Friday 25th May: Kicking off with the iconic LCD Soundsystem headlining the stage , the event will follow with artists such as Phoenix, the eclectic Glass Animals, electronic pioneer Richie Hawtin and Berlin club titans Dixon and George Fitzgerald; all together creating a one-of-a-kind experience of unmissable live music.
Saturday 26th May: Following this amazing line-up comes the equally spectacular Saturday night in which the acclaimed The xx will be performing their signature minimalist electronic sound live, whilst pop artist Lorde will be joining them to showcase her exciting latest album ‘Melodrama’. Mercury Prize winner Sampha will be offering electronic delights from debut album ‘Process’, followed by the Jamaican superstar Popcaan, the dreamy electronic pop of Lykke Li and Rex Orange County!
Sunday 27th May: 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 is growing fast, making him one of the most unmissable performers of the moment.
The Bank Holiday Monday will bring some exciting entertainment, including a street food market curated by Sourced Market, pop-up bars, creative workshops courtesy of Hackney Arts and an outdoor cinema showing movies like The Breakfast Club and Moulin Rouge. In between all that action, however, All Points East continues with a free event called All Points Equal. Themed on 100 years of votes for women in Britain, the event will see live panels, outdoor film screenings (catch Moana, Suffragette, and Made in Dagenham throughout the day), free live music, a staged Suffragette rally, and many more.
