I'll Be Your Mirror 2012

at Alexandra Palace, London

This event has been and gone.

All Tomorrow's Parties will present the second UK I'll Be Your Mirror event.

The incomparable Slayer will present their undisputed classic Reign In Blood live in it's entirety during their headline set on Friday 25th May, celebrating it's 25th anniversary. Released in 1986, it is widely considered one of the greatest albums of all time - in 2006 Metal Hammer named it "The best metal album of the last 20 years." Slayer will be joined by Sleep and The Melvins.

On Saturday 26th May, the first ever ATP festival curators Mogwai will return to headline, and to curate the rest of the day's line-up - this will be their only show in England in 2012. Washington grunge kings Mudhoney join them, and playing their first shows since 1994 with their original line-up in anticipation of re-issuing their astounding back catalogue, reformed slow-core heroes Codeine also join the line-up.

On Sunday 27th May, the line-up will be curated by ATP, with the first confirmed headliner being reformed indie rock legends Guided By Voices - playing their first UK show since 2003 with their classic line-up in the lead up to a highly anticipated new album. They will be joined by a full line-up of stellar artists including some amazing exclusives - the first act to announce are the excellent Yuck.

Many stunning artists, DJs and other activities are to be confirmed for the event in the coming months. Across the weekend ATP are bringing to the venue a cinema, food vendors, adding extra bars (including some cash bars) and toilets and also putting on shuttle buses from Wood Green (the closest tube station) to the venue and back.



Slayer appearing at this event

The Grandaddies of Thrash are still going and are just as brutal as ever. Controversial from the word go, and as extreme as anything that had gone before, Slayer shook the metal world to its foundations in the 80s with a succession of intense, violent and hugely popular albums. Two decades later and Slayer are still one of the biggest draws on the metal circuit.

Mogwai appearing at this event

Glasgow's critically acclaimed post-rock band, led by Stuart Braithwaite. Loved by the late John Peel, Mogwai put an emphasis on epic big scale music with an orchestral feel. Rich and luscious in its atmosphere and texture, here's a group that really will take you on a trip to somewhere else. Who needs vocals when instrumentals can be this powerful?

Umberto appearing at this event

The alter ego of musician Matt Hill, a true master of the horror film soundtrack aesthetic, Umberto's music is a hypnotic, all-consuming journey, reeling you into a foggy, neon-lit world of graveyards, stalkers, haunted houses, witches and blood-stained corpses. Evoking the unsettling progressive rock of Goblin and the sinister, dystopian synth-work of John Carpenter, his acclaimed releases are as playful and experimental as they are expertly crafted.
