This year’s acts are led by The Chemical Brothers, The Strokes, Christine and the Queens, Bring Me The Horizon, Mumford & Sons present Gentlemen of the Road and Bon Iver, alongside other bound-to-be highlights.

Spanning two weekends, there’s no shortage of acts. For the electronic fans, Hot Chip and Primal Scream will be performing on the festival’s opening day, while day two sees the legendary Interpol, Johnny Marr and Jarvis Cocker shaking up the stages. Rounding off the three-day event with mesmerising compositions of soul, electronic and indie, Metronomy, Honne and Maribou State also join the bill.

Weekend two welcomes a riotous assembly with Architects, Nothing But Thieves and IDLES accompanying Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon. Indie giants The Vaccines take to the stage on Saturday 1st June, whilst Sam Fender is sure to pull a crowd as BRITs Critic’s Choice Winner 2019. Continuing the obvious theme of music variety, Mac Demarco and First Aid Kit welcome a laid-back breeziness that can only be found in the never-ending days of summer, as just some of the acts drawing All Points East to a close.

Comparable to British Summer Time but really, really great (aka, not a whiff of Robbie Williams), All Points East is a 'something for everyone' festival that's the perfect place to head to in a big group.

Priding themselves as a neighbourhood festival, there is an additional weekday programme of free activities taking place in collaboration with Tower Hamlets Council, the local community, businesses, organisations and suppliers. From outdoor cinemas and street food to pop up bars and sports activities, In The Neighbourhood is the ideal destination for families and pleasure-seeking Londoners. Last year the midweek programme attracted over 20,000 people daily, as communities were brought together in the celebration of artistic talent and business opportunities.

All Points East runs 24th May – 2nd June with tickets priced between £39.95-£59.95 for individual shows and £169.95 for a weekend festival ticket. You can get your tickets here
