All Points East Festival


#1

New festival in london from the organisers of Coachella. Line up looks very strong so far:

Anyone know ticket prices?

#3

Bjork day is strong, but seeing her (anyone) in Victoria Park is a last resort, really. Hopefully she’ll play Primavera


#4

Ticket prices and pre-sale info (expand the post):


#5

Think this does warrant another thread as I would never have opened the national one


#6

Where the heck is the apply to play option. That’s what I want to know


#7

So it’s £60 per day + 10% bf. Or £90 +10% for the VIP ticket. Has anyone experienced the VIP package? The extra £30 would pay for all my food and a few drinks.

I won’t buy in advance. If it’s dry on the day, I’ll turn up and pay at the box office. It’s never a sell out unless it’s Radiohead.


#8

Presale now open and there’s minimal savings in buying 2/3 day tickets. A few quid gets shaved off the booking fee and that’s about it. It’s not even halved.


#9

Yeah, it’s all a bit pricey for me, especially if it’s going to be a giant
field with terrible sound. Still a bit tempted by the line up though. Do we
know the capacity of the site?


#10

Don’t know about this.

I’ve had bad experiences with festivals that can be abbreviated to three letters, where the first one is A


#11

It’s coachella doing this isn’t it?

Can’t see them fucking it and airblades can’t be installed in fields


#12

No booking fee on Dice so will be getting my ticket on there on Friday. Cash seems prettt reasonable for the caliber of bands involved.


#13

Dice is charging a 10% booking fee on each ticket (i.e. £6 on a standard ticket, £9 on a VIP ticket).


#14

Aaaah thanks for noting. I had just assumed that was the price without booking fee. Guess I’ll just pay the extra £1.50 on AXS now so I don’t have to think about it on Friday.


#15

Nick Cave & Those Bad Seeds announced as headliner for the final day…

Nick Cave arena tour
#16

Saw them on Monday night. They were on top, top form. Cracking setlist


#17

Bonus: Patti Smith playing in Brighton the day before suggests she’ll be supporting Nick, like she is overseas.


#18

Nick Cave, Patti Smith, St Vincent and Courtney Barnett formally announced!


#19

Got a couple of tickets. That is a STRONG bill, with more to come


#20

That’s exceptionally strong. There’s now 3 days of this thing I’d like to go to. It would be great if the bands playing them could all play at some other festival. Maybe in Barcelona.
