Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents, said: “Last summer showed how much we missed All Points East, so it’s hugely exciting to not just launch 2022, but to be able to announce all 6 incredible headliners, and more artists across the two weekends, in one go.”

American Express Card Member Presale starts November 22, 1pm, Tower Hamlets and Ticket Agent Presale starts November 24, 10am, and general sale will be available November 25 from 10am here.

All Points East returned this year after two years of cancellations due to Covid-19, with Jamie xx, London Grammar, Jorja Smith and Foals among headliners.

Posting on Twitter about next year’s double-weekend announcement, All Points East wrote: “Because just the one weekend wasn’t quite enough…we’re back for two in 2022,” promising “six days of incredible music”.

Kraftwerk, Tame Impala and Massive Attack were among the intended headliners at the 2020 edition of the festival.
