Portishead and ATP announce I’ll Be Your Mirror

By | Published on Thursday 25 November 2010

Portishead have announced that they will play two shows at Alexandra Palace in London next year, featuring an incredible line-up of support acts curated by the band themselves and the folks behind the All Tomorrow’s Parties festivals. The shows, one of a number of global events under the name I’ll Be Your Mirror, will take place on 23 and 24 Jul.

Commenting on the task of putting the shows together, Portishead’s Geoff Barrow told CMU: “Portishead have once again been given the horrendous task of joining up with our favourite festival in the world and choosing a dream list of bands we would like to play with – at least the ones that aren’t dead or in jail”.

Here are the current line-ups of those non-dead or imprisoned bands:

23 Jul: Portishead, MF Doom, Company Flow (original line-up’s first UK show for ten years), The Books, Factory Floor, BEAK>.

24 Jul: Portishead, Swans, Beach House, Liars, The Passion Of Joan Of Arc, Anika.

More acts are still to be announced. Tickets go on sale tomorrow from
