The Kooks found fame back in 2006 with their no. 2 charting album Inside In / Inside Out which spawned hits 'She Moves in Her Own Way' and 'Naïve', among others. As though no. 2 wasn't good enough for a debut record, the band knocked it out of the park with follow up Konk, which made it to no. 1 in 2008. Back in 2018 they released their fifth record Let's Go Sunshine and in 2020 they are back and playing festivals across the UK.
Co-headlining with the Brighton four-piece is the Liverpudlian trio the Wombats. This indie band similarly found fame in the mid-00s with the release of their debut album A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation from which Top 40 hits 'Kill The Director', 'Let's Dance To Joy Division' and 'Moving To New York' were born. The band released their last album back in 2018 and, along with the Kooks, continue to champion the nostalgic indie-pop sounds of times gone by.
All Points East returns to London's Victoria Park for another year following 2019 headliners Christine and the Queens, Bon Iver, Florence & The Machine and more.
