Portishead’s only scheduled UK shows for 2011
“Portishead have once again been given the horrendous task of joining up with our favourite festival in the world and choosing a dream list of bands we would like to play with - at least the ones that aren't dead or in jail.” Geoff Barrow
Preparations are now fully underway for one of the most highly anticipated events of the Summer - All Tomorrow's Parties first UK I'll Be Your Mirror event, taking place on 23rd & 24th July 2011 at the beautiful Alexandra Palace, London.

Tickets are priced at £59 per day and are available via www.atpfestival.com. Today we can confirm a number of new additions:
* New acts for the line-up - Helen Money and The London Snorkelling Team are added to the Saturday, and on the Sunday we can announce Fairhorns and also we're very pleased to be able to present the last ever show from Acoustic Ladyland.
