Goldenvoice, the folks who run none other than Coachella, FYF, and Panorama, announced a behemoth new festival-conference hybrid set to take place in London in 2018. Called All Points East, the event as a whole will span thirteen days – three days for the festival portion, ten days for the conference portion – and will make its debut in Victoria Park from Wednesday, May 23, to Sunday, June 3, 2018.

London natives The xx will headline the main festival, along with Popcaan and Lykke Li, with more musical announcements to come. For many Britons, this could very well become a new way to kick off the summer festival season – especially because Glastonbury's fallow year will leave a gaping hole in the festival schedules of many music lovers.

There will be six stages set up to host All Points East's sure-to-be eclectic lineup. More information is scheduled to be released this month. The main festival, Friday, May 25, to Sunday, May 27, kicks off community-focused programming and musical entertainment. There will be three stand-alone shows during the conference portion – the first of which has been announced for Saturday, June 2, headlined by The National alongside The War On Drugs, Future Islands, Warpaint, and The Districts.

Stay tuned for more musical and conference programming announcements from All Points East!
