All Points East 2019 announces The Chemical Brothers as first headline act

By Nick Levine

After this year’s dazzling debut, super-festival All Points East returns to Victoria Park in 2019 for a ten-night stand.

Big beat supremos The Chemical Brothers are the first confirmed headliners, topping the bill on the festival’s opening night, Friday May 24.

The duo are flanked by a fantastic supporting line-up that includes alt-rock icons Primal Scream, space-rock faves Spiritualized, indietronica kings Hot Chip, dreamy Swedes Little Dragon, hip hop pioneer Danny Brown and London afrofunk band Ibibio Sound Machine.

Islington’s rising star Little Simz  – a fave of Kendrick Lamar – will add some local flavour. All Points East has also confirmed that In the Neighbourhood, its programme of free community-focused events, will return in 2019.

Tickets for the first night of APE 2019 go on sale on Friday November 9 at 9am from here. Acts playing other days will be announced at a later date.
