After two postponements, the bash finally gets a start date...
The much-delayed LOS ANGELES leg of the ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES festival has now been scheduled for November.
A post on the event’s official website – [url=]click here – says it will now take place on November 8 and 9 in Long Beach.
The mini-festival has already been postponed twice. A full line-up has not yet been revealed for the rescheduled dates, but Cat Power, The Magic Band, The Boredoms, Built To Spill and Modest Mouse are among those promised to appear.
The West Coast version of ATP was first scheduled for June, then postponed until September due to poor ticket sales. The event was then put back to November due to a conflict with Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah. Now christened ATP Pacific, the event, which was launched in the UK in 1999, is being held in California for a second time.
In addition to moving to Long Beach, about 30 miles south of LA, ATP has been shortened from a three-day to a two-day event. Bands will perform at two venues on docked cruise liner the Queen Mary, now a luxury hotel and convention center.
A number of acts who were to play the festival until it’s delay will now not be appearing, including Patti Smith, [a][/a] and Le Tigre, though ‘The Simpsons’ creator Matt Groening is still curating the event.
An East Coast edition of ATP was also scheduled for this autumn, but has been indefinitely postponed.
