This event has been and gone.
All Points East are excited to reveal a very special collaboration for its final headliner, welcoming Mumford & Sons and their own Gentlemen of the Road event to Victoria Park this summer. An already phenomenal line-up of blockbuster summer shows gets even bigger as one of Britain’s biggest and best live bands Mumford & Sons concludes the festival line-up, and bring a host of their friends and favourite live artists to share the party.
The band, in a British festival exclusive, will hit Victoria Park on Saturday 1st June, and are proud to welcome British rap and grime pioneer Dizzee Rascal in support, Texas’ peerless R&B Grammy Award winner Leon Bridges, long-standing indie-rock favourites The Vaccines, and recent BRITs Critics’ Choice winner Sam Fender. The fast-rising Brit Jade Bird, Ireland’s favourite new son Dermot Kennedy, and Canadian dream-pop band Dizzy conclude the first acts to join Mumford & Sons for the first weekend of the festival season.
Mumford & Sons
One of the most successful acts to come out of the first decade of the 21st century's English folk revival, London's Mumford & Sons' agreeable fusion of bluegrass, folk, country, and rock has found favour with audiences all around the world. Formed in 2007 by singer / guitarist / drummer Marcus Mumford, vocalist and banjo / Dobro player Winston Marshall, vocalist / keyboardist Ben Lovett, and vocalist / bassist Ted Dwane, the quartet bonded over their shared love of roots music - their moniker is meant to invoke the impression of an antiquated family business name. At that time the West London folk scene was becoming increasingly vibrant with the arrival of fellow new traditionalists like Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale and Johnny Flynn but Mumford & Sons have gone on to outsell and outshine them all with their success!

Singer/Songwriter from Fort Worth (Texas) who blends southern soul with gospel. 'With his immaculate ‘60s suits and careful quiff, Leon Bridges looks like an expert in retro soul. The kind of performer who is so keen to tap into the spirit of The Temptations and Otis Redding, he spends all of his spare time in second-hand record shops, looking for old and dusty 45s' - BBC.co.uk

Underground dance master who stunned the UK garage scene with his debut album 'Boy In Da Corner' in 2003 which warped the sound into something dark, disturbing and deliciously innovative. Considered the most popular and influential Grime artist in the world, and also recognised as an innovator with his production style, Dizzee continues to innovate and surprise.

London-based four-piece The Vaccines firmly believe that less is more, with songs like 'Wreckin' Bar (Ra Ra Ra)' clocking in at under two minutes! Their fast and furious brand of giddy rock 'n' roll could almost be the sound of the Libertines and Ramones falling down the stairs at 100MPH. The band released their debut album What Did You Expect From The Vaccines in 2011, which became the biggest selling debut album by a band that year, while the 2012 follow up, Come Of Age, reached number one in the UK album charts. They have continued to have top 5 chart albums with 2015's English Graffiti and 2018's Combat Sports. "On record the Vaccines wallow in the echo-drenched wooziness made famous by the Jesus And Mary Chain, but live they reach back further through pop's past glories, stirring the shimmering girl group drama conjured by Phil Spector and scuzzed up by the Ramones." -The Guardian.

Dermot Kennedy is a singer and songwriter from Dublin who set out on his solo journey in September 2014. He crafts songs which are at once stripped-back yet explosive, his emotive vocals being both soaring and intimate with R&B influenced percussion. His tracks have amassed over 50 million plays across streaming platforms. "His voice is fusion of Gary Lightbody and Foy Vance, but it’s intensified by his addition of production and a slightly hip-hop leaning beat. But one thing was consistent - each song is a cataclysm of emotion" - Spindle Magazine.

2010 Mercury Prize nominees Villagers, fronted by the captivating Conor O'Brien, were billed in 2009 as the 6th 'best Irish act right now' by the Irish Times, before they'd even released a single song. A year later and debut album 'Becoming A Jackal' met with great critical acclaim, a brooding collection of fragile, emotional, dark and heartfelt songs blending acoustic, modern folk and alt-rock elements. Fans of Sparklehorse and Neil Young will find much to love in Villagers, along with an inevitable comparison to Bright Eyes (both lead singers are even called Conor!).

Very little has stood in the way of young North Shields artist Sam Fender and his rapid ascent since 2018. Having toured the UK and Europe relentlessly, building himself a loyal, passionate army of fans, Sam writes honestly and candidly about subjects of social and generational significance, broadly drawn from his experiences growing up in the North East of England. Sam wraps his pertinent words in rousing, propulsive, arena-sized guitar anthems and delivers them directly with a cavernous, powerful vocal.

The Staves are three English sisters whose soaring harmonies hark back to the sweet sounds of Crosby, Stills and Nash. They mould their love of Americana and folk into finely crafted tales of love and loss with gently finger-picked guitar and ukulele, and, at the forefront - their three unique voices.

Marika's music channels something very different to the happy-clappy nature of recent folk. Hers is a far more potent vision in the lineage of Syd Barrett, but presented by an enigmatic beauty with a striking vocal delivery more akin to that of Nico deftly exploring an unsmiling bereft landscape. Intrigue is at the heart of Marika's music, but there's something gloriously attainable about her as an artist, and her commitment to touring and meeting with a receptive audience who are searching for the very same antidotes to the challenges of modern life.

Jade Bird is fast becoming one of the most exciting new British voices. With her debut release the ‘Something American’ EP and 2018’s follow-up breakthrough single ‘Lottery’, Jade has won the hearts of people across the globe. She has already performed on ‘Later’ with Jools Holland, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and at SXSW she won the Grulke Prize for upcoming talent, following her win of the ANCHOR Prize at the Reeperbahn festival in 2017. Twisting big themes of disillusionment, divorce, cheating, sorrow into the realities of an independent-minded, modern British female, Jade’s music transcends genre with a wealth of influence coming from everywhere, and anywhere. Classic, contemporary, and a total breath of fresh air in the current musical landscape, Jade Bird is that rare, next-generation artist who appears as clued up on the past as she is determined to learn from its lessons: in control, sometimes in your face, and in possession of gifts beyond her years.

In February 2016, the then 17 year old Gretta Ray made an impressive entrance to the Australian music scene with the release of her debut EP ‘Elsewhere’, showcasing an enviable command of language and impressive vocal ability - due in no small part to her vast experience singing in choirs since the age of five. A creative individual who is as comfortable behind the camera as she is behind the guitar, Gretta Ray confesses to a fascination with human emotion and an irrepressible desire to express herself. 'Interpretational flexibility, with pop-facing sensibility retained, all representative of an artist rapidly honing her craft.' Rolling Stone
