Luno Presents: All Points East is back for 2022, with an epic line up of world class headliners, guests and some big exclusives. Today essential UK dance duo Disclosure announce more names for their huge headline show on Saturday 27 August, including pop sensation Charli XCX, infectious producer Mura Masa, plus Shy FX, Franky Wah (live), Wesley Joseph, Lola Young and Joy Anonymous. They join previously announced guests James Blake, Fred Again.., Koffee, Freddie Gibbs, Channel Tres and many more.
Dance music giants Disclosure will bring us all together again, after recently releasing 5 pulsating tracks in 5 days to celebrate the return of club culture. The Lawrence Brothers released their latest album ENERGY in 2020 but broke onto the scene as teenagers, fusing UK house and garage with songwriting skills - collaborating with everyone from Sam Smith to Kelis along the way. Now one of dance music’s biggest live draws, they light up All Points East on Saturday 27 August.
Joining the line-up is fan favourite and pop superstar, Charli XCX. Merging experimental and mainstream pop with ease, Charli XCX has become an unstoppable force in both the UK music scene and worldwide. A hugely talented songwriter and collaborator, she helped create some of the biggest tracks of the 2010s, now the BRIT Award and GRAMMY nominee is an incredible artist in her own right. Her recently released fifth album, Crash, shot straight to Number 1 on the UK Official Album Charts, cementing her status as a pop sensation. In case you missed her headline show at Alexandra Palace last week, catch Charli in Victoria Park on 27 August.
GRAMMY-winner Mura Masa returns to All Points East for another incredible performance. The Guernsey-born producer, songwriter and vocalist is a non-stop success, already having surpassed 2 billion streams. Along the way, he has confirmed his reputation as a chameleonic curator of global sounds; not only in his own solo material but in the emerging talent Mura Masa continues to develop, whether producing for Slowthai and Octavian, or remixing Koffee and Perfume Genius. Recent collaboration ‘bbycakes’ saw him team up with Lil Uzi Vert, PinkPantheress and Shygirl, gaining more than 10 million listens since its release in February this year.
More special guests announced today include veteran jungle/drum'n'bass DJ/producer Shy FX, exciting breakthrough DJ/producer Franky Wah, visionary creative Wesley Joseph, up-and-coming astute songwriter Lola Young, and raw musical masterminds Joy Anonymous.
