Soulwax, Yaeji, Maribou State, Jesse James Solomon, Bones Garage, Kelela, Abra, Parcels, Her, Octavian and DJ DEBONAIR have joined the All Points East Festival line-up as the debut event reveals its stage designs. Taking over Victoria Park from Friday, May 25th to Sunday, May 27th, there will be four stages with the production details confirmed.
The East Stage, the main stage at All Points East, will have screens for all to see the on-stage action plus 60 moving lights and a Martin Multi-Cellular Loudspeaker Array. The main indoor space, The West Stage, will have a lighting array of 97 moving lights, 50 further lights on stage and an Outline GTO audio system found at the O2.
The North Stage is inspired by theatre with 50 moving lights and a Martin Multi-Cellular Loudspeaker Array. Meanwhile the previously-revealed X Stage will be an ‘in the round’ experience with each leg of the structure housing inward-facing speaker configurations.
Festival Director James King said: “Every stage at All Points East is designed to offer fans a different experience wherever they are on the site and at whatever time of the day it may be. Lighting and video are essential to delivering an ever changing and evolving production and live experience. We want the stages to feel unique for every performance so the artists can deliver their own personal vision to their fans, making each set stand out from the last.
“To achieve this the East Stage will host a large scale LED screen setup to provide a huge canvas for each artist to deliver their own look and bespoke feel supporting their live performance. The North stage takes inspiration for many of the world’s greatest theatres where concentric arches help achieve lighting spectacles rarely seen outdoors.
“The West Stage is simply a full on indoor immersive production set up where large scale lighting and LED combine with great sound and a break from the sun. The X Stage is a new exciting design specifically created for All Posts East. We wanted one of the best quad based systems in the world to deliver a sound field much like the very best clubs did back in the day.”
