Björk, LCD Soundsystem & The xx to headline All Points East
From the team behind Coachella, the first edition of the London festival also includes Flying Lotus, Lorde, Sampha, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more
Just announced is All Points East, a new festival that will take over London’s Victoria Park next year from 25 May to 3 June; from the organisers behind Coachella, as well as other celebrated US festivals FYF and Panorama, All Points East promises a tantalisingly eclectic lineup for its first edition, with The xx, Björk and LCD Soundsystem in the headline slots.
All Points East takes place over ten days and features a conference as well as a mouthwatering three day festival (25-27 May) spread across six stages. The other acts announced so far include Flying Lotus, Phoenix, Lorde, Sampha, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beck, Sylvan Esso, Father John Misty, Popcaan and Lykke Li.
Also as part of All Points East, The National will perform in a standalone show on 2 June, where they’ll be joined by Future Islands, The War on Drugs, Warpaint and The Districts. The festival is taking over the old east London home of Field Day, which will now take place from 1-3 June 2018 at a new, yet to be announced London location.
All Points East runs 25 May-3 Jun, with the main festival weekend taking place from 25-27 May. Full lineup info and tickets can be found at allpointseastfestival.com, with tickets on sale from 9am on 3 Nov
