The inaugural All Points East was an excellent addition to London’s festival calendar in 2018. The ten-day extravaganza was split into the All Points East Festival (the main festival weekend), In The Neighbourhood (four days of free-entry entertainment) and All Points East Presents (three stand-alone nights of music).

This year, the All Points East Festival was headlined by LCD Soundsystem, Bjork and The xx, while Catfish and the Bottlemen, The National and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds headlined All Points East Presents. Both weekends saw performances from huge artists including Lorde, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Father John Misty, Flying Lotus, Beck, Sampha, Young Fathers, St. Vincent, Patti Smith, The War on Drugs and Warpaint.

In The Neighbourhood will take place from 27-30th May, and is set to include an open-air cinema, live music, arts, street food, pop-up bars, theatre and children’s activities, with more details due in the coming months.
