A hot freakin’ bopful of brilliant acts have been added to the lineup for next summer’s All Points East Festival.
Taking over Victoria Park from favourites Field Day, Lovebox and Citadel, this new ten-day extravaganza kicks off with a juicy three-day festival, concludes with a series of big British Summer Time-style gigs, and has a creamy filling of free-to-enter daytime events for the local community in-between.

Last week, The XX and The National among others were the first confirmed performers, but today the organisers added a slew of awesome new talent to the line-up.
On the opening Friday, new headliners LCD Soundsystem will be supported by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, and Glass Animals, while on Saturday your queen and mine Lorde will be supporting The XX, with Sampha also added to the bill. Finally, Sunday will see Björk, Father John Misty and Beck all take to the stage. It is HOT, my friends.
We’ll be on the front row. Tickets go on sale from allpointseastfestival.com this Friday.
