A week prior to the Strokes gig (August 18), Stormzy will headline All Points East for the first time, bringing a curated day of music dubbed ‘This Is What We Mean Day’, based around his new album ‘This Is What I Mean’.

He said in an announcement video: “I was thinking what’s next, cos we’ve done three O2s, shut that down. I said to the team, we gotta do something bigger, something better, something different. We were having back to back meetings, bouncing ideas. Then it hit me, I started jotting down ideas thinking – live band, need a live band.

“August 2023, a summer time thing, outside, for the people, always for my people. So August 2023, Victoria Park, more info coming soon….This Is What We Mean Day. Hard.” A full line-up of artists for ‘This Is What We Mean Day’ will be announced soon.
