Central London music festival All Points East have upped the stakes for UK festival lineups by announcing some of the biggest headline acts we’ve seen so far…
In particular, the first Saturday of the festival has already sparked our interest. Iconic NYC band The Strokes have been announced as the headliners of the day, marking their first performance in the UK after a four-year hiatus. Also taking to the stage is Sheff’-owns Jarvis Cocker, and supplemented by the likes of Interpol, Johnny Marr and Parquet Courts.
If you needed another excuse to attend, what better reason than to see our very own Bring Me The Horizon play their first festival headline. The band have just released their 6th album and we think they deserve our supported wherever they roam.
