The award-winning festival at London's Victoria Park
Since 2018, All Points East has hosted 10 days of creative programming in Tower Hamlets' Victoria Park with a committed emphasis on sustainabilty and community.
In 2019, due to the success of its first year, the event expanded by bringing big-name headliners together with brand new artists, multi-genre innovators and the Victoria Park community. The line-up featured The Chemical Brothers, The Strokes, Christine And The Queens, Bring Me The Horizon, Mumford & Sons and Bon Iver.
Incredible headliners were just part of the story as the quality of the line-up ran deep – with Primal Scream, The Raconteurs, Hot Chip, Rina Sawayama, James Blake, Kate Tempest and Metronomy just some of the many guests performing across the stages at All Points East.
Q Magazine gave All Points East 2019 the Festival Of The Year award.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, All Points East was cancelled for 2020.
In early March 2021, organisers announced the music festival would return on 27 – 30 August 2021 (moved back three months later than usual) and unveiled the first headliners of the year: Jamie xx and Kano. At the end of the month, Foals and Bombay Bicycle Club were also confirmed as headliners in the second wave of artists, with London Grammar and Jorja Smith topping the third wave.
All Points East's 2021 headliners & line-up
Friday 27 August
Nottingham indie-pop trio London Grammar are headlining the first night of the festival's August Bank Holiday edition. Their third album Californian Soil arrives in April 2021, following on from 2017's No.1-charting Truth Is A Beautiful Thing. With Hannah Reid's incredible voice and the band's ethereal sound, their live shows are always electric.
Also not to be missed is soulful singer-songwriter Jorja Smith, who released her critically acclaimed debut album Lost & Found in 2018. It was nominated for a Mercury Prize. In March 2021, she revealed her first solo single of the year – Addicted – accompanied by a playful video shot at home during lockdown.
Also on the line-up for day one of All Points East are Loyle Carner, Celeste, Mura Masa, Mahalia, Daphni, Floating Points, Kojey Radical and more.
Saturday 28 August
London-born Jamie Smith is not only the acclaimed DJ and producer who goes by Jamie xx, but he's also one-third of The xx. Known for his groundbreaking solo music and carefully curated remixes, he'll take to the All Points East stage on Saturday night.
Trailblazing London artist Kano, who emerged during the mid 2000s as one of the UK’s most skilled MCs also tops the bill on the festival's second evening. Establishing his name with underground hits such as 2004's P's And Q's, Kano went on to release such huge albums as 2005's Home Sweet Home, 2016's Made In Manor and 2019's Hoodies All Summer.
Rounding out the line-up on 28 August 2021 are Tom Misch, Slowthai, Little Simz, Arlo Parks, Nubya Garcia, Pa Salieu, Romy and many more.
Monday 30 August
Oxford rock band Foals are one of the UK's most popular live acts. Beginning with Antidotes in 2008, they've released six top 10 albums and were named Best Group at the 2020 BRIT Awards. Last year, Foals also released Collected Reworks, a career-spanning remix album featuring alternative versions of their expansive catalogue by artists like Ewan Pearson, Solomun, Hot Chip, Mount Kimbie and more.
Mercury Prize nominees and Ivor Novello winners Bombay Bicycle Club will help them close out the festival, returning for the first time after announcing their hiatus in 2016. The inventive band known for their anthem Always Like This released the track Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You) in 2019 and their fourth Top 10 album, Everything Else Has Gone Wrong, came out the following year.
The line-up on 30 August 2021 also boasts Caribou, Gang Of Youths, Whitney, Jade Bird, Tune-Yards, Nadine Shah, Ghostpoet and more.
