London-based music festival All Points East has announced plans for its 2021 return as the U.K. aims to return to normality. Like all music festivals, All Points East was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related lockdown measures, while the future of such events was up for debate at the start of this year.

All Points East has pushed this year’s festival back to late August compared to its regular slot in late May or early April. Additionally, the festival has announced the first raft of artists who will be performing this year, with Saturday to be headlined by Jamie XX and Kano. The bill for Saturday also features rising stars such as Pa Salieu and Arlo Parks alongside the likes of Fred again.., Slowthai and Little Simz.

Announcing Saturday’s lineup, Jim King, the CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents, which organizes All Points East, said, “The chance to be back in the summer sun in Victoria Park is itself alone a reason to celebrate. The fact we are coming back with such a great first line up announcement makes this an even sweeter moment. There are some exciting changes this year, including our move to the August Bank Holiday weekend. We welcome two sensational co-headliners for the Saturday, Jamie xx and Kano, as well as a host of amazing artists. We can’t wait to welcome back live music in the UK and be back dancing with you all later this summer.”

Tickets for the Saturday at All Points East are due to go on sale via the All Points East site at 10AM GMT (5AM EST).
