Jamie xx and Kano have been announced as the first headliners for All Points East 2021, which is taking place in August instead of the festival's usual May dates.

After last year's All Points East was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, today (9 March) organisers have announced the first headliners for 2021 - Jamie xx and Kano.

The two headliners will perform at the third edition of All Points East on 28 August alongside slowthai, Tom Misch, Little Simz, Arlo Parks, Pa Salieu, Nubya Garcia, Romy, HAAi, Fred again.. and more.

The 2021 edition of the London festival is returning to Victoria Park, but instead of taking place across May, All Points East will take place in August following the announcement of the UK COVID-19 recovery roadmap a couple of weeks ago.

Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents, says, "It feels so great to finally be announcing our first day of All Points East 2021. 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."

Jamie xx and Kano will headline All Points East 2021 on 28 August. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (10 March) at 10am GMT. Visit for more information.
