“We broke new ground with the pioneering All Queens stage at APE in 2021,” Mary Anne Hobbs said in a statement. “It was the first time we’d been back on a festival stage for two years and it was emotional. It’s a joy to return with my ’22 line-up, loaded with incendiary young artists, with roots in many different cultures.”
Jamz Supernova added: “Really excited to be playing APE again, last year was a real highlight for me. Nothing better than being in your hometown. The stage, the sound and the ravers made it magical. This year, I’m really excited to be curating my own line-up on the 6 Music stage, watching the DJs smash it and celebrating the end of the day by watching James Blake.”
On August 28, Cave and his band will headline the final night of the Victoria Park festival, with the support bill also including Michael Kiwanuka, Sleaford Mods, Japanese Breakfast and more.
Tame Impala headline the following weekend (August 25), while The National take the top spot on August 26. Disclosure – who added a host of support acts including Charli XCX, Mura Masa to their show this week – headline on Saturday, August 27.
