life and really wanted to make it an annual thing for myself but the line-up just didn't thrill me, and if it goes to NYC forget it.

shitty lineup

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 8:10 PM

The issue with Asbury Park is that all of the artists play NYC as well. So if you are only interested in a handful of bands, it is simply better to go to separate shows in NYC.

If it were a real festival with camping, then the atmosphere would be better. But some random hotel in Jersey? Pass.

Ck out. NYC in. Confirmed.

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 8:38 PM

Ah yes, a festival in NYC. That Pitchfork/Bowery Presents Forms festival really went well back in February, right?

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 8:49 PM

"Ck out. NYC in. Confirmed."

So it looks like most of the shows are the existing ones the bands are doing in NYC, but surely they need to add more bands to bill to fit them all.

If the anon who thinks CK out, ATP in is legit, then can you give a tip as to what venue they're moving this to?

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 8:52 PM

New venue has only hosted one music event to date

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 8:55 PM

bullshit. a lot of bands that aren't confirmed yet for the lineup are listed for NJ Asbury (lightning bolt, greg dulli on friday)

folks be trollin

If they cut off sales right now, and move it to someplace like Joe's Pub (or Barbes!) then THAT would be fucking awesome. If they just limp on at Webster Hall or some such, that would be weak sauce.

might as well cancel the whole thing if they're gonna bring this to Bowery venues

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 9:18 PM

If I can't see Louis CK because ATP refused to provide updates, someone is going to fucking pay.

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 9:24 PM

If I had tickets I'd be pissed. Hoofing out to shitty Asbury was part of the fun.

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 9:40 PM

this worked well last year in asbury.

the lineup this year is a bit....lighter than last.

need more bands. or at least more demanding ones.

went from mogwai and portishead and public enemy to...

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 9:40 PM

"more demanding (bands, like) mogwai and portishead and public enemy"

LOLWUT? REALLY? Demanding, yes ... when compared to Adele or Katy Perry

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 9:44 PM

mogwai dropped out last year also. Louis CK and Afghan Whigs are a big draw. there's also a whole other half to added

Posted by The Fartist | July 12, 2012 10:16 PM

FUCK....If you leave Asbury Park mofos you better be prepared to offer FULL refunds........

Posted by Money bags | July 12, 2012 10:16 PM

I have $900 worth of 3 day passes just begging to be refunded if ATP screws up Asbury.

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 10:22 PM

$900? weren't they 199 each?

ATP is always the worst festival every year.

Only GYBE and Louis C.K. interest me...get some good metal like IBYM London!

just shows how much i differ from you idiots. mark lanegan, afghan whigs, hot snakes, dirty three, reigning sound, factory floor, vetiver, thee oh sees...emeralds, scrawl...i love these bands.

Posted by Anonymous | July 12, 2012 11:52 PM

This is wack. I'm not opposed to NYC so much as I'm opposed to the kind of people that deliberately avoid this festival because they're lazy NYC-concert-goers. If the whole thing is populated with them, that's garbage. Additionally, I don't want to end up stuck at a single fucking dogshit venue. While the big hall at Asbury wasn't my favorite, it's still lightyears beyond a bunch of Bowery presents venues that are miles apart.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 12:21 AM

hasn't the appeal of ATP over here been going to run down venues? asbury was a lot of fun last year.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 12:45 AM

Nothing will touch the sound quality of the Paramount Theater and the Lanes had a good late night vibe. Would be a shame if they screw up AP. What is the appeal of staying in NYC for a festival? If they move it, at least move it back upstate or in some other decrepit town in the NE corridor.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 1:10 AM

...Another thought...scurrying around NYC just would not be fun...would not have the appeal of being able to run between all three venues in AP within less than 5 minutes.

Not to mention being on the ocean, decent lodging, etc.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 1:15 AM

I have no use for festivals in the city. Really, I don't know how anyone can stand seeing more than a small handful of bands in a day. Getting old, I guess.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 2:49 AM

Are the ipods playing? That is the perfect festival band -- real diversity from track to track!

The real weird part is that by now, mid july, the friday line up haven't been announced yet.

Posted by ME | July 13, 2012 6:38 AM

1:10am, sound at AP wasn't great at all.
Sound at the catskills was state of the art.

Posted by ME | July 13, 2012 6:42 AM

Just give me a Dirty Three headlining show in NY. Maybe this is the unfortunate reason they don't have one scheduled.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 7:56 AM

Sound at convention hall differed band to band , The Paramount and Asbury Lanes were fine.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 8:01 AM

Give me GYBE and AW in a <1000 capacity venue and I'll gladly pay the $200 festival price.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 8:01 AM

The well in bushwick? Maybe knitting factory as a smaller venue? If they do anything with bowery presents I quit.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 8:49 AM

i hope this rumor isn't true, but i don't think brooklyn vegan would ever post false rumors... bv even got the scoop on the secret modern weepers show before anybody else knew about it.

ATP will be back in 2013, in a beautiful South Bronx venue curated by Fab 5 Freddy

"In terms of vibe, it is simply the best music festival there is." - NPR

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 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 priced at $199 for the Weekend, with Day Passes also newly available priced at $60 for Friday & $75 for Saturday/Sunday.

Full information on the additions to all three days of the line-up...

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. First up are alternative rock band CHAVEZ, who returned to the live arena in the last few years to much acclaim, and they're joined by Italy's AFTERHOURS (past collaborators with Greg Dulli) and Ohio based singer/songwriter JOSEPH ARTHUR. They join the previously announced Saturday line-up of The Afghan Whigs, The Roots, José González, Mark Lanegan Band, Dirty Three, The Antlers, The Dirtbombs, Scrawl, Emeralds, Vetiver, Charles Bradley And The Extraordinaires and DJ Questlove with more to be confirmed. Tickets for this day cost $75.

Sunday will be headlined by one of the incomparable live shows from legendary Canadian post-rock pioneers GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR. Also newly confirmed are Canada's fantastic BRAIDS, Britain's DEMDIKE STARE and BLANCK MASS (feat Benjamin Power of F**k Buttons), intense New York post-rock from THE PSYCHIC PARAMOUNT, a return ATP performance from THE ALBUM LEAF, cult rock quartet ENDLESS BOOGIE, alt folk duo TALL FIRS, and DJ JONATHAN TOUBIN. They join the previously announced Sunday line-up of The Make-Up, Hot Snakes, The Magic Band, Autolux, Thee Oh Sees, I Break Horses and Quintron And Miss Pussycat (moving to this day from Saturday) with more to be confirmed. Sunday tickets cost $75.

As well as the live music line-up and comedy on the Friday, our friends at The Criterion Collection will return to run the Cinema across the weekend. All three days feature DJs and other activities to be confirmed in the months ahead. Each day runs from noon-midnight.

Here is an updated look at the line-up so far including the new additions...
