All Points East Is Back

All Points East (or APE to its friends) is back.

And as if to prove that it’s the biggest game in town, it’s also going to have a whole other festival within it.

So how does that all work? Well, instead of the ten day affair of innocent years gone by, this time the festival will take place over the weekends of 18th & 19th of August, and then the Bank Holiday weekend following, from the 15th-28th.

And the 19th will see them pack the entire lineup of this year’s Field Day onto the stage, in some kind of music festival Russian Doll. It’s all still going to be in Victoria Park, and there’ll still be all the bells and whistles you’re used to from a music festival – bars, street food, funfair rides, the lot.

So what’s the lineup? Well there are literally dozens of acts on, but the headliners include the likes of Stormzy, The Strokes, Jungle, Dermot Kennedy and more. The Field Day banner names start strong with Apex Twin, then continue strong with acts like Bonobo and Fever Ray.

And to cap it all off, they’re also planning on holding their NBHD (‘In The Neighbourhood’) events too. It’s a completely free, community focused programme of activities including cinema, music, arts, street food & bars, which they put on each year in order to try and give a little back to the place that’s been good enough to host them. Take the time to pop in…

…if you’re in the neighbourhood.


NOTE: All Points East will take place on the 18th & 19th of August, and the on the August Bank Holiday weekend, from August 25th-28th. You can find out more, see the full lineup, and get tickets at the website right HERE.
