The Strokes and Yeah Yeah Yeahs will play at this year’s All Points East in London – see the line-up so far below.

The two New York bands are due to take to the stage in Victoria Park on Friday, August 25, with support coming from the likes of Girl In Red, Amyl And The Sniffers, Angel Olsen and Black Midi.

Elsewhere on the bill are Julie, Hotwax and Nieve Ella. Organisers promise that “many more” acts are to be confirmed in the coming weeks and months.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am GMT this Friday (January 27) – you’ll be able to purchase yours here. Alternatively, you can access a presale at the same time on Thursday (January 26) by signing up here. Check out the announcement posts below.

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.

It was previously confirmed that Stormzy will also headline All Points East 2023, curating 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.”

Recently, Aphex Twin teased a possible appearance at All Points East’s Field Day event this year.
