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.

Note To Editors:

All Points East returns for a stellar second year to Tower Hamlets’ Victoria Park, following a sold-out 2018 debut that established a new and essential music event in central London.

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

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

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.

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

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

New names added for Bring Me The Horizon at All Points East

New names added for Bring Me The Horizon at All Points East

New names added for Bring Me The Horizon at All Points East

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.

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.”

Eleven Seven Label Group Managing Director Europe Dan Waite added to Kline’s comments, “The Hu will perform in 12 European countries in June and July, playing to hundreds of thousands of festival fans this summer. With 2 tracks in the UK iTunes genre top 10 currently this is perfect timing to satisfy the demand to see the band. The excitement building up reflects the compelling blend of music and Mongolian culture”.
 
The HU said, “We couldn’t be more excited to join the amazing team at E7M.  The passion they have for The HU can be felt from New York to Mongolia and we’re excited to do great things together.”

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!?

Barbra Streisand Special Guests Announced!

Barbra Streisand Special Guests Announced!

Barbra Streisand Special Guests Announced!

Year after year, Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park brings the greatest artists to the stage in Hyde Park. This year, a true icon, pioneer and one of the most important artists of the last half-century will make her BST Hyde Park debut – Barbra Streisand. As a European exclusive, she will be sharing songs old and new for her first concert in this country for 6 years.

Joining Barbra Streisand at this incredibly special show are two legends in their own right: Bryan Ferry and Kris Kristofferson

The frontman for one of Britain’s most influential bands, Roxy Music, brought Bryan Ferry prominence as one of Britain’s most distinctive music artists, but also carved out a hugely successful solo career that continues in typically sophisticated manner to this day.  This weekend, he reunited with his Roxy Music bandmates to perform at their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.  At Hyde Park, he will be armed with iconic solo hits ‘Let’s Stick Together’ and ‘Slave To Love’, as well as Roxy classics ‘Ladytron’, ‘Avalon’ and ‘Love Is The Drug’, along with that one-off voice.

Kris Kristofferson is a country musician with an unbelievable history; he excelled at Oxford University and in the US Army before pursuing his passion as a songwriter. His songs ‘Me and Bobby McGee’, ‘Help Me Make It Through the Night’ and ‘Sunday Morning Coming Down’, all chart-topping hits, helped redefine country songwriting. His talents as a musician sparked the interest of Hollywood, leading him to flourish as an award-winning actor. Heralded as an artist’s artist, the three-time Grammy winner has recorded 29 albums, including three with pals Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings as part of the Highwaymen. In 1977, Kristofferson co-starred alongside Streisand in “A Star Is Born” which went on to win numerous awards including 5 Golden Globes for Best Actress (Streisand), Best Actor (Kristofferson), Best Film, Best Original Song and Best Original Score. Also, Streisand became the first female composer to win a best song Oscar for ‘Evergreen’ from the film.  

Barbra Streisand, known for her hit songs – ‘Guilty’, ‘Woman In Love’, ‘The Way We Were’, ‘No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)’, ‘Don’t Rain On My Parade’, ‘People’, ‘Evergreen’, ‘Papa Can You Hear Me?’ and many more – Streisand is the epitome of original. She is just as famous for her film career, her activism and theatre stardom. She has won 2 Oscars, 10 Grammys (including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award), 11 Golden Globes, 5 Emmys, 3 Peabodys, a DGA award, the Tony Award for Star of the Decade, the American Film Institute Award, the Kennedy Center Honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the National Medal of Arts, and France’s Legion of Honour.

She has had Number 1 albums in each of the last six decades – the greatest longevity for any solo recording artist with 11 US Number 1 albums, 6 in the UK and is simply one of the best loved and most decorated artists in any medium alive today. Now one of the world’s biggest stars will light up Hyde Park to bring the first sensational weekend to a close. 

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019 is back for another year of unique shows and unforgettable music moments, for the 7th year.

Headliners for Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019 are Celine Dion (5th July), Stevie Wonder (6th July), Florence and the Machine / The National (13th July) and Robbie Williams (14th July).

SPECIAL GUESTS ANNOUNCED FOR  BON IVER AT ALL POINTS EAST

SPECIAL GUESTS ANNOUNCED FOR BON IVER AT ALL POINTS EAST

SPECIAL GUESTS ANNOUNCED FOR BON IVER AT ALL POINTS EAST

All Points East have announced a stellar batch of special guests joining the line up on Sunday 2nd June – the final day of the 2019 festival, on which acclaimed folk project Bon Iver will bring proceedings to a memorable end for their biggest ever show.

Joining Sunday’s bill is Ezra Furman, a rock’n’roll-flavoured singer-songwriter from Chicago. Ezra’s rich instrumentation and swooning melodies are straight out of the golden era of American pop, but his androgynous, sexually fluid identity is far from traditional. His latest album Transatlantic Exodus was released last year, and since then he’s provided the soundtrack for (and appeared in) the hit Netflix show Sex Education

RY X is an Australian musician who writes and produces spectral, hushed songs simultaneously barely there and emotionally overwhelming. Like fellow All Points East acts James Blake and Bon Iver, he combines influence from minimal electronic music with the confessional singer-songwriter tradition. His 2016 track ‘Berlin’ was memorably covered by Sam Smith in BBC Radio One’s Live Lounge, and his debut album Unfurl arrived earlier this year.

The indie-folk alias of Alabama-born Matthew Houck, Phosphorescent has built up a cult following for the string of albums he’s released since 2003. A lot of critical love has been accrued along the way, with his albums and songs consistently cropping up in the year-end best-of lists of publications like Pitchfork and Stylus. After an extended sabbatical following 2013’s Muchacho, he returned with the introspective, personal C’est La Vie in 2018.

Frustrated with a musical career that was barely getting off the ground, Charlie Cunningham moved to Spain to study flamenco guitar for two years – a decision that subsequently paid off in spades, as anyone clued up on his austere, atmospheric music will attest. His debut album Lines (2017) gained significant exposure, and recent singles hint at more new material coming soon.

These acts will join the iconic headliner Bon Iver. Since the the cabin-in-the-woods isolation of 2007’s debut LP For Emma, Forever Ago, Bon Iver have established themselves as one of the most ambitious, creative and genre-defying bands around, with two Grammy Awards and several BRIT nominations to their name.  Vernon’s appearance at All Points East will also come fresh off the back of performances with Big Red Machine, his collaborative project with The National’s Aaron Dessner. The duo released their eponymous debut in mid-2018 to critical acclaim.

Each release has seen the group, spearheaded by Justin Vernon, reinvent their sound and style, most recently on 2016’s 22,A Million. The album received critical acclaim, frequently appeared on media’s ‘Best Of The Year’ lists, and translated into an equally riveting live performance – the latter highlighted via Bon Iver’s epic eight-night residency at London’s Eventim Hammersmith Apollo.

Already announced as playing alongside Bon Iver are: Mac DeMarco, sure to bring his trademark ‘jizz-jazz’ and notorious stage antics to Victoria Park; First Aid Kit, a duo of Swedish sisters who have released four beautifully rich and elegant records over the last decade; cult American singer-songwriter John Grant; Kristia Matsson aka The Tallest Man On Earth, who easily outshines frequent ‘heir to Dylan’ labels; Julien Baker, whose candid, captivating songwriting enchants audiences around the world; Snail Mail, whose debut Lush cementer her as one of 2018’s breakout indie stars; and Congolese collective KOKOKO!, who fuse their love of electronic music with African and Arabic sounds.

Over on the JägerHaus stage, Bill Ryder-Jones, Gwenno, WestermanBlack Country, New RoadGently TenderSteve Davis & Kavus Torabi (DJ Set), Drowned In Sound DJs and Los Bitchos will be keeping the music flowing all day.

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 and Entertainment, Street Food to Pop Up Bars, Theatre, Arts, Sports & Wellbeing, Children’s Activities and much more.

DOCTOR MUSIC FESTIVAL TO BE RELOCATED TO MONTMELÓ

DOCTOR MUSIC FESTIVAL TO BE RELOCATED TO MONTMELÓ

DOCTOR MUSIC FESTIVAL TO BE RELOCATED TO MONTMELÓ

The new location of Doctor Music Festival is now the Circuit deBarcelona-Catalunya, – Montmeló, on the 12th, 13th and 14th of July.

The opening day on Thursday 11th July has unfortunately been suspended, with Parquet Courts’ performance being moved to Friday 12th and the Smashing Pumpkins show moving to Sunday 14th as one of the headliners on that day.
They accepted this change with the respect and courtesy only worthy of one of the most emblematic bands on the international music scene.  The band was willing to accommodate the date and time change for the sake of the festival, their fans, and the other bands.

The return of Doctor Music Festival was due to be held in the Escalarre Vall d’Àneu valley, where the festival’s previous editions had been held. However, due to an unfavourable and final report from the ACA (The Catalan Water Agency) today they have been forced to move the festival to a new location, as with just 4 months left to go, it would be impossible to reduce the size of the festival in order to meet the limitations required.

In the festival’s opinion, there has been a very over-exaggerated and destructive interpretation of the regulations surroundings theoretical flood risks in the valley, which has never before flooded in summer (at least as far as current data shows). The stringency levels which have been applied in this case far surpass the norm and we have therefore been forced to abandon the originally planned location in order to ensure that all artistic commitments made are complied with, and make sure that the festival goes ahead as per originally designed for this new edition.

All of the festival’s previously confirmed acts will remain the same, with the exception of Chris Robinson Brotherhood. There will also be several new acts added to the line-up at the Circuit deBarcelona-Catalunya, Montmeló (an internationally renowned location boasting excellent facilities and spanning over more than 600,000m2)

Thanks to the privileged location of Montmeló, at just 32 kilometres from Barcelona, with multiple access routes by car, as well as its own train station, this venue offers a multitude of amenities for festivalgoers which would be difficult to find at any other large music festival of this scale.

This new festival edition envisions the most innovative and dramatic of set designs, in line with cutting-edge international design. There will be four very different spaces, each bursting with personality and a distinctive look.

The main stage spans 162 meters long and is the biggest stage ever to be held at a festival or concert in southern Europe. It has been designed by no other than Ray Winkler, the leading talent behind the famous London studio Stufish Entertaiment Architects www.stufish.comThey are responsible for the stage setups of many international tours for the likes of The Rolling Stones, U2, Metallica, AC/DC, Madonna, Beyoncé & Jay Z, Muse, Pink Floyd… and many more. The lighting for such a special stage will be created by no other than the prestigious lighting designer Patrick Woodroffe, general director of Woodroffe Basset Design www.woodroffebassett.com, who designed the most recent tours for AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, Adele, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Elton John, Paul Simon and Phil Collins, among many other.

Special mention must also go to the Force Field area, which will play host to a special program of open-air electronic music, for which the full line-up will be announced very soon!
This novel concept has been created and designed by Damian Lazarus himself, the influential DJ and producer responsible for the success of festivals such as Get Lostin Miami or Day Zero in Tulum, together with the help from the prestigious Belgian studio Criaturas www.criaturas.com

It will be a one-of-a-kind exclusive experience, with a specially designed concept and look for the occasion. Luciano, Jamie Jones, Âme and Dj Tennis are just some of the 23 artists set to fill this innovative space with their force and energy.

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park announces guests for Celine Dion’s show

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park announces guests for Celine Dion’s show

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park announces guests for Celine Dion’s show

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park today announces guests for Celine Dion’s first ever headlining show in the Royal Park this July. Special guest and global superstar Josh Groban with support from Claire Richards.  

Celine will be headlining The Great Oak Stage for her only European date of 2019 and her performance will come just a month after the end of her second record-breaking Las Vegas residency Celine on 8 June 2019. 

“Over the course of my career, Celine has been an inspiration, friend, and singing with her quite frankly started my career as a teenager,” says Groban.  “To join her for this extremely special concert is a great honor and I look forward to giving my all for her and the audience at Hyde Park.” 

Grammy Award-nominated singer, songwriter, and actor Josh Groban has entertained fans across the globe with his multi-platinum albums and DVDs (over 35 million sold worldwide), electrifying live performances, and comedic film and television appearances. The 37-year-old Los Angeles native stands out as “the only artist who has had two albums appear on the Top 20 Best-Selling Albums list of the past decade,” according to Billboard. His discography encompasses eight studio albums, including his 2001 self-titled 5x-platinum debut, 2003’s 6x-platinum Closer, 2006’s double-platinum Awake, 2007’s 6x platinum Grammy-nominated Noel, 2010’s gold-certified Illuminations, 2013’s gold-certified All That Echoes, 2015’s worldwide million selling Stages, and most recently 2018’s Bridges.

Claire Richards has launched a successful solo career this year with the single On My Own and album My Wildest Dreams. Claire, however, signed her first record deal 23 years ago and has achieved enormous success with Steps, racking up fourteen top 5 hits, three number 1 albums, a Brit Award and 20 million record sales. The iconic pop group reunited for last year’s acclaimed Tears on the Dancefloor album, which debuted at number 2, and a hugely popular 22-date sold out arena tour. But now, Claire is stepping into the spotlight alone with My Wildest Dreams breaking the UK Top 10

Claire Richards says: “Performing at Hyde Park on the same stage as my idol Celine really is a dream come true and I’m so excited to perform tracks from my album with my live band”. 

Celine Dion will headline Hyde Park for the very first time on the Great Oak Stage on Friday 5th July 2019. Tickets are on sale now. Already announced for Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park2019 are Florence and the Machine (13th July), Robbie Williams (14thJuly) and Barbara Streisand (7th July).

ROY ORBISON & BUDDY HOLLY:  ‘THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL DREAM TOUR’

ROY ORBISON & BUDDY HOLLY: ‘THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL DREAM TOUR’

ROY ORBISON & BUDDY HOLLY:
 ‘THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL DREAM TOUR’

Today, BASE Hologram, the leading content developer, producer and distributor of concerts, theatricals and spectacles that combine holographic cinema and mixed reality with live entertainment, announced  Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly: The Rock ’N’ Roll Dream Tour, a groundbreaking tour featuring the award-winning rock and roll legends. 

Stemming from the success of BASE Hologram’s In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert tour that broke records across the globe over 2018,  the company will bring Orbison and Holly together for an enthralling event that will launch concurrent tours in Europe/UK and in North America.  Eric Schaeffer (Million Dollar Quartet), who shepherded the In Dreams event will return as the director.

“Both Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly set the stage for what was to come down the road in the music industry,” said Brian Becker, Chairman and CEO of BASE Hologram.  “These two men were forward-thinkers who understood what new forms of technology could do for their craft. They defined the genre of Rock and Roll, from writing to recording to the standard band configuration, and they influenced everyone from Elvis to The Beatles. Now to be able to recapture that magic on a grand scale and let their fans see them together will be something truly special.”

Accompanied by a live band and live back-up singers, this cutting edge holographic performance and remastered audio will transport audiences back in time for an evening of Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly’s greatest hits onstage.

“Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly shared many similarities in both their musical and personal lives,” said BASE Hologram CEO of Production Marty Tudor.  “Many people don’t realize the two were friends who had a special connection. Roy was like a big brother to Buddy and the two helped make each other better songwriters and performers. It is only fitting they to continue pushing the envelope in this type of way.”

Universally recognised as one of the great music legends and praised by everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Bono, Roy Orbison’s catalogue includes such chart-toppers as Oh, Pretty WomanYou Got ItOnly The LonelyCryingI Drove All Night, It’s Over and In Dreams.

“My father’s music meant the world to not just us Orbison’s but to millions of fans worldwide. Being able to reopen his legendary songbook and again hear his voice bounce off great concert hall walls is both a transcendent and cathartic experience,”said Roy Orbison, Jr., President of Roy Orbison Music. “Dad jammed with Buddy in Lubbock Texas and helped change music history by turning Buddy on to Norman Petty Studios; Buddy later returned the favor by recording two of Dad’s songs on his first Cricket’s album. How beyond cool and special that these two great friends, now get to tour the world together.”

A seasoned performer by age 16, Buddy Holly was known not just for his distinguished look, but also for his mastery of several music styles. In addition to hits such as Peggy Sue, Oh Boy!, Not Fade Away and That’ll Be the Day, Holly was among the first artists to use techniques such as double-tracking on his albums. Along with his beloved band The Crickets, Holly helped set the standard for the Beatles and others for rock and roll orchestration by setting the two guitar, bass and drum line-up now seen in traditional concerts.

“Buddy and Roy were Texans who shared a mutual respect and admiration for each other’s creative musical genius and brilliant songwriting abilities” said Buddy’s wife Maria Elena Holly. “I am proud to work with a company like BASE Hologram. Their long-time fans and a new generation of fans will now have the opportunity to see these great legends perform together in a unique setting, showcasing two of the finest, most influential, and beloved artists in music history.”

With nearly 3 million followers on Facebook and almost 5 million monthly listeners on Spotify between them, audiences are still enamored with the men who brought “geek chic” and horn-rimmed glasses into the mainstream. This tour will allow fans old and new to get the chance to experience these pioneering figures in a spectacular and thrilling new way. Pulling from their combined 16 platinum records, 19 gold records, nearly two dozen Top 40 hits and 10 combined GRAMMY awards, this transcendent musical event will give audiences a once in a lifetime musical experience. 

Tickets for UK dates go on sale this Friday 29th March, promoted by Kennedy Street Enterprises and are available from Ticketline.co.uk or directly from venues, prices from £45.
