Review: All Points East Festival 2018

Monumental thunderstorms and immense sunsets hit London’s dramatic skyline over the weekend as Godlike artists graced the stages at Victoria Park for the inaugural All Points East festival.

All Points East 2018 will be remembered for many things; a diverse line up, glorious sunshine, and East London at its best. On Friday afternoon, Young Fathers bring their genre-bending set to the East Stage; Glass Animals showcase pineapple mania; Hot Chip create disco vibes in the Jägerhaus; Yonaka shut down the Firestone stage with their ferocious alt-rock; and Nick Murphy FKA Chet Faker steals hearts with his dark electronic pop.
