Festival organiser AEG Presents have today unveiled the band as the second big name at the festival, a week after announcing that The Chemical Brothers would open next year’s 10-day event.

The American five-piece – who have won two Grammy awards since their debut album For Emma, Forever Ago in 2007 – will bring down the curtain on the festival after performances from Mac DeMarco, First Aid Kit, John Grant, Tallest Man on Earth, Julien Baker, Snail Mail and KOKOKO.

Next year’s All Points East is the second of its kind. The festival’s debut earlier this year drew big crowds who saw performances from the likes of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, LCD Soundsystem and The xx.

The festival sees two weekends of big name music acts bookending a free four-day community event with kids’ activities, outdoor cinema, street-food outlets and performances by local acts.

Last week’s line-up announcement saw The Chemical Brothers, Hot Chip and Primal Scream named as three of the performers who will get the festival up-and-running on May 24. Four days of acts are still to be announced.

Bon Iver’s appearance at All Points East is the band’s biggest headline show to date. Hailing from Wisconsin, USA, the group have released three albums, with their 2016 record 22 A Million peaking at number two in the British album charts. Known for songs like Skinny Love and Holocene, the band also have three Brit Award nominations to their name.

Other stand-out performances on the final Sunday of the festival will come from Mac DeMarco – whose trademark style has been described as “jizz-jazz” – as well as First Aid Kit, who first rose to prominence after their beautiful cover of Fleet Foxes’ Tiger Mountain Peasant.

An exclusive pre-sale for Hackney Gazette readers who live in Hackney or Tower Hamlets – the two boroughs that border the park – will go live on Thursday at 9am. Go to axs.com/gazette and enter the password APEGAZETTE when prompted.

Regular tickets go on sale the following day.
