One of the writers went to All Points East festival a few years ago, and the atmosphere was unrivalled. Although we can never guarantee the weather, listening to our favourite artists live, enjoying street food and drinking cider in the sunshine is always a glorious time. Now it’s your turn to see huge acts in Victoria Park, and here’s how you can secure tickets.


The award-winning festival takes place in London’s Victoria Park over summer. This year, it’s split into three days: Stormzy’s This Is What We Mean Day, Field Day, and The Strokes’ headlining concert.

Stormzy was announced as the first headliner for All Points East at the end of last year, and he teamed up with the festival to curate a special line-up of artists for This Is What We Mean Day. If you’re a fan of Stormzy, you’ll recognise the day is named after his upcoming album, This Is What I Mean, which has already been previewed with the single Hide & Seek.

Speaking about All Points East, the Croydon-born rapper said: “I was thinking what’s next, cos we’ve done three O2s, shut that down. I said to the team, we gotta do something bigger, something better, something different. We were having back to back meetings, bouncing ideas.

"Then it hit me, I started jotting down ideas thinking – live band, need a live band. August 2023, a summer time thing, outside, for the people, always for my people. So August 2023, Victoria Park, more info coming soon… This Is What We Mean Day. Hard.”

Field Day is a new addition to the summertime festival. It features producer and DJ Aphex Twin, also known as Richard David James, and he’ll be joined by artists Bonobo, Jayda G, Kelela, plus many more.

And leading the line-up is New York indie-rockers The Strokes, fronted by Julian Casablancas. With the band’s debut EP The Modern Age inspiring guitar-wielding soft boys everywhere, and their debut album Is This It featuring on many a publication’s best list, The Strokes have plenty of hits to grace the Victoria Park stage with.
