Ten years ago, UK concert promoter Barry Hogan rewrote the book on what a music festival should be: a DIY communal gathering at a seaside holiday camp where like-minded music geeks could indulge in specialty programming curated by guests such as Mogwai, Portishead, Mike Patton and even Simpsons creator Matt Groening. Because not everyone could be there, we now have All Tomorrow's Parties, the film. Intercut with '60s era British holiday clips, most footage from this bricolage was shot by fans and bands. With performances by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Animal Collective, Grinderman and Lightning Bolt, ATP covers all angles with a raw, kinetic vision unlike any other concert film.
