East London’s All Points East festival has announced that The Kooks and Wombats are set to headline on Saturday 30 May.
The two iconic British indie bands will be taking to the stage in Victoria Park on the same day as Tom Walker and Jake Bugg.
The two bands aren’t the only big names heading-up All Points East’s 2020 lineup. Tame Impala is set to headline on 23 May, while Dusseldorf electro pioneers Kraftwerk play on Friday 29 May and Massive Attack headline on Sunday 24 May.
All Points East is one of the biggest festivals in London. Last year, they put on a killer lineup with the Chemical Brothers, the Strokes, and Christine and the Queens headlining.

If you’re planning to head to All Points East on Saturday 23 May to see Tame Impala, you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of some exciting support artists including Caribou and Lapsley.
Kraftwerk fans heading to Victoria Park on Friday 29 May will be able to see Iggy Pop and Johnny Marr take to the stage. Massive Attack, playing on Sunday 24 May, are supported by Nils Frahm, Neneh Cherry, and Young Fathers, among others.
All Points East is still yet to announce lineups for Friday 22 May and Sunday 31 May. Given last year’s lineup, and the strong start to the 2020 billing, we’re expecting another bill of amazing artists from the festival.
If you’re planning on seeing Tame Impala and Massive Attack or Kraftwerk and The Kooks on successive days, you might be disappointed – All Points East is strictly a day festival. This shouldn’t be surprising, however, given Victoria Park’s proximity to London’s densely packed Tower Hamlets area.
Tickets start from £39.95 (+ booking fee), and there are a range of ticket upgrades available, such as the ‘Primary Entry’ package, which gives you entry half an hour before the hoi polloi.
