In might have only burst onto the London festival scene in 2018, but Vicky Park weekender series All Points East has already cemented its reputation as one of London’s best live music events. The festival might not be back until late August this year, but luckily you don’t have to wait until then to catch a bunch of massive artists on the big stage. In the run-up to the main event, the team the Vicky Park festival has teamed up with Ray-Ban (aviator icons and sponsors of the festival’s West Stage) to put on a series of three properly exciting summer gigs at top London venues.
High-tempo selector Sherelle will be kicking off proceedings with a headline slot at Colour Factory on May 26, supported by rising producers LCY and Nia Archives. Next up on June 9, emerging US hip-hop artist Kenny Beats will be bringing his live show to the newly reopened Koko alongside London-born, West Africa-inspired rapper Knucks. And finally, 2022 Brit-nominee and Time Out cover star Self Esteem will be performing songs from her hit album ‘Prioritise Pleasure’ on July 14 at EartH in Hackney.
Three excellent gigs that will just about sate your appetite for live music ahead of the August festival.
