2018 was the inaugural year of All Points East, a brand new music event for discerning music fans showcasing an eclectic line up of the coolest and most forward thinking artists, with an emphasis on delivering the best sound quality that Victoria Park has ever heard.
Spanning over ten days, the event encompasses a three day music festival, a community focused programme of midweek entertainment and three huge stand alone APE Presents headline shows.
The xx, LCD Soundsystem and Bjork headlined the first festival headliners to top the bill, alongside a carefully curated, multi-genre line-up across six stages. Joining them across the weekend was Sampha, Lorde, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, Glass Animals, Beck, Father John Misty, Popcaan, Lykke Li, and many more!
In addition to the festival, APE host stand alone Presents shows. The National, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Catfish and the Bottlemen headlined each of these shows, with support from a range of acts such as The War on Drugs, Patti Smith, Future Islands, Warpaint, and The Districts, the Hunna, Blossoms, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, the Neighbourhood and the Amazons.
So far, the 2019 edition of the festival boasts headliner Chemical Brothers on May 24, Christine and the Queens on May 26, Bring Me The Horizon on May 31 and Bon Iver on June 2, with loads of incredible support bands across the two weekends.

The first staging of All Points East had a lot riding on it.

And it did. Helen Payne found some awkward stage timings to navigate during an otherwise perfect, if excessive, few days.
