All Points East Festival Launches "Ten Days Of All Points East" Content Hub
London's All Points East Festival was supposed to start today, May 22. Of course, like all other major festivals, it has been affected by the coronavirus crisis and was forced to cancel. But the festival has announced a new content hub in its place, "Ten Days Of All Points East."
The 10-day online experience will feature new performances, archive gigs and tributes for an array of All Points East artists, including Kraftwerk, Nenneh Cherry, Johnny Marr, John Grant, IDLES and more, as well as free yoga sessions, education resources, and more.
“Today would have marked the start of All Points East 2020 and in celebration of our talented, vibrant, diverse and extraordinary artists and collaborators we will be showcasing the hidden corners of our festival over the next ten days,” festival organizers said in a statement. “Please come together and enjoy a treasure trove of experiences. We will be sharing it all on this page so keep checking for new content. Each day starting from today. Love to all.”
To get "Ten Days Of All Points East" started, catch Jehnny Beth is playing an exclusive gig from her home in France plus Anna Calvi‘s 2018 All Points East performance. There will also be a special screening of the film WHITE RIOT, which documents the London protest movement Rock Against Racism.
