The Strokes have been confirmed as headlining All Points East.
Their first UK gig in four years, the band will perform on Saturday 25th May alongside The Raconteurs, Interpol, Johnny Marr, Parquet Courts, Jarvis Cocker, Courtney Barnett, Connan Mockasin, Anna Calvi, Bakar, The Nude Party and Viagra Boys.
The New York band have been teasing their new album for ages now, with guitarist Nick Valensi claiming back in 2016 that “we are working on music and we want to hopefully put music out next year.” They’ve already been confirmed for a handful of international festivals this summer.
All Points East will also host sets from The Chemical Brothers (24th May – plus Jon Hopkins, Peggy Gou, Róisín Murphy + more), and Christine and the Queens (26th May – plus James Blake, Kamasi Washington, Princess Nokia + more).
Tickets for The Strokes go on general sale from Friday 1st February at 9am.
