Bjork, LCD Soundsystem, The xx and The National have been confirmed as the four headliners for the new 10-day All Points East Festival
Bjork and LCD Soundsystem will join The xx and The National to headline the All Points East Festival.
The quartet will be the main acts for the brand-new 10-day event in east London's Victoria Park from May 25 to June 3, 2018, with the likes of Beck, Lykke Li, Father John Misty and Warpaint also on the bill.
LCD Soundsystem - who split in 2011 before getting back together in 2015 - will headline the first ever night of the music event on Friday May 25, supported by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, and Glass Animals.
'I Dare You' hitmakers The xx will take to the stage the following night to complete a day of music action, which will also feature Lorde and Rex Orange County.
Bjork will close out the weekend's performers on the Sunday night after fans have listened to sets from Beck, Father John Misty, Flying Lotus 3D, and Alexis Taylor, among others.
The music then returns to Victoria Park less than a week later as The National headline on Saturday June 2, 2018, with special guests The War on Drugs and Future Islands.
The US rockers are planning something big to make the event a special one for their fans.
They said: "After a thrilling four sold out shows at the Eventim Apollo in September, we are excited to take over Victoria Park next summer.
"We are already thinking about ways to make this more than just a show."
Pre-sale tickets for the All Points East Festival are on sale on Wednesday (01.11.17) at 9am.
