All Points East organisers have signed up Bon Iver as the second headliner for next year’s festival.

Justin Vernon will be joined at Victoria Park in the spring of 2019 by Mac DeMarco, First Aid Kit, The Tallest Man On Earth, Julien Baker and Snail Mail, as well as John Grant who released his new album Love Is Magic last month. “John Grant’s fourth solo album seems straightforward enough on the surface,” Live4ever’s review opens.

“‘Love is magic’, he sings on the title track, his dreamily smooth baritone steering the casual listener towards a typically sentimental – and hopeful – perception that merely being in love is a life elevating panacea for the beholder that makes all the bad stuff go away.”

“So far, so fifty-year-old man that’s stepped away from a mid-life that featured drugs, emotional laceration and the disintegration of The Czars, a band he fronted who also made sensationally beautiful and melancholic songs in an era when repression was a just another word for the life of being a guy.”
