plus details of 4 new state of the art stages
London's All Points East have added a further 10 acts to the line up for this year's festival: Belgian electro heroes Soulwax who will bring their incredible multi-drummer live show to Victoria Park. House and hip-hop fuser Yaeji, renowned British dance duo Maribou State, future star of UK hip hop Jesse James Solomon and Tel Aviv post-punkers Bones Garage. Also joining the bill are Daft Punk-produced Aussies Parcels, French duo Her R&B queens Kelela and Abra, London rapper Octavian and NTS resident DJ DEBONAIR also join the huge lineup.
In addition to a great line up All Points East aims to provide unparalleled festival production and some incredibly unique staging concepts:
The X Stage is an ambitious, new ‘in the round’ festival experience placing the finest electronic talent in the heart of the action and enveloping the crowd in sound from all angles. The East Stage (main stage) will be framed by full-height state of the art screens to allow the best possible viewing experience, no matter where they are positioned in the main arena. The West Stage is the main indoor performance arena will houses state-of-the-art lighting comprising 97 moving lights and another 50 generic lights on stage and throughout the venue. The North Stage, inspired by many of the world’s most beautiful theatres, is formed of concentric arches and 50 moving lights that will provide a visually stunning backdrop.
James King, Festival Director says:
“Every stage at All Points East is designed to offer fans a different experience wherever they are on the site and at whatever time of the day it may be. Lighting and video are essential to delivering an ever changing and evolving production and live experience. We want the stages to feel unique for every performance so the artists can deliver their own personal vision to their fans, making each set stand out from the last.
To achieve this the East Stage will host a large scale LED screen setup to provide a huge canvas for each artist to deliver their own look and bespoke feel supporting their live performance. The North stage takes inspiration for many of the world’s greatest theatres where concentric arches help achieve lighting spectacles rarely seen outdoors.
The West Stage is simply a full on indoor immersive production set up where large scale lighting and LED combine with great sound and a break from the sun. The X Stage is a new exciting design specifically created for All Posts East. We wanted one of the best quad based systems in the world to deliver a sound field much like the very best clubs did back in the day.
These 4 stages are just the start. The great thing is, there is more to come….”
