Haim have been confirmed as the latest headliners for London’s All Points East 2023.
The Californian sisters will top the bill at the Victoria Park event on August Bank Holiday Monday (August 28), marking their only European performance this year.
They’ll be joined by a line-up that also includes the likes of Nell Mescal, Girl In Red, Confidence Man, Tove Lo, Romy of The XX, Lizzy McAlpine, Mae Stephens and Snail Mail.
It comes after it was previously confirmed that The Strokes and Yeah Yeah Yeahs will also return to All Points East this summer, with support coming from the likes of Girl In Red, Amyl And The Sniffers, Angel Olsen and Black Midi.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs returned with their first album in nine years, Cool It Down, last September. The Strokes, meanwhile, last released a full-length record in early 2020 with the Rick Rubin-produced The New Abnormal.
Julian Casablancas and co. made their debut appearance at All Points East in 2019, where their billing-topping show was marred by sound issues. YYYs returned to the UK for a brief run of dates in June 2022, marking their first headline gigs on these shores in almost a decade.
Elsewhere, Aphex Twin will also headline Field Day at Victoria Park, while Stormzy will curate an entire day of acts under the banner ‘This Is What We Mean Day’.
Announcing the show, the Croydon MC said: “I was thinking what’s next, cos we’ve done three O2s, shut that down. I said to the team, we gotta do something bigger, something better, something different. We were having back to back meetings, bouncing ideas. Then it hit me, I started jotting down ideas thinking – live band, need a live band.
“August 2023, a summer time thing, outside, for the people, always for my people. So August 2023, Victoria Park, more info coming soon….This Is What We Mean Day. Hard.”
