All Points East festival
The three-day-weekender kicks off on Friday 25th May with the iconic LCD Soundsystem headlining the stage whilst fellow New Yorkers and indie-rock icons Yeah Yeah Yeahs return to the UK for a musical journey through their acclaimed back catalogue. Also joining them are Parisian kings of pop Phoenix, the eclectic Glass Animals, electronic pioneer Richie Hawtin and Berlin club titans Dixon and George Fitzgerald (live); all together creating a one-of-a-kind experience of unmissable live music.
Following this amazing line-up comes the equally spectacular Saturday night in which the critically acclaimed The xx will be performing their signature minimalist electronic sound live, whilst pop sensation Lorde will be joining them to showcase her exciting latest album ‘Melodrama’. Mercury Prize winner Sampha will be serving up shimmering electronic delights from debut album ‘Process’, meanwhile expect performances from Jamaican superstar Popcaan, the dreamy electronic pop of Lykke Li and Rex Orange County!
Going out with a bang on Sunday is the Icelandic superstar and cult legend Bjork who, after four decades, shows certainly no signs of slowing down with brand new album ‘Utopia’. Joined by Beck, whose reputation as a live favourite makes him one of the most unmissable performers on the planet; witty, folk singer-songwriter Father John Misty, and the creative enigma Flying Lotus who will be bringing his 3D show to APE for the first time outside of the US! Meanwhile, Mashrou’ Leila, Sylvan Esso, Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor and Agoria (live) will also be joining this amazing line-up for the perfect way to commence this massive weekend.
Following on from this huge, non-stop festival will be three headline shows. Currently announced are The National on the 2nd June to play their biggest headline show to date, featuring very special guests The War On Drugs, Future Islands, Warpaint and The Districts. Whilst on the 3rd, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds will be bringing their incredible presence to Victoria Park, alongside special guests Patti Smith, St. Vincent and Courtney Barnett.
Whether it’s a weekender festival experience you’re more interested in, or a stand-alone gig, both at Victoria Park are bound to be spectacular events and are certainly worth checking out to make your Spring 2018 extra exciting.
