Portishead and Interpol have been announced as the headliners of the second ATP Iceland festival, marking the debut performances for both bands in the country.

Announcing the news, ATP founder Barry Hogan told CMU: “Portishead have a rich history and close relationship with us, which started with them curating ATP back in 2007 after a long live-hiatus and being the first ever curators for the I’ll Be Your Mirror series. Interpol on the other hand, while being long-time ATP favourites, have never played the event, and it’s an exciting prospect that the eagerly awaited second Icelandic ATP will be their first”.

Also appearing on the line-up will be Icelandic acts Sóley, For A Minor Reflection, Samaris, Low Roar, and Mammút, with more to be announced over the coming months.

ATP Iceland will take place from 10-12 Jul at former NATO base Ásbrú in Keflavík, with a number of pre-festival events in Icelandic capital Reykjavík from 7 Jul. For more info head over to
