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, kicking off with three big days of music, spanning Electro-rock, synth-pop and indie folk, then ending with a final weekend of hiphop, indie rock and international stars. You can book separately for each stand alone day on either weekend.
Electronic duo The Chemical Brothers are headlining the opening night of weekend one (Friday 24 May), supported by rockers Primal Scream, indie electro band Hot Chip and local rapper Little Simz. Click here to book.
The Strokes are headlining the following day, taking to the stage for their first U.K. performance in four years. Supporting them on Saturday 25 May are The Raconteurs, Interpol, Johnny Marr and Jarvis Cocker. Click here to book.
Then, on Sunday 26 May, synth-pop star Christine and the Queens takes centre stage with her avant-garde 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.
Week two of the festival begins on Friday 31 May, with Sheffield rockers Bring Me The Horizon headlining, supported by hiphop duo Run The Jewels and alt-rock band Nothing But Thieves.
The eclectic line-up on Saturday 1 June includes the doyenne of Grime Dizzee Rascal alongside guitar-fuelled vocals from The Vaccines and American soul from Leon Bridges, before folk favourites Mumford and Sons headline.
American indie folk band Bon Iver are headlining the final night (Sunday 2 June), supported by Swedish folk
duo First Aid Kit and American Julien Baker, who recently performed on
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Further details of weekend two are yet to be announced but booking opens on Friday 1 February. Click here to book.
In the four day 'working week' stretch between the music making, there's 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.
