Playlist: All Points East 2018
Now, we don't want to speak too soon, but it's looking like we've turned a corner weather-wise. Now that we're feeling distinctly more summery, we thought it's about time we hit you with another summer festivals playlist.
This time it's the turn of All Points East, a brand new mega-festival taking over Victoria Park and one of the key players in our London festivals summer schedule. The line-up can only really be described as ridiculous -- you know you're onto a winner when Lorde is playing and she's not even a headliner. We've got LCD Soundsystem (Friday), The xx (Saturday) and Björk (Sunday) taking the top spots, and they'll be joined by the likes of Beck, Justice, Sampha, Kelela, Young Fathers, BadBadNotGood Superorganism, Chromeo, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and so so many more. Oh, AND there’ll be London summer festival exclusive sets from The Black Madonna, Hunee, Omar S and Shanti Celeste. Literally what more could you want? Yet more there is...
The festival is the first part of a ten-day event, and is followed by a four-day Tower Hamlets community-focused programme culminating in a performance from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds on 3rd June. This being the brainchild of the promotion extraordinaires at Goldenvoice UK, All Points East promises to be one of the biggest and best events of the summer.
To get you in the festival mood, crack on this brand new playlist of all the artists we're most excited to see at All Points East, and grab your tickets here while you're at it!
