The organisers of All Points East Festival have announced a new online content hub, ‘Ten Days Of All Points East’.
The venture has been set up following the cancellation of the 2020 edition of the east London festival, a decision that was made following the coronavirus outbreak.
This afternoon (May 22) has seen the launch of ‘Ten Days Of All Points East’, marking what would’ve been the first day of All Points East 2020. Promising to “showcase the hidden corners of our festival”, exclusive content will be housed on the site from today through to May 31.
Jehnny Beth is helping launch ‘Ten Days Of All Points East’ later today by playing an exclusive gig from her home in France. Anna Calvi‘s 2018 All Points East performance will also be streamed, while a special screening of the film WHITE RIOT — which documents the London protest movement Rock Against Racism — will be shown in association with NME.

Today would have marked the start of All Points East 2020 and in recognition of our talented, vibrant, diverse and extraordinary artists and collaborators we will be showcasing the more hidden parts of our festival over the next ten days. Nothing can compare to the physical experience so rather than replicating this year’s programme we are going off the beaten track and shining a spotlight on the smaller corners that also make All Points East so brilliant. Please come together and enjoy a treasure trove of experiences. We will be sharing it all on our website and socials so keep checking for new content each day starting from today. And finally thank you to everyone that has been part of our journey, this short film salutes you. Love to all ❤️ 🎧 @gengahr ❯ Atlas Please
