All Points East have today (26 March) announced even more names for their 2019 events.

The epic ten day event returns to East London, and it’s bigger than ever. After selling out in its first year, they’ve announced more acts to join their formidable lineup that is set to do more than just match the standard of their inaugural event. Today, they’ve released details of the additions to it’s first weekend, running from 24-26 May.

On Friday 24 May, poetic-rap powerhouse Kate Tempest takes to the Victoria Park stage alongside The Chemical Brothers, Steve Mason, and the enigmatic Jadu Heart. The eclectic line-up on the day also comprises the brilliant Ibibio Sound Machine (who we caught at The 100 Club this month, see the review and pictures here), Little Simz, Primal Scream and Hot Chip.

A plethora of alt-rock and indie talent has been added to the 25 May bill too. The brilliant Fat White Family and their scuzzy, chaotic blend of post-punk, rock and psych will dominate the stage with their legendary live show. Amyl and the Sniffers will bring their pub-punk power, Dream Wife’s refreshingly unapologetic sound will get you moshing, Temples will take you into a trippy psychedelic dream while Yak will take you on a white-knuckle ride with their live set. Yala! Records also will curate a stage for the Saturday bill, comprising Our Girl, BC Camplight and Willie J Healey. These new additions join the already first-class line-up of The Strokes, The Raconteurs, Interpol, Johnny Marr, Courtney Barnett, Jarvis Cocker, Anna Calvi, Parquet Courts, Connan Mockasin, Viagra Boys, Bakar and The Nude Party - an unmissable day for sure.

On Sunday 26 May, Christine and the Queens will be joined by rising Dublin rapper Kojaque, who combines jazz-inflected hip-hop beats with a poetic turn of phrase that chronicles everyday Dublin life. There will also be an as-yet-unrevealed special guest joining at a prominent spot on the billing. Also playing on that day are: James Blake, Metronomy, Maribou State, Kamasi Washington, Beach House, Honne, Kurt Vile, Princess Nokia, Ezra Collective, Toro y Moi, Rina Sawayama, Bob Moses, Andrew Weatherall, Yves Tumor (full band) and many more.
