The people behind the legendary music festival on the West Coast are bringing back their London-based creation, All Points East, for a second year.
All Points East will once again be a 10-day extravaganza running from the 24 May to 2 June. It is split into two weekends of music, kicking off with three big days of music, spanning Electro-rock, synth-pop and indie folk. You can book separately for each stand alone day on either weekend.
Electronic duo The Chemical Brothers will headline the opening night of Weeknd one (Friday 24 May), supported by rockers Primal Scream, indie electro band Hot Chip and local rapper Little Simz. Click here to book.
The Saturday line up for Weekend 1 is still to be announced, but on Saturday 26 May synth-pop star Christine and the Queens takes centre stage with her avant-garde brand dance moves. Supporting acts include indietronica favourites Metronomy, soulful song-writers Beach House and American multi-instrumentalists Kurt Vile and the Violators. Click here to book.
The festival will close with Weekend 2 offering three more standalone concerts. The full line-up is to be announced but American indie folk band Bon Iver are set to headline the final night, supported by Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit and American Julien Baker, who recently performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

In the four day 'working week' stretch between the music making, there will be free entry to the arena and a chance to enjoy its street food offering, outdoor film screenings, family events, arts, literary talks and general springtime merriment.
The festival debuted last year with big name headliners including Björk and LCD Soundsystem. The event, which attracted over 80 thousand people, brought the best bits of summer festivals (cooling ciders, party vibes and live bands) to the Big Smoke.
