The xx and The National are two of the first acts to be confirmed for a brand new ten-day event, All Points East.
The xx are set to take to the stage on Saturday 26th May, alongside special guests Popcaan and Lykki Li, with further supports to be announced. The National will then appear the following weekend alongside The War On Drugs, Future Islands, Warpaint and The Districts, amongst others yet to be confirmed.
Due to take place from 25th May to 3rd June in London’s Victoria Park next year, the music-related side of All Points East will come in two halves: the first as a three-day festival - The xx’s set will be part of this - with, as the press release puts it, “three huge standalone headline shows” bookmarking the end of the week.
Tickets for The National are set to go on sale at 9am on Friday 27th October from www.allpointseastfestival.com, while ticket details for All Points East Festival will be confirmed next week.
