They’re highlighting acts who would’ve played the east London festival this week and next.

We don’t need to tell you that at some point this weekend, you might have ended up with an ice-cold, not-entirely-cheap pint in hand, watching live music. A sweltering Victoria Park in east London was set to play host to acts including February cover stars Tame Impala, returning indie kids Bombay Bicycle Club, electronic legends Kraftwerk and their 3D setup, Glass Animals, Thom Yorke, Young Fathers, Iggy Pop, Anna Calvi, Jehnny Beth and many more at All Points East between 22nd - 24th May and 29th - 31st May.

To mark this, the festival have set up ‘Ten Days of All Points East’, a hub featuring exclusive gigs - Jehnny Beth will perform from home in France tonight (22nd May) - interviews, playlists, among other things.

Organisers say, “Today would have marked the start of All Points East 2020 and in celebration of our talented, vibrant, diverse and extraordinary artists and collaborators we will be showcasing the hidden corners of our festival over the next ten days. Please come together and enjoy a treasure trove of experiences. We will be sharing it all on this page so keep checking for new content. Each day starting from today. Love to all x”
