All Points East 2022 - line-up, how to get there and how to get tickets

The London festival returns to Victoria Park with a stunning lineup

All Points East returns to London this month, with an exceptional line up of international artists joining some British favourites, making it one of the festivals of the summer.

Taking place once again at Victoria Park, the festival runs for six days across two weekends and sees the return of Australian psych-rockers Tame Impala and krautrock pioneers Kraftwerk.

With an Indian summer currently forecast throughout the month of August and Covid restrictions no longer present, the festival may reach its 40,000 capacity.

It looks to be one of the highlights of the British festival calendar, and for Londoners it’s all on your front doorstep.
