Brooklyn dance-rock heroes LCD Soundsystem headline the Friday night and Icelandic superstar Björk has been announced to top the bill on the Sunday, joining Saturday headliners The xx for All Points East Festival – the first weekend of the brand new ten day event in Tower Hamlets’ beautiful Victoria Park, East London, presented by renowned promoter Goldenvoice.
Since bursting onto the scene with their critically acclaimed, Mercury Prize winning debut album, The xx have honed their trademark minimalist electronic indie to become one of the biggest bands the UK has produced in years. Third record ‘I See You’ saw them step up to truly conquer the world stage with a slew of festival headline shows across the globe as well as a record breaking, sold-out, seven night run at London’s prestigious Brixton Academy.
They are joined by the defining pop sensation that is Lorde, sure to bring an unmissable show that confirms her place as one of the most exciting artists of the modern era. Mercury Prize winner Sampha will be serving up raw cuts and shimmering electronic delights from debut album ‘Process’, plus performances from Jamaican superstar and Jamie xx collaborator Popcaan, the dreamy electronic pop of Lykke Li and Skepta and Frank Ocean collaborator Rex Orange County!
