A New Festival is Coming to London's Victoria Park

A brand new festival – All Points East – is coming to London's Victoria Park in 2018. 

The ten day event will run from 25 May until 3 June, and will include performances from The xx and The National. 

The event will encompass a three day music festival, as well as a community focussed programme of midweek entertainment, including comedy, sports screenings, educational activities, wellbeing sessions, food and drink and outdoor cinema.

These will be a mix of ticketed and free entertainment, with the event concluding with three standalone headline shows. 

The festival is presented by AEG, who are behind Hyde Park's British Summer Time series and have signed an exclusive agreement with Tower Hamlets Council to be the sole promoters for the east London park.

On the announcement, AEG's Jim King said: "We are thrilled to be able to launch this new festival concept and bring some of the world's most exciting artists to Victoria Park. With a new three-day music festival followed by a programme of midweek events offering open access to the local community all culminating in three huge standalone shows, we’re confident that this is the most exciting new event in the country."

The National will perform on Saturday 2 June, alongside The War on Drugs, Future Islands, Warpaint and The Districts. The xx will headline the festival on Saturday 26 May.
