This announcement threw me! Last summer's IBYM (Portishead, Swans, etc) was fantastic. Defo considering this one...

ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES announce
"I'LL BE YOUR MIRROR" London
25th-27th May 2012 - Alexandra Palace, London
Slayer performing Reign In Blood, Mogwai, Guided By Voices confirmed to headline!

On the weekend of the 25th-27th May 2012 at Alexandra Palace, London, All Tomorrow's Parties will present the second UK I'll Be Your Mirror event. Tickets are on sale via this link from Friday 11th November at 10am.


ATP are incredibly excited to announce that this year the event starts on Friday 25th May when the incomparable SLAYER will present their undisputed classic Reign In Blood live in it's entirety during their headline set to celebrate 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." Joining Slayer on Friday night are influential doom metal trailblazers SLEEP - this will be their first UK visit since reforming for two amazing ATP festival shows in 2009, and legendary Washington sludge group MELVINS, with more to be confirmed.

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 and their first choices to play alongside them are another great Washington band in the form of the fantastic MUDHONEY, and playing their first shows since 1994 with their original line-up in anticipation of also re-issuing their astounding back catalogue, reformed slow-core heroes CODEINE return to the UK (more info on their reunion here). More of Mogwai's choices are to be confirmed very soon.

On Sunday 27th May, the line-up will be curated by ATP, who are very excited to announce that our first confirmed headliner comes in the form of 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.

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 is a series of artist curated music, film and art events taking place in cities worldwide. Last year's debut London event was curated by Portishead & ATP, featured amazing performances from acts including PJ Harvey, Grinderman, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Company Flow, and was widely acclaimed:

"As an attempt to recolonise the space with the spirit of rock and roll, the inaugural "I'll Be Your Mirror" festival can be considered a resounding success." - Sunday Telegraph

"I'll Be Your Mirror was a pure triumph." - Stool Pigeon

"Like a cooler Meltdown festival." - Evening Standard

"The UK festival season may be sated but there is room for a new addition as rich as this." - The Guardian
The Great Hall of Alexandra Palace has played host to a history of special acts and events - Led Zeppelin in 1972, New Order, the Stone Roses, The White Stripes, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, The Pixies, the Grateful Dead and the epic 1967 kaleidoscopic rave ĎThe Technicolour Dreamí which featured Pink Floyd, The Pretty Things & The Move, and now itís the turn of Iíll Be Your Mirror to be added to the venueís list of historical moments, in what promises to be an unparalleled weekend of the best music, art and film in the Capital.

Friday-Sunday Weekend Tickets will cost £130 - a limited amount of Early Bird Tickets will be available priced atOs £120.

Friday Day Tickets are priced at £39. Saturday and Sunday Day Tickets are priced at £59.

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. Friday runs from 4pm-11pm. On Saturday and Sunday doors will open at midday, with the event finishing at 1am. Headliners will finish by 11pm both nights. For a constant stream of music, interviews, videos and more from artists playing the event, make sure to follow the I'll Be Your Mirror London 2012 Tumblr blog!

OK, "Reign in Blood" is an undisputed classic, but how much cooler would it be if Slayer announced they were going to play "Show No Mercy" in its entirety?

Saw Slayer doing RIB in its entirety when they supported Trivium (?) at the Hammersmith Apollo a few years ago. Only reason I went. Would agree with Padre - seeing SNM would be unreal. Doubt it will ever happen though Laughing The Friday looks tempting. Overall those ticket prices are expensive enough although I suppose it depends how many bands end up on each day.

Especially if the performance was something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P55Ip3cGTAg

Including the synchronised headbanging at the start!

(The crowd in this video obviously haven't a clue about what they're seeing and hearing!)

If it did sell out, it didn't for a good while anyway - though this year was the first UK IBYM. It was a two-dayer last time 'round but I was only able to go to the second day. I must say it was fantastic though.

The venue was well laid out and, even though there was a ton of stuff going on, the scheduling meant it was easy to catch everything you wanted to see. Refreshing to have such a variety of genres and styles at one event, too.

It'll be very interesting to see who else makes it on the bill next year.

Codeine! Touring too, apparently. Fuck all this backward-looking nostalgia business though.

Somehow missed that YOB, Wolves in the Throne Room, Dirty Three and Floor were added... Guided By Voices cancel.
