Haim are the latest headliners to be join the All Points East 2023 lineup.
It follows news of The Strokes also headlining one of the days alongside fellow New Yorkers Yeah Yeah Yeahs in London’s Victoria Park in August. The event will be a “huge day of anthemic rock from New York and beyond”, according to the organisers.
Grammy-winners The Strokes previously performed at the festival in 2019, and are best known for their early 2000s singles like ‘Last Nite’ and ‘Reptilia’. ‘The New Abnormal’, their most recent album, was released in 2020 and peaked at number three on the UK charts.
So when can you get tickets for the festival, and which other acts will be appearing on the bill? Here is everything you need to know.
When is All Points East 2023?
The Strokes will be headlining All Points East on Friday 25 August 2023.
Though All Points East is a multi-day festival, it is often held across multiple weekends. While you can get tickets to all days if you wish, each is treated more of a standalone event, with each day’s line-up usually catering towards a specific headline act or genre.
For instance, this year rapper Stormzy will headline the festival’s Friday 18 August date. The 29-year-old grime star will also curate his own line-up for This Is What We Mean Day.
Haim will headline the August Bank Holiday Monday slot at the Victoria Park festival, with Girl In Red, Confidence Man, Lizzy McAlpine, Tove Lo, Joesef, Snail Mail, Romy (The xx), Avalon Emerson & The Charm, Tamino, Nieve Ella, Mae Stephens, Nell Mescal and Gigi also included in the lineup on that day.
Who else is playing?
This summer’s lineup also includes Australian punk band Amyl And The Sniffers, American singer-songwriter Angel Olsen, avant-garde rock band Black Midi, indie rock band Julie, Hastings teen rockers HotWax, and singer-songwriter Nieve Ella. Norwegian indie pop artist Girl In Red will also perform at the event for the first time.
The All Points East festival debuted in 2018, and has seen some of the biggest names in indie, dance and alternative music headline, including Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem, The Chemical Brothers, Kraftwerk, Tame Impala, and The National.
