All Points East
(Friday 24th May – Sunday 26th May)
Kicking off festival season in London with artists ranging from indie electro group Hot Chip to French pop sensation Christine and the Queens, All Points East festival is selling out fast. The festival takes places across two weekends so if you can’t make the first, the second is sure to be equally as exciting across all 4 stages. The street food market alone might just be enough to entice you to Victoria Park over these weekends, with Vegan junk food as well as an entire vendor dedicated to mac & cheese as just two of the options around for your post gig carb cravings.
You can buy all weekend passes or singular day tickets here. (allpointseastfestival.com/tickets/)
