All Points East kicks off in style with a memorable set from The Chemical Brothers

Hot Chip perform at All Points East 2019 📸 Joseph Eley

All Points East 2019 kicked off yesterday with career exhilarating performances from The Chemical Brothers, Primal Scream, Hot Chip, Kate Tempest, Róisín Murphy, Danny Brown, Little Simz and more. 

The Chemical Brothers headlined the East Stage to an ecstatic packed-out crowd. Following the release of their ninth studio album No Geography, the iconic electronic duo treated Victoria Park to an expansive multi-sensory performance – featuring 3D visuals, piercing lasers and even colossus robots on stage. 

Armed with a plethora of new music, the Chems kicked off proceedings with several new tracks including ‘MAH’ and the acid-infected number ‘Free Yourself’. The rapturously received LP was another hallmark of the duo’s illustrious creative output, who have firmly cemented themselves as one of electronic music’s most celebrated acts.

Of course, it wouldn’t have been a true Chemical Brothers performance without hits from their extensive back-catalogue. From the 1999 anthem ‘Hey Boy Hey Girl’ to the tessellating ‘Saturate’, it was a show that perfectly encapsulated each era of the Chems. ‘Galvanize’ was another fine example of their ability to create a track that is truly timeless, an impressive feat given their career spans 30+ years. 

Topping the bill on the North Stage was Primal Scream, whose legendary frontman Bobby Gillespie strolled out donning a striking pink suit before belting out a hit-filled set, culminating with a hat trick of ‘Loaded’, ‘Country Girl’ and ‘Get Your Rocks Off’. Never not without an esteemed entourage, Kate Moss, Florence Welch and Sadie Frost were among the famous faces in attendance. 

The opening day for the West Stage was closed by electronic alchemist Jon Hopkins, whose hypnotic visuals captivated a full house. Dropping tracks from his recent album Singularity intertwined with his crossover 2013 masterpiece Immunity, Hopkins’ continues to set the standard for live electronica that feels just as readymade for festivals as it does the dark confides of Fabric. 

Little Simz declared it felt good to be back on home turf in London during her performance, before launching into a mesmerising version of  ‘Therapy’, from her acclaimed new album Grey Area. Hip Hop auteur Danny Brown was up next, dressed head to toe in a matching floral suit and delighted the audience with a cover of Black Sabbath’s seminal  ‘Iron Man’, followed by a crowd pleasing ‘Ain’t It Funny’.

On the North Stage, Kate Tempest opened her captivating set poignantly with 2015’s prescient ‘Europe Is Lost’, before performing favourites from her revered last record Let Them Eat Chaos. No less than six new tracks followed, all taken from her forthcoming album The Book Of Traps And Lessons, due out next month.

Other key performances from yesterday included the beloved electro pop five piece Hot Chip who tore up the main stage with back to back hits, the transcendent live show from UK’s finest Spiritualized, while dance music’s most in demand producer Peggy Gou hosted the impressive RayBan Studios X Stage, closed in style by cherished club collective Optimo. Today we welcome The Strokes’ first UK show in four years, as well as The Raconteurs’ first UK festival slot in over eight years. Also featuring is Johnny Marr, Interpol, Parquet Courts and national treasure, Jarvis Cocker. Closing weekend one is pop icon for our time Christine & The Queens, headlining her first festival and biggest show to date.

The following weekend sees Bring Me The HorizonMumford & Sons and Bon Iver headline, with a supporting cast that includes Run The Jewels, Dizzee Rascal and John Grant.

HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES’ BRAND NEW SINGLE  “THE BOOGIEMAN SURPRISE”  OUT NOW

HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES’ BRAND NEW SINGLE “THE BOOGIEMAN SURPRISE” OUT NOW

HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES’ BRAND NEW SINGLE HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES’ BRAND NEW SINGLE “THE BOOGIEMAN SURPRISE” OUT NOW

Fresh off a triumphant seven-city North America tour this week, which included a stop at the famous Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, the Hollywood Vampires have unveiled the brand new song “The Boogieman Surprise.” At the aforementioned L.A. performance, Steven Tyler, the Aerosmith frontman and long-time musical partner of Joe Perry, turned up for a guest appearance, as did Marilyn Manson. Johnny Depp took lead vocals on Bowie’s “Heroes” and the “world’s most expensive bar band,” as proclaimed by Alice Cooper, delivered a live master class of rock ‘n’ roll, which included their newest track “The Boogieman Surprise.”

The songhas been part of the band’s live set since the 2018 world tour and is a highlight of every Hollywood Vampires live show. Written by the band, it features the undeniable chemistry between rock and roll royalty Perry,Hollywood superstar Depp and shock rock icon Cooper. A laid back groove, grinding guitars, and smooth strings create an epic, ominous, outsider anthem with Cooper’s vocal sounding as fierce as ever. Their stage telepathy is showcased inthe accompanying live video, filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival 2018.

Rise”, the band’s 2nd album, is some of the purest, unapologetic and most enjoyable rock and roll of the year, made by masters of the craft and true fans of the form.

Unlike their 2015 debut record, the new album “Rise” consists mainly of original material, written by the band. There are however, in the spirit of the Vampires’ original mission, three covers of songs originally written and recorded by some fellow rockers who died far too young: an intimate and intense version of David Bowie’s “Heroes”, again beautifully performed on record by Johnny Depp; the late Jim Carroll Band’s “People Who Died,” and Johnny Thunder’s “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory,” sung by Joe Perry.

Produced by Tommy Henriksen and the Hollywood Vampires, “Rise” is set to the most anticipated rock albums of 2019 will be released on June 21st, 2019 on earMUSIC as CD Digipak2LP+Download and Digital

In June 2017, New Order returned to the stage at Manchester’s Old Granada Studios where Joy Division made their television debut on Tony Wilson’s So It Goes programme in 1978.  For the celebrated show ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes .., New Order deconstructed, rethought and rebuilt a wealth of material from throughout their career: familiar and obscure, old and new. 

Featuring tracks such as Disorder, from Joy Divisions Unknown Pleasures and not played live for 30 years, up to 2015’s Plastic from New Order’s critically acclaimed Top 5 album Music Complete – this is the perfect document of those magical 5 nights.

This special series of intimate shows took over Stage 1 of Manchester’s iconic Old Granada Studios for five nights in June 2017. Created in collaboration with visual artist Liam Gillick, who has previously presented solo exhibitions at venues such as Tate Britain and MoMA in New York; and orchestrated by composer-arranger Joe Duddell, a fellow son of Manchester and a frequent collaborator with the band, the live show was performed by the band with a 12-strong synthesiser ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music.

Florence + The Machine / The National – More names announced!!

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park gets even stronger this summer with a host of stellar acts added to the bill for Florence + The Machine’s triumphant homecoming on Saturday July 13th. They headline alongside festival favourites and one of the most highly rated live acts around, The National. 
 
LA’s sweet and savage punk rockers Cherry Glazerr are on the bill. Led by the band’s indomitable frontwoman, Clementine Creevy, Cherry Glazerr are turbulent, tempestuous and truly joyful to catch live. They’re armed with new material from their third album Stuffed ‘n’ Ready, which came out earlier this year, so be prepared for a whirlwind of a show at BST Hyde Park.
 
Self Esteem is an experimental pop project, consisting solely of Rebecca Taylor. After a successful decade as one half of indie duo, Slow Club, Rebecca re-incarnated herself musically – now Self Esteem is the next chapter of her enthralling story. Taylor will be bringing her latest album Compliments Please into action, a record filled with wonderfully warm and intense vocals, with just the right level of sass!
 
Having lent her breath-taking vocals to greats like Gorillaz, SBTRKT, Shy FX, Machinedrum, Brasstracks and more, this year Roses Gabor sets out her stall as a solo artist of some genius. Her debut album Fantasy & Facts came out this February and sees Roses weaving her own artistic path – BST is happy to be along for the ride.
 
Connie Constance’s music has a neo-soul sheen and a bloody punk heart. Known for her energetic live performances, at times Constance’s serrated rasp sounds like it could tear out of her throat. The Watford born artist’s first album English Rose came out this year and was a long time in the making, featuring a stellar cast including Mura Masa, Kwesi Darko, Dave Okumu and Alfa Mist.
 
Mathilda Homer’s contemporary soul is formed by blending traditional influences with modern, creative production. Born to two established composers, music filled their family home and inspiration was found everywhere. With her latest EP Sunny Like You, the North London neo-soul singer provides a soul-cleansing jazz number that teases what is to come – we can’t wait to see it come to life in the summer sun at BST Hyde Park.
 
CC Honeymoon AKA Asher Preston is a pure, unfiltered musical vision, with each song rippling with wild sexuality and provocative artistry. His latest single ‘Make It Right’ is a stunning sneak peek of what’s to come at Hyde Park.
 
This host of extraordinary talent are joining Florence + The Machine and The National’s headlining show at Barclaycard present British Summer Time Hyde Park, as well as previously announced Lykke Li, Khruangbin and Nadine Shah, Blood OrangeAldous HardingMarlon WilliamsLet’s Eat Grandmaand Goat Girl.
 
It’s been a remarkable year for Florence, whose fourth album High As Hopealready has the feel of a career-defining moment. Florence’s recent tour in support of the album was greeted with across-the-board five-star reviews. With the album also landing Welch the third Mercury Prize nomination of her career, Florence + The Machine’s live return to London this summer should not be missed.
 
Sharing the stage are an American indie institution from Ohio, The National. With big plans this year, including a newly-announced album ‘I Am Easy To Find’ due out in May and an international tour, this will be their return to BST Hyde Park after their 2014 show with Neil Young.

More Special Guests Announced for THE STEVIE WONDER SONG PARTY at BST Hyde Park

More Special Guests Announced for THE STEVIE WONDER SONG PARTY at BST Hyde Park

More Special Guests Announced for THE STEVIE WONDER SONG PARTY at BST Hyde Park

Singer, songwriter, musician, and producer Stevie Wonder graces Hyde Park for the second time with “The Stevie Wonder Song Party: A Celebration of Life, Love & Music” on Saturday 6th July, 2019. Not only will he be joined by fellow legend Lionel Richie, now on Stevie’s 69th birthday, two outstanding artists have been added to the line up – Lianne La Havas and Corinne Bailey Rae.
 
Lianne La Havas burst into the scene in 2012 with her debut album ‘Is Your Love Big Enough’ which earned her a nominations in the BBC’s Sound Of poll and The Mercury Prize.  Her soulful jazz caught the ear of Prince who in 2014 featured La Havas on his album ‘Art Official Age’ after first turning up in her living room to play a gig!  Second album ‘Blood’ earned more acclaim with Grammy and BRIT nominations.  In recent times, she has been taking to social media to tease new music and is preparing for US shows. BST Hyde Park waits with excitement for her music both old and brand new on June 5th.
 
Corinne Bailey Rae is the Leeds soul queen and singer song writer who had a similar rapid rise to stardom and continues to create beautiful music in a myriad of ways.  2006’s debut album featured hits ‘Put Your Records On’ and ‘Like A Star’ and her second album ‘The Sea’ received a 2010 Mercury Prize nomination. The Guardian called her return ‘The Heart Speaks In Whispers’ “the best R&B of 2016” and she has recently turned her talents to film and television music including composing the theme to ‘Stan Lee’s Lucky Man’, recording ’The Scientist’ for the ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ film soundtrack and she duets on screen with Richard Hawley in the acclaimed independent film FUNNY COW. 
 
Stevie Wonder is one of the most celebrated and prominent figures in popular music who, at the age of 12, was the youngest recording artist to have achieved a #1 single with “Fingertips, Part 2”. To date he has amassed 49 Top Forty singles, 32 #1 singles and worldwide sales of over 100 million units. Stevie has won 25 Grammy Awards, the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.
 
As an activist, Stevie also spearheaded the realization of “Martin Luther King Day” as a national holiday. His participation in the “We Are The World” fundraiser for hunger in Africa was a music industry milestone and his involvement to put an end to apartheid in South Africa is legendary. He is the youngest recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors, and is a Commander of France’s National Order of Arts and Letters.
 
Stevie was awarded the Library of Congress’ Gershwin Prize for Popular Song where he performed his commission, “Sketches Of A Life,” which placed him in a very select group of eminent composers who have received library commissions, including Aaron Copeland, Leonard Bernstein and Paquito D’Rivera.
 
Stevie has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and he is a designated U.N. Messenger of Peace with special focus on persons with disabilities. He continues to be a pivotal influence in U.S. and world events, demonstrating the activism that has made him such a vital voice for social progress and world harmony.
 
Lionel Richie will be amongst the very special guests sharing the Great Oak Stage on July 6th. In December 2017, Stevie Wonder performed a cover of ‘Easy’ at Richie’s Kennedy Center Honours ceremony, which left Richie visibly emotional. He later said, “I got into the business because I wanted to be like Stevie Wonder, so for all of a sudden for Stevie to be singing my song, it was surreal.”
 
Lionel Richie has a discography of albums and singles that are second to none. His music is part of the fabric of pop music; in fact, Richie is one of only two songwriters in history to achieve the honour of having #1 records for nine consecutive years. Richie has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and is an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and four-time Grammy Awards winner. Lionel Richie is known for his early work with The Commodores as well as for his solo mega-hits including “Endless Love,” “Lady,” “Truly,” “All Night Long,” “Penny Lover,” “Stuck on You,” “Hello,” “Say You, Say Me,” “Dancing on the Ceiling,” and one of the most important pop songs in history, “We Are the World,” for USA for Africa. With his most recent All the Hits, All Night Long Tour, Richie sold out arenas worldwide with a set list of his brightest and best anthems. In recent years, he has also headlined festivals including Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, and Glastonbury, drawing the festival’s biggest crowd ever with more than 200,000 attendees. Richie was a judge on ABC’s American Idol and has returned to the ‘Judge’s’ chair for the 2019 season.  
 
Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019 is back for another year of unique shows and unforgettable music moments, for the 7thyear.

KIM PETRAS DROPS NEW POP BANGER  ‘SWEET SPOT’ AND ANNOUNCES  LONDON HEADLINE SHOW

KIM PETRAS DROPS NEW POP BANGER ‘SWEET SPOT’ AND ANNOUNCES LONDON HEADLINE SHOW

KIM PETRAS DROPS NEW POP BANGER ‘SWEET SPOT’ AND ANNOUNCES LONDON HEADLINE SHOW

Kim Petras has released her latest single ‘Sweet Spot’ (listen). The iridescent disco-pop number recalls the effervescence of her idol Kylie Minogue’s Fever era. After selling out her first-ever US headline tour during pre-sale, Kim is bringing the Broken Tour to Europe – including a show at London’s Omeara on 27 August. Tickets are on sale at 9.00AM GMT on Friday 17 May. For tickets and all live updates, visit kimpetras.com .

The tour kicks off in the UK on 23 August with her appearance at Leeds Festival, then to Manchester Pride on 24 August, Reading Festival on 25 August followed by her biggest UK headline show to date at Omeara, London on 27 August. Kim will then take the tour across to Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin before closing in her home town Cologne.

Kim’s new single ‘Sweet Spot’ follows hot on the heels of Broken (listen), which unveiled a more grounded, personal sound for Kim. ‘Broken’ has racked up over 2 million streams in two weeks, making more than 30 of Spotify’s global New Music Friday playlists and 45 of Apple Music’s Best of The Week playlists. Recognised as one of pop’s most prodigious talents, Kim has earned rave reviews for the singles in her new era, which include ‘Got My Number’ (listen) and ‘Blow It All’ (listen)

FADER – “‘Broken’ does sound and feel like a significant departure from everything in her catalogue thus far. A bit darker and more grounded, but still cathartic in its execution.”

Wonderland –With her classic powerhouse vocals and electro pop backing, it’s showing off her vulnerable side while simultaneously giving a big ‘fuck you’ to past lovers as she fires piercing lyrics over the nocturnal backing. A pop queen in the making.”

PAPER – “While “Broken” doesn’t possess the exact same treble-heavy energy listeners have gotten used to, there exists a similar sense of pop-thenticity that she’s cultivated as uniquely her own over the past year.”

Kim kicked off this year with a bang, headlining Sydney Mardi Gras and sold out her first headline shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Sydney, and Melbourne. While in Australia, Kim was also invited by Rita Ora to open on her Phoenix World Tour.

The rising star has to date racked up over 125 million global streams, broke into US Top 40 Radio with her infectious hit ‘Heart to Break’, and opened for Troye Sivan’s The Bloom Tour in North America.

Since her debut with the #1 Spotify Global Viral 50 bop ‘I Don’t Want It At All’, Kim has earned true cult status amongst pop music purists thanks to her brazen track record of fusing infectious melodies with heart-baring lyrics. She has earned critical praise from The Guardian, Independent, Noisey, NME, i-D, Pitchfork, The New York Times and many more. Kim’s Halloween-themed mixtape ‘TURN OFF THE LIGHT VOL. 1’ (listen) smashed through over 1 million streams within five days and have clocked up over 7.5 million streams to date.

As a transgender artist in mainstream media, Kim continues to break barriers for representation. She was recently nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Music Artist. Kim also made Forbes Europe’s 30 Under 30 list of fresh talent to watch for this year.

Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited acquire music catalogue from David A. Stewart

Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited acquire music catalogue from David A. Stewart

Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited acquire music catalogue from David A. Stewart

The Board of Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited and its Investment Adviser, The Family (Music) Limited, are pleased to announce that the Company has acquired a music catalogue from David A. Stewart. David A. Stewart is an English musician, songwriter, and record producer, best known for Eurythmics, his successful partnership with Annie Lennox.

David A. Stewart co-wrote and produced each of Eurythmics’ albums, including eight Top 5 and three Number 1 UK albums, which are estimated to have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. With Eurythmics, David A. Stewart co-wrote 13 US Number 1 singles, including ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)’, ‘Would I Lie To You’ and ‘There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart)’. According to the British Phonographic Institute (BPI), the iconic ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)’ is the most streamed song of any song originally released in 1983. Eurythmics were awarded the Ivor Novello Award for ‘Songwriters of the Year’ in 1984 and 1987 and ‘Best Contemporary Song’ in 1987 for ‘It’s Alright (Baby’s Coming Back)’, the 1987 Grammy Award for ‘Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal’ for ‘Missionary Man’ and the 1999 Brit Award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to British Music’. In 2005, both David A. Stewart and Annie Lennox were elected to the UK Music Hall of Fame.

Both during and following Eurythmics, David A. Stewart has produced and written songs with globally successful artists including Tom Petty on his US Number 3 ‘Don’t Come Around Here No More’, No Doubt on their US Number 1 ‘Underneath It All’, Shakespear’s Sister on ‘Stay’, which was a UK Number 1 for eight consecutive weeks, in addition to songs with Mick Jagger, Bono, Bob Dylan, Gwen Stefani, Bon Jovi, Stevie Nicks, Bryan Ferry, Katy Perry, Sinead O’Connor and Joss Stone. David A. Stewart has also had major successes as an artist, including the instrumental ‘Lily was Here’, a legendary duet with Candy Dulfer which was a global hit single and reached Number 6 in the UK.

David A. Stewart has been awarded ‘Best British Producer’ at the Brit Awards an unprecedented three times in 1986, 1987 and 1990. In addition he was awarded the 2004 Ivor Novello Award for ‘Outstanding Contemporary Song Collection’, a Golden Globe and Critics Choice Award in 2005 for ‘Old Habits Die Hard’ with Mick Jagger and Clive Davis’ ‘Legend in Songwriting Award’.

Hipgnosis has acquired 100% of David A. Stewart’s copyright interest in his catalogue, comprising 1,068 songs in total, which includes his writer’s, artist’s and producer’s share of income.

David A. Stewart was represented by manager, Dave Kaplan and attorney, Peter Paterno.

Merck Mercuriadis, Founder of The Family (Music) Limited and Hipgnosis Songs Fund Limited, said:

“This is an incredible moment for Hipgnosis. I have been lucky enough to know Dave since the summer of 1983 and I have spent most of those 35 years marvelling at his incredible work. I consider him to be one of the most important songwriters, artists and producers of all time. The work he and Annie did together as Eurythmics defines the 1980s and 1990s but still remains timeless today. He brought the same spirit to the Top 5 and Number 1 hits he produced and wrote with Tom Petty, No Doubt, Shakespear’s Sister and so many more. It’s an honour for Nile Rodgers and I to welcome Dave to our Advisory Board and to the Hipgnosis family. I’m not generally one for puns but sweet dreams are literally made of this.”

David A. Stewart said:

“Merck understands that without the song there is nothing and therefore holds songs with the utmost respect, hence understanding their impact on society and their long term value. He sees his company more like a song management company unlike many publishers who act more like a collection agency and wait for the money to pour in. I’m excited to be on the advisory board of this forward thinking company and sure we will have great success together.”

Dave Kaplan said:

“After putting everything in place during the negotiation, it was hard to imagine Dave’s iconic body of work could possibly have come from one human being in one lifetime (so far)! It would be tough to find anyone who values great songs and important artists more than Merck, who’s also a wickedly sharp dealmaker. This deal is monumental, and a perfect match.”

A BRAND NEW ORCHESTRAL VERSION OF THE WHO’S CLASSIC ALBUM

A BRAND NEW ORCHESTRAL VERSION OF THE WHO’S CLASSIC ALBUM

A BRAND NEW ORCHESTRAL VERSION OF THE WHO’S CLASSIC ALBUM TO CELEBRATE 50 YEARS SINCE THE ORIGINAL WAS FIRST RELEASED

In the of Summer 2018, Roger Daltrey and his band toured the USA performing The Who’s classic album ‘Tommy’ with some of the finest symphony orchestras that America has to offer, an experience that Daltrey described as ‘magical’.

Featuring a bold new orchestration by the renowned composer and arranger David Campbell (who has worked with Adele, Radiohead, Bob Dylan, Metallica, Carole King and his son Beck to name a few) this incarnation of Tommy celebrates the 50thanniversary of the album’s first release.

The album, which was recorded in Budapest and Bethel in upstate New York, the scene of the first Woodstock festival 50 years ago, was produced by Roger and Keith Levenson (who worked on the touring version of the Tommy Musical) and features the core band of Simon Townshend – Vocals / Guitar, Frank Simes – Guitar, Scott Devours – Drums, Jon Button – Bass, and Loren Gold – keyboards, all of whom have played with The Who live. Keith Levenson conducted The Budapest Scoring Orchestra from new orchestrations by David Campbell.

Since it was first debuted at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in Soho London in early May 1969, Tommy has had many different live outings; it was performed in full at the Woodstock and Isle Of Wight Festivals in 1969, it was the basis for a ballet in Canada in 1970, it was a full-blown opera in Seattle in 1971, in 1972 it was recorded as an orchestral piece by the London Symphony Orchestra featuring Stevie Winwood, Rod Stewart, Richie Havens, Pete Sellers and Ringo Starr, there was the infamous 1975 movie directed by Ken Russell starring Elton John, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Ann Margaret, Oliver Reed, Jack Nicholson and Roger Daltrey. After that, the band didn’t perform it again until 1989 in Los Angeles when guests such as Phil Collins, Billy Idol, Elton John & Patti Labelle were part of the show. In 1993 the musical version opened on Broadway and won five Tony awards before transferring to The West End where it went on to win three Olivier awards.

The band played it in full, for what they have said is the last time for the Teen Cancer Trust at The Royal Albert Hall in 2017 but will be performing parts of their classic rock opera when they play London’s Wembley Stadium on July 6th with a full symphony orchestra.

Roger Daltrey on Tommy’s enduring appeal after 50 years and why it sounds better with an orchestra ‘Pete’s music is particularly suited to being embellished by the sounds that an orchestra can add to the band. Tommy can mean whatever you want it to mean, I use the characters in it as metaphors for parts of the human condition, so it’s a kind of a story of the human spirit. Even though it is 50 years on, I approach it as though I’m singing it for the first time.’

Conversation with Nick Cave- North American Dates Announced

Conversation with Nick Cave- North American Dates Announced

Conversation with Nick Cave- North American Dates Announced

Following a short debut run on the East coast early last year, Nick Cave brings his evenings of talk and music back to North America for a full tour.

Having recently taken this special show to sold out venues in Australia & New Zealand, and with a sell out tour of the UK and Europe to come this Spring, Cave will return to North America in the Fall. During this series of music and open discussion events, he will take questions direct from the audience on all manner of subjects and perform some of his most beloved songs on piano.

Described by Cave as “an exercise in connectivity”, no subject is sacred and audiences are encouraged to be bold and challenging, confrontational and unafraid.

The relationship between Cave and his audience has always been open and intense, but deepened during his recent shows with the Bad Seeds, inspiring these unconventional and unique evenings of unfiltered, unscripted and unmoderated Q&A.

I thought that a direct conversation with the audience might be valuable – in the recent live shows we have all shown a kind of willingness to open up.Nick Cave

“Between stark, gorgeous performances of key songs like ‘Skeleton Tree’, ‘The Mercy Seat’ and ‘God Is In The House’, Cave was wry, genial and funny as hell.” Billboard

“This is a striking turnaround when you’re used to seeing icons in all their bombast and mythos. Here, you are getting them unmediated by journalists, you are getting them in an unfiltered and unedited form, you are getting them in a human state without the guise of stardom in full-force.” Stereogum

“Watching a legend in command of an audience, never quite knowing what would happen next, was a genuine thrill.” Sydney Morning Herald

“…tonight’s not about being right. It’s about being present, knowable, vulnerable and real. And funny. Always that.” The Guardian

“A complete dismantling of the barriers put in place thanks to his often mysterious image…

Nick Cave’s intimate Conversations show is bold, enlightening and completely gripping.” ABC

UK EXCLUSIVE HEADLINE SHOW FOR 2019 DEBUT FESTIVAL HEADLINE PERFORMANCE
TAKING PLACE AT ALL POINTS EAST

All Points East is thrilled to announce the addition of Sleeping With Sirens to the incredible Bring Me The Horizon headline show – SWS’s only UK date this summer.

Hailing from Florida, USA, Sleeping With Sirens have quietly pushed the envelope since the release of their 2010 debut, With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear – picking up a legion of fans along the way. Their most recent full-length Gossip saw the band reach the artistic heights they began angling for nearly 10 years ago, while amplifying musical hallmarks such as soaring and soul-striking vocals, wildly catchy riffing, and intricate beats.

“We’re stoked to come back to London and rock All Points East with such an amazing line-up”, said frontman Kellin Quinn.

As summer approaches, this is a great time to catch them on-stage, as Kellin took to Twitter this week to announce their 6th album is in the can and sounding amazing. He also hinted at a return to a heavier sound and the likelihood of a sneak preview at All Points East is on the cards.

Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes also shared his excitement – “We’re delighted to announce Sleeping With Sirens as the final addition to our day at All Points East. This will be their only UK date this summer.”

Oli then discussed his band’s own anticipated performance, “We are looking forward to closing the show with our only UK headline show of 2019 and will be doing an exclusive, career-spanning, 2-hour set to celebrate – something we’ve never done before. We are all looking forward to an amazing day.”

Also announced today are additions to the Firestone Stage for the day.

Once a quartet, now a duo, Scottish band Vukovi have debuted their new look this year on a short UK tour before locking the studio door to craft their new album.  But don’t worry, vocalist Janie Shilstone promises the sound will not change too much, with their usual giant riffs to the fore.

Joining them are industrial punks Black Futures for a hometown London show. The band teamed up with Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie in February to release the socially conscious track ‘Me.TV’ that will feature on their debut album.  They also supported Frank Turner & The Rattlesnakes on tour and look to make 2019 their breakthrough.

PENGSHUi also take to the Firestone Stage with the combustible mix of metal, hip hop and dance music fused into one cohesive sound. Growing up playing metal, the trio have since collaborated with a host of bass / hip hop names such as Goldie, Flux Pavilion and Foreign beggars.

Finally, tiLLie joins the throng. The Atlanta singer (backed by Radio 1’s Annie Mac) has been described as anti-pop, releasing the EP Loud Mouth in March – and is currently touring with fellow APE act Yonaka.

All these amazing bands join an already formidable list of names playing on the 31st, all expertly curated by headliners Bring Me The Horizon. BMTH themselves need little introduction by this point: as one of the UK’s highest-profile heavy bands, they have done more than most to take metal into the public eye. Their most recent album amo, released in January of this year, topped the UK Albums Chart.

Also playing are metalcore titans Architects, the politically incendiary US rap duo Run the Jewels, alt rock band Nothing But Thieves, punk rock men of the moment Idles, electropunk singer-songwriter Alice Glass, Sheffield metal band While She Sleeps, hardcore group Employed to Serve, trap metal star Scarlxrd, rock upstarts Yonaka and Glasgow band Lotus Eater.

East London’s beautiful Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets also hosted a hugely popular 4-day community focused midweek event last year. Kicking off on the second Bank Holiday Monday, In The Neighbourhood is set to return across the half term week for 2019. Featuring free access to the All Points East site, In The Neighbourhood will host a vibrant programme of activities and entertainment, in collaboration with the local community, businesses, organisations and suppliers. From free Outdoor Cinema, Live Music & Entertainment, Street Food to Pop Up Bars, Theatre, Arts, Sports & Wellbeing, Children’s Activities and much more.

A truly unique festival environment, an excellence in production, facilities, hospitality and customer service unlike anything seen before in Victoria Park will underpin the entirety of the 10 day event. From the team behind events such as Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park, and the world’s number one venue The O2, the highest standards will be stamped across every aspect of the event.

Fresh from releasing Drillers X Trappers II,his dark, unsparing collaborative project with fellow rapper RV, Headie has returned to solo work with a bang. ‘All Day’ has the same intensity as ‘18 Hunna’ (ft Dave) that became the first drill track to reach the top 10 of the UK Singles Charts.

The video’s powerful visuals come courtesy of KC Locke, who’s previously worked with Skepta, IAMDDB, Yxng Bane and Shakka.

Taken from his forthcoming mixtape this summer, Headie plays live at Wireless, Reading & Leeds and Glastonbury

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park Awarded Gold Status for Attitude is Everything’s Charter of Best Practice

Award recognises long term commitment to improving access for Deaf and disabled music fansDeaf and disabled music fans

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park has been awarded Gold Status for Attitude is Everything’s Charter of Best Practice, recognition of the event’s long-term and continued commitment to inclusivity and access for Deaf and disabled people. The news comes in the same year that the event won both Customer Service and Ticketing Without Barriers (Venue/Event) at the 2019 Outstanding Attitude Awards.

Event organiser AEG Presents has partnered with Attitude Is Everything, a charity that works to improve access to live music for Deaf and disabled people since 2013. The Charter of Best Practice goes beyond the legal obligations set out in the Equality Act to set out a framework aiming to provide a truly fair and equal service for Deaf and disabled customers.

BST Hyde Park was also recognised at the charity’s Outstanding Attitude Awards in March, winning the Customer Service and Ticketing Without Barriers (Venue/Event) awards.

Just as the range of brilliant, varied acts performing across the event reflects commitment to providing music all can enjoy, so too do its access initiatives reflect the same philosophy:  allowing everyone to appreciate the performances as much as possible.

AEG Presents initiatives to this effect include three accessible viewing areas over two stages and roaming drinks vendors at The Great Oak Stage and The Barclaycard Stage – all of which can also be enjoyed with a friend or family member with the use of an interchangeable, free Personal Assistant Pass. British Sign Language interpreters for all acts on The Great Oak Stage, accessible toilets at every toilet block, Hearing Induction Loops, free Personal Assistant tickets for all ticket types and a dedicated access hub and entrance. All pre-event information is available in audio and easy read versions and there is a dedicated access customer service team available all year via e mail and phone.  AEG Presents will also continue to push their successes in 2019 with the introduction of guided tours for those requiring additional assistance navigating the site.

All pre-event information is available in audio and easy read versions and there is a dedicated access customer service team available all year via e mail and phone. Plus you can watch their ever so handy Accessibility route video HERE.

Paul Hawkins, Attitude is Everything’s Festivals and Volunteering Manager said: “We’ve been working with AEG and BST Hyde Park for over five years and have been impressed by how the festival have developed their access over this time. Accessibility works best when it something that all staff members engage in, from a senior level to frontline staff, and this is certainly the case with Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park. We have been particularly impressed with how the festival has engaged with staff training around access, provided fantastic customer service on the ground and implemented our Charter recommendations, as well as the clear ambition to be as accessible as they can possibly be. AEG have been a fantastic company to work with and we are confident that, even with the gold award, they will continue to raise the bar for access to ensure all customers have the best experience possible at the shows.”

Alun Mainwaring, Head of Events and Filming at The Royal Parks, said: ‘We are very proud of this achievement, there is a huge amount of planning and preparation that both AEG Presents and The Royal Parks put into ensuring British Summer Time Hyde Park is inclusive and enjoyed by all. London’s Royal Parks fulfil an important function as public amenities for everyone, it is very important that the events we host follow this ethos. This Gold Status shows that this hard work has been recognised.’

Jenny Hamada, Senior Event Manager at AEG Presents said: “Making sure our events are open to all is a top priority of ours, and we believe it truly sets us apart from our competitors. Recognition from Attitude is Everything, who we’ve worked with for many years, is a heartening sign that these efforts are making a real difference.”

MUMFORD & SONS BRING THEIR GENTLEMEN OF THE ROAD EVENT TO VICTORIA PARK IN A COLLABORATION WITH ALL POINTS EAST

All Points East and Gentlemen of the Road have announced another exciting wave of new acts supporting Mumford & Sons’ UK festival exclusive in Victoria Park on Saturday 1st June. The event heralds a truly special collaboration with All Points East and Mumford & Sons’ own Gentlemen of the Road,and today we share a fresh selection of hand-picked support acts by the band.

Villagers are festival staples – and as their bewitching, poignant songs attest, for a very good reason. The Dublin group’s records are held in high esteem as well, with two Mercury Prize nominations and two Ivor Novellos to their name. Their latest album The Art of Pretending to Swim was released in September 2018 to widespread acclaim.

British sisters The Staves consist of Jessica, Camilla and Emily Staveley-Taylor. Renowned across the world for their exquisite harmonies and sublime, folk-informed song craft, this trio also bring with them a wicked sense of humour. As long-term collaborators with Bon Iver and their friends Mumford & Sons, and recent tour support to the like-minded First Aid Kit, The Staves excel on the big stage, and promise to be a real highlight amongst the day’s performers.

Having formed her first band during school, Marika Hackman was clearly destined to be a success. Her dark, melancholy style of folk has bewitched many, and her recent turn towards a much slicker, sassy pop sound evidenced on her new earworm, ‘I’m Not Where You Are’, promises another unmissable set in Victoria Park.

Fast-rising Alan Power’s music is inspired by traditional country, but also includes influence from strands of post punk and experimental styles. He recently released his first musical offering to the world, the four-track Ep 1.

Delilah Montagu is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Hampshire. Influenced by The Smiths, James Blake, Joni Mitchell and Bon Iver among others, she’s been working with some popular names including the likes of Tom Odell, Justin Hayward-Young of The Vaccines, Diplo and Tim Rice-Oxley of Keane to develop a sound that’ll be sure to captivate Victoria Park.

Another new artist worthy of your immediate attention is alt-pop duo from Glasgow, HYYTS who are quickly building momentum as their singular sound attracts more and more attention. The duo have only released a handful of singles so far, and even graced the stage in support of Boy George in their hometown. Alan Power, Delilah Montagu and HYYTS are all playing The Firestone Stage.

Mumford & Sons will also be joined by a host of already announced names: grime pioneer Dizzee Rascal, Texas’s 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, Australian singer Gretta Ray and Canadian dream-pop band Dizzy will also play.

There’s also plenty going on in Victoria Park in between the two weekends. All Points East have recently announced their VAST (and totally FREE) In the Neighbourhood programme, taking place across the Spring Bank Holiday and half term week from Monday 27th to Thursday 30th May. There’ll be four fun-packed days of midweek fun, including an outdoor cinema, local live music and entertainment, irresistible street food, craft beer fair, film screening panels, theatre, sports & wellbeing activities, children’s theatre and much more. Did we mention, ALL of the activities are free!?

KIM PETRAS RETURNS WITH DEEPLY PERSONAL NEW SINGLE: ‘BROKEN’

KIM PETRAS RETURNS WITH DEEPLY PERSONAL NEW SINGLE: ‘BROKEN’

KIM PETRAS RETURNS WITH DEEPLY PERSONAL NEW SINGLE: ‘BROKEN’

*** The first taster from her new era ***

*** Kim Petras performs at Manchester Pride on 24 August***

Kim Petras has unveiled the eagerly-anticipated first single from her new era ‘Broken’ (listen here). The deeply personal new track shows a more vulnerable side to the ‘Heart to Break’ singer, who had previously collaborated with the likes of Charli XCX, SOPHIE and Cheat Codes.

On ‘Broken’, Kim’s signature powerhouse vocals soar over nocturnal urban beats, as she fires barbed lines at her ex: “Hope you’re happy with your new bitch, how you livin’? I’m in Paris in Marc Jacobs, life’s amazin’. When she leaves you for your best friend, that’s your karma.”

The rising singer-songwriter will be returning to the UK to perform at Manchester Pride on 24 August. Kim kicked off 2019 with a bang, releasing the final singles from her first era: ‘1,2,3 dayz up’ (feat. SOPHIE), ‘Homework’ (feat. lil aaron) and ‘If U Think About Me…’. She also played a string of sold-out headline shows in Australia, where she also co-headlined Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and opened for Rita Ora in concert. She also announced a series of solo shows in North America – with European live dates to follow very soon. For all the latest tour dates visit: kimpetras.com

Since Kim broke out with ‘Heart to Break’, she has earned true cult status amongst pop music purists thanks to her brazen track record of fusing infectious melodies with heart-baring lyrics. She has amassed over 125 million streams to date, supported Troye Sivan on tour, and earned critical praise from The Guardian, Independent, Noisey, NME, i-D, Pitchfork, The New York Times and many more. Kim’s Halloween-themed mixtape ‘TURN OFF THE LIGHT VOL. 1’ (listen) smashed through over 1 million streams within five days and have clocked up over 7.5 million streams to date.

As a transgender artist in mainstream media, Kim continues to break barriers for representation. She was recently nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Music Artist, alongside Years & Years, Janelle Monáe, and Christine & The Queens. Kim also made Forbes Europe’s 30 Under 30 list of fresh talent to watch for this year and InStyle’s “Badass 50 Women” list, honouring women who are changing the world.

“Kim Petras is every inch the total pop princess” – NME

“Defiantly hedonistic pop music” – The Guardian

“A true, unapologetic poptimist” – Noisey

“If there’s one pop starlet to watch, it’s definitely Kim Petras” – i-D

“Future pop icon” – Music Week
