Victoria Park. Justice. Sampha. Kelela. Rex Orange County. We could go on for hours. The lineup is monumental.
When you need a break from the belligerence, there’ll be a silky blend of jazz, hip-hop and funk from Tom Misch waiting for you. When you're ready to dive in head-first, there's radical rap from Kojey Radical. If you just want to get down, look out for the unique blend of funk, RnB and rock from Rhye. And don’t forget, distorted pop princess Björk and The xx will be bringing their iconic indie electronics to take things from park to paradise.
With new material, the Guardian have marked as The xx "stepping out of their own shadow", their live show is going to be truly lit. The album in terms of art is aptly titled, I See You mirroring the gradual climb and colour the tracks undress through horns, etches, zig zags and synth blips.
The xx emerged with a new, hyper-emotional brand of RnB with their debut album in 2009, described by Pitchfork as "seductive songs set to spare but effective arrangements". Stamping their bold white cross across a whole new generation, Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim's sultry vocals became instantly recognisable.
Don't miss these iconic sounds at All Points East, Victoria Park, this coming May. You know what to do.
Lineup subject to change.
