All Points East festival has moved to a new date of 27-30 August for 2021.
Headliners for 2021 will be Jamie xx and Kano.
All Points East 2020 was previously cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Tame Impala, Massive Attack, Kwaftwerk, The Kooks and The Wombats scheduled to headline.
Sharing a statement back in March last year, organisers wrote: "Following the daily escalating developments in the COVID 19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision that All Points East 2020 will be cancelled. The decision was made following a constant review of recent Government actions and statements, and after further consultation with key partners and agencies it is clear that we are unable to guarantee the safety and wellbeing of those working at and attending the event."
