London’s newest festival is back at it once again. Having already announced a mouthwatering lineup which will see The xx, Lorde, The National, Nick Cave, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Björk, LCD Soundsystem and countless other acts descend onto Victoria Park this summer, the festival has unveiled it’s latest round of names.
Joining the lineup are Belgian electro heroes Soulwax, set to bring their world-renowned live shows to APE, they are joined by Kelela, Abra, Yaeji, Maribou State (DJ), Parcels, Jesse James Solomon, Octavian, Her, Bones Garage and Debonair.
Also unveiled today are the staging concepts for this year’s festival. From immersive all round stages such as the x-stage, to world-class speaker systems making their first visit to the capital, All Points East seemingly has it all.
Speaking about the new stage layout, festival director James King said: “Every stage at All Points East is designed to offer fans a different experience wherever they are on the site and at whatever time of the day it may be. Lighting and video are essential to delivering an ever changing and evolving production and live experience. We want the stages to feel unique for every performance so the artists can deliver their own personal vision to their fans, making each set stand out from the last.
To achieve this the East Stage will host a large scale LED screen setup to provide a huge canvas for each artist to deliver their own look and bespoke feel supporting their live performance. The North stage takes inspiration for many of the world’s greatest theatres where concentric arches help achieve lighting spectacles rarely seen outdoors.
The West Stage is simply a full on indoor immersive production set up where large scale lighting and LED combine with great sound and a break from the sun. The X Stage is a new exciting design specifically created for All Posts East. We wanted one of the best quad based systems in the world to deliver a sound field much like the very best clubs did back in the day.
These 4 stages are just the start. The great thing is, there is more to come….”
