Following on from one of the most successful debuts in history that established a new and essential UK music festival, All Points East returns for 2019 – taking over Victoria Park in East London.

The festival’s format comprises two weekends of the most diverse and exciting names in music and four days of free entry and community activities known as In the Neighbourhood.

This year will be kick started by The Chemical Brothers, one of the world’s biggest dance acts. Other highlights on Friday 24th May include Lane 8, Little Simz, Hot Chip, Jon Hopkins, and Primal Scream.

Swaggering onto the scene with debut album ‘Is This It’ in 2001,The Strokes quite literally changed guitar music and have continued to present the perfect picture of American garage rock. Following a hiatus, the band play their first UK show in four years at All Points East on Saturday 25th May.

Rounding off weekend one is Christine and the Queens for their biggest headline show to date. Expect a powerfully important document of young, queer living in this day-and-age. Other highlights on Sunday 26th May include James Blake, Maribou State, and Honne.

Weekend two opens with Bring Me The Horizon who headline the festival on Friday 31st May. Twelve years since the release of the debut record, the Sheffield band continues to both crush and create, their genre-flipping take on various hardcore tropes leading to the release of Amo. Other highlights include IDLES, Run The Jewels and Nothing But Thieves.

Saturday 1st June welcomes headliners Mumford & Sons with their folk-like earnestness and colourful pop textures. Expect to hear a generous setlist with songs from across four brilliant records. Supporting Mumford & Sons are the likes of The Vaccines, Leon Bridges, and Dizzee Rascal.

And for the grand finale, Bon Iver take to the stage closing All Points East on Sunday 2nd June with songs from their new album 22, A Million and For Emma, Forever Ago.

There’s a generous helping of new music across the festival. Must see headliners of tomorrow include British alt-rock band Yak, socially conscious singer song-writer Sam Fender, Irish storyteller Dermot Kennedy and folk pop princess Jade Bird.

The JägerHaus stage will showcase a line-up of exciting new names in a setting that recalls the intimate atmosphere of a secret underground club. Expect new music from Self Esteem, Rosie Lowe, and Westerman. Plus DJ sets from The Vaccines, Fat White Family,  Sian Anderson and more. Of course, it wouldn’t be JägerHaus without ice cold shots.

All Points East also hosts a hugely popular 4-day community focused midweek event. Kicking off on the second Bank Holiday Monday, In The Neighbourhood returns across the half term week for 2019.
