All Points East have announced their first wave of acts – including all six headliners – for next year's double weekender in London.

Across six days between August 19 – 28, 2022, a huge genre-spanning mix of artists will hit London's Tower Hamlets, with some of the biggest names including Gorillaz, IDLES, The Chemical Brothers, Kraftwerk, The National, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds.

“Last summer showed how much we missed All Points East, so it’s hugely exciting to not just launch 2022, but to be able to announce all six incredible headliners, and more artists across the two weekends, in one go," says Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents.

"It’s also great to welcome back Field Day after the huge success of their All Points East Presents show last summer. All 6 event days and the midweek In The Neighbourhood community programme make 2022 the biggest All Points East to date.”
