Described as the "ultimate mix tape", All Tomorrow's Parties is a boutique festival that goes against the grain of the larger, more commercial music festivals - with quality and customer experience coming first - presenting award winning sound and acclaimed organisation.

Each All Tomorrow's Parties event invites an artist or band to handpick their favourite performers to play at the festival. In 2009 ATP presented its inaugural Australian series of events headlined & curated by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds at Mt Buller Victoria, Cockatoo Island Sydney and Riverstage Brisbane to widespread critical acclaim.


"For all the many and varied highlights, ATP was infinitely greater than the sum of its parts. The music, the vistas, the people, the atmosphere: for all those lucky enough to attend the inaugural Australian ATP, this was an event to cherish forever." - The Australian

After years of fan emails and letters, ATP will return in February 2013 for a very special I'll Be Your Mirror event in Melbourne. Acting as sister events to the ATP Festivals which usually take place in holiday resorts, I'll Be Your Mirror is a series of artist curated music, film and art events taking place in cities worldwide, launched by ATP in 2011. IBYM is ATP without the accommodation aspect and is named after the b-side to The Velvet Underground's original All Tomorrow's Parties 7" single.

Joining us as guest co-curators for IBYM are Australian natives The Drones. The band have released a number of albums on the ATP Recordings label, and it is with great pride and pleasure we asked them to co-curate this very special event - we consider them to be one of the country's greatest ever bands and very worthy ATP curators.

Winners of Rolling Stone Magazine’s Best Live Act in 2010, The Drones last studio release Havilah (2010) won two AIR Awards for Best Independent Album and Independent Artist Of The Year, received multiple ARIA nominations, and had the honour of winning Triple J Magazines peer voted poll for Greatest Australian Songs Of All Time, where fellow songwriters voted Shark Fin Blues in at #1. 


Adding to the excitement of the return of ATP to Australia is the announcement of some of our incredible line-up, which will span genres and continents in its selection of musical delicacies. This will be the only Australian ATP event with this line up in 2013. Confirmed so far alongside The Drones are:

There will be two stages, a cinema, art exhibition and an amazing food court. The event starts at midday on Saturday and Sunday until late with around 30 acts set to play live across the weekend...
