ATP Releases Official Mixtape
In the lead up to the ATP I’ll Be Your Mirror festival in New York City this September 21st – 23rd, ATP is launching an Instagram scavenger hunt today where fans can win a special package of tickets to ATP, three nights accommodation at the Ace Hotel during the festival, Greg Dulli curated books, and Criterion Collection Blu-rays and DVDs. ATP has also released its official mixtape, which premiered at Gawker this afternoon.
This Friday the 14th of September we will be announcing the films and books chosen by Greg Dulli as part of his curation of the festival. Two of the books will be discussed at the festival (hosted by Laphams Quarterly), and the films will be shown in a cinema at the festival alongside other programming by The Criterion Collection and ATP.
For the scavenger hunt, ATP has left copies of some of the books and films featured at the event at various shops and businesses around New York City. Clues about book locations can be found below. Once youve worked out the location of a specific book, ask inside the business to see if your guess is correct. Be the first to Instagram a photo of the book or film to ATP at @atpfestival with #ATPNYC and the shop name, and then keep that item as a prize.
The person that is the first to send in a photo, announcing a film or book as part of the line-up enters into a drawing to win 2 tickets to ATP, a room at The Ace Hotel for the 3 nights of the event and a bumper pack of books and Criterion films in the festival.
Clues as to the whereabouts of where we have placed a book or film are below.
