John Carpenter will make his live debut at All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in Iceland.

The festival will take place from July 1 – 3, 2016 in Keflavík.

Carpenter will play selections from last year’s Lost Themes album – which is available to order from by clicking here – alongside his classic film scores and new music.


He will be joined by his son Cody, godson Daniel Davies, and a full live band for the show. You can watch a trailer announcing the show below.

“We are incredibly honoured to present the first ever show by this legendary film-maker and composer. Having had the opportunity to present the maestro Ennio Morricone twice in recent years, it has been a burning ambition of ours to also present John Carpenter, who is both a pioneer and a huge influence on us and so many great musicians and film-makers that we work with. You’d be fucking crazy to miss this,” said ATP’s Barry Hogan.
