All Points East has today (March 8) confirmed the first names on its 2021 line-up, with a number of acts booked for the Saturday (August 28) of the festival.
More acts are set to be announced in due course. Tickets go on general sale tomorrow (March 10) at 10am GMT, but previous All Points East customers can buy from today in the pre-sale – you can find out more information here.
Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents, said that “it feels so great to finally be announcing our first day of All Points East 2021″.
“The chance to be back in the summer sun in Victoria Park is itself alone a reason to celebrate,” he continued. “The fact we are coming back with such a great first line-up announcement makes this an even sweeter moment.
“There are some exciting changes this year, including our move to the August Bank Holiday weekend. We welcome two sensational co-headliners for the Saturday, Jamie xx and Kano, as well as a host of amazing artists. We can’t wait to welcome back live music in the UK and be back dancing with you all later this summer.”
