Brand new London festival All Points East has officially announced its first wave of acts to join the impressive lineup.

LCD Soundsystem and Björk will join The xx and Ohio indie rockers The National as headliners for the huge new event taking place in East London's Victoria Park over the May bank holiday weekend.

Joining LCD Soundsystem is a bill full of standout acts including Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, Glass Animals and electronic pioneer Richie Hawtin.

The following day will see sets from the likes of Lorde, Lykke Li and Mercury Prize winner Sampha while Icelandic icon Björk will be supported by Beck, Flying Lotus and Father John Misty.

All Points East will take place from 25-27 May 2018 kicking off a ten-day event in Victoria Park designed as a major part of Tower Hamlets' bid to become London's Borough of Culture.

The event will culminate on 1 June with a day of performances from The National, The War on Drugs, Future Islands and Warpaint.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 3 November. You can find more details - including the current lineup - here.
