Atp Iceland 2014 Add Mogwai, Slowdive, Shellac Plus Many More

All Tomorrow's Parties today announces the lineup for their 2014 Icelandic Takeover, which includes a Neil Young & Crazy Horse show at Laugardalshöllin on July 7th, and the second ever ATP Iceland Festival, to be held at the former NATO base Ásbrú in Keflavík near the nation's capital, from July 10-12th.

First up are Steve Albini's brutal alt-rock outfit Shellac, playing Iceland for the first time since 1999. They're joined on the bill by US slowcore legends Low. LIARS' latest record sets them up for incendiary set at ATP Iceland, and the dreamy sound of Slowdive will be a big draw for many. Alt-folk star Devendra Banhart will also enter the spotlight for a solo outing, and seminal Scottish post-rock outfit Mogwai will bring their evergreen epic noise to the festival.

On the home team are Ben Frost, the Iceland-based Australian whose acclaimed new album A U R O R A is due to drop soon. Young Icelandic twins Pascal Pinon join the bill alongside their Morr Music labelmate Sin Fang, as do classic Icelandic rock band HAM, and Fufanu (formerly Captain Fufanu).

These bands join an already stellar lineup, with Portishead, Interpol, Swans, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Fuck Buttons, Eaux, Forest Swords, Samaris, Low Roar, For A Minor Reflection, Sóley and Mammút already announced.

With the lineup of music now complete, there are still some exciting announcements to come, including the curator/s of the ever-popular cinema schedule, and the details 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.

Festival tickets that include on-site accommodation quickly sold out, so the festival has secured extra accommodation on-site at Ásbrú to reflect the demand. Located only a short walk from the venues, these tickets are available as 2-berth and 4-berth Combination tickets with access to the Neil Young & Crazy Horse show are also available.

7th July:
Neil Young & Crazy Horse @ Laugardalshöllin, Reykjavík
