The Art of Pop Video film programme continues with ATP Documentary
8 April 2013
Named after a Velvet Underground song, All Tomorrow's Parties began in 1999 as an alternative to massive, corporate, expensive festivals such as Reading and Leeds. The festival takes over the Pontins holiday camp in Camber Sands, East Sussex.
Each year the festival invites a band, musician, artist to curate a line-up of their favourite music and movies that then takes over the entire holiday camp for a long weekend.
The film has been described as ‘a semi-found multi media bricolage shot by over two hundred filmmakers, fans and musicians over the festival's recent history’. Whether you’re an ATP regular or you’d never heard of it before, the film is a unique portrayal of what is now a world famous festival with offshoots taking place in Iceland, Japan and America.
All Tomorrow’s Parties features amongst others, Belle And Sebastian, Grizzly Bear, Sonic Youth, Battles, Portishead, Daniel Johnston, Grinderman, David Cross, Animal Collective, The Boredoms, Les Savy Fav, Mogwai, Slint, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Gossip, GZA, Seasick Steve, Iggy and the Stooges, F**k Buttons, Shellac, Patti Smith and John Cooper Clark, ATP sets out to be a who's who of alt music.
