Friday, 11th July, is d-day: the British MIDI warriors of the 21st century are coming to Fusion Stage.

During their fruitful and bountiful carrier, ADF shared the hallowed ground of a stage with the likes of Rage Against The Machine, The Cure, and Radiohead.

The crew that influenced many followers of this genre presented their very best at the record that’s coming out this spring, heralded by the latest single ‘Algiers’ (VIDEO: http://bit.ly/1fvYcD). They’ll play their dark, brooding rock sound peppered by true american riffs, and lined with unique lyrics that are borderline black humour at the Fusion Stage at EXIT Festival on 10th July.

ATP@OFF: A Before Party Like You’ve Never Seen Before!

ATP@OFF: A Before Party Like You've Never Seen Before!Can’t wait for the next OFF Festival? Neither can we. And the worst part is just before the event, when you’re not counting the days and weeks anymore, but the hours… We know that some of you will be coming a day early to get your musical fix, and that’s why we’re having a „before party“ with an all-new format, curated by the legendary All Tomorrow’s Parties festival, on Thursday, July 31.

The festival gets its name from the song by The Velvet Underground. Barry Hogan, the man who came up with idea for ATP, says he wanted it to be an antidote to huge corporate musical events. ATP wasn’t meant to attract crowds; instead the point was to focus on top-notch alternative music and offer audiences an experience that they couldn’t get anywhere else. Anyone who’s ever sampled the unique vibe of ATP – be it in the winter, at England’s seaside resorts, or at guest performances in London, New York, and Reykjavik – had to expect that its paths would one day cross those of the OFF Festival.

Says Barry Hogan from ATP: “We are thrilled to be hosting ATP@OFF this year. It’s an event we have admired for many years and it’s clear that Artur is cut from the same cloth as us at ATP. We look forward to more collaborations in the future.“
