All Points East is a new ten-day London festival taking place from 25 May to 3 June 2018, after Tower Hamlets Council last week announced the appointment of AEG to promote the festival in Victoria Park. It is a major part of Tower Hamlets’ bid to be London Borough of Culture. Tickets go on sale this Friday 3rd Nov 9am.
Brooklyn dance-rock heroes LCD Soundsystem headline the Friday night. Icelandic superstar Björk tops the bill on the Sunday, joining Saturday headliners The xx for All Points East Festival – the first weekend of the brand new ten-day event.
Kicking off on the May bank holiday will be a three-day music festival with a thrillingly diverse line up of some of the coolest names in music.
Following the opening weekend, a 4-day community focused midweek event will give the park back to the local area with a free entertainment programme of comedy, food, outdoor cinema and more to show the vibrancy of its surrounding area.
The event culminates in three huge ‘APE Presents’ headline shows, the first of which will be topped by Ohio indie rockers The National.
Joining LCD Soundsystem on Friday the 25th of May are Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, Glass Animals, Richie Hawtin, Dixon and George Fitzgerald (Live).
Minimalist electronic indie trio and album chart toppers The xx headline Saturday the 26th of May, joined by Lorde, Sampha, Rex Orange County, Popcaan and Lykke Li.
Björk headlines Sunday 27th May, joined by Beck, Father John Misty, Flying Lotus, Mashrou’ Leila, Sylvan Esso, Hot Chip frontman Alexis Taylor and Agoria.
A truly unique festival environment, an excellence in production, facilities, hospitality and customer service unlike anything seen before in Victoria Park will underpin the entirety of the 10 day event. From the team behind events such as British Summer Time Hyde Park and Coachella, the highest standards will be stamped across every aspect of the event.
Tickets go on sale this Friday 3rd November at 9am.
