I'll Be Your Mirror is a new series of artist curated music, film and art events taking place in cities worldwide. The London event will have two days of music at Alexandra Place, with artists like Portishead to headline.

Acting as sister events to the world famous ATP Festivals which usually take place in holiday resorts, and named after the b-side to The Velvet Underground's original All Tomorrow's Parties 7" single, I'll Be Your Mirror will be a new series of artist curated music, film and art events taking place in cities worldwide.

Alexandra Palace was chosen as the venue because it's grandeur and history has always held a special place for ATP founder Barry Hogan. Growing up locally, Barry developed a strong affinity with the venue, which has played host to a history of special acts and events like Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, The Pixies, the Grateful Dead and the epic 1967 kaleidoscopic rave 'The Technicolour Dream' which featured Pink Floyd, The Pretty Things & The Move.

Now, I'll Be Your Mirror will be added to the venue's list of historical moments in what promises to be a huge two days of the music, art and film.
