The Strokes is the headliner of All Points East 2023 presented by Luno.
The New York indie legends – who performed their first UK show in four years at the 2019 festival – will return to the stage at London’s Victoria Park on 25 August.
Support comes from their fellow Yeah Yeah Yeahs, as well as Girl in Red, Amyl and The Sniffers, Angel Olsen and black midi, and more.
Julian Casablancas and co released “The New Abnormal,” their long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s Comedown Machine, in April 2020, and the band hopes fans won’t have to wait too long for their next release. A studio piece, because they’re “a little bit faster these days in terms of writing and recording”.
The 44-year-old frontman said at the time: “I think it’s going to be a little bit faster now. I think we’re going well. We’ve got a good relationship with Rick. [Rubin].
“In theory, knock on wood, we should work faster.
“It’s hard to predict anything, but that’s my guess… Albert?”
London’s best Stormzy will also headline the multi-day event.
The rapper curated the August 18 act to celebrate the release of his critically acclaimed 2022 LP “This Is What I Mean.”
In a video shared on Twitter, he said: “I’m thinking about what’s next because we’ve done three O2s, shutting it down. I said to the team, we have to do something bigger, better, different things.
“We had back-to-back meetings and we were talking about ideas. Then it hit me and I started jotting down ideas thinking – live band, need live band.
“August 2023, summer thing, out there, for the people, always for my people. So August 2023, Victoria Park, more info coming soon… that’s what we mean by day. Hard.”
