Catfish & The Bottlemen announced as headliners for exciting London festival

Catfish and The Bottlemen have been named as the third and final headliner for APE Presents, on Friday 1st June.

The bill is a mouthwatering one for fans of Indie and Alternative, with stellar support coming in the form of Blossoms, The Neighbourhood, The Hunna, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and The Amazons.

This is the second year in a row that Catfish have headlined a London day festival, as they drew in huge crowds at last year’s Community Festival in Finsbury Park.

Frontman Van McCann has said this ahead of another London festival headline slot: 

“This is gonna be a massive night! Doesn’t get much better than 40,000 people outdoors screaming every word you’ve written back at you! That’ll do us nicely!”

All Points East is a brand new event in the capital, running from 25th May – 3rd June.

Other acts on the bill include, LCD Soundsystem, The xx and Bjork in what is a brilliant line-up.

Across the weekend, other headliners include The National on the Saturday, and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds taking up the Sunday slot. 

News of Catfish’s slot atop the APE bill comes amid talk of a new album, and what promises to be a busy summer for the Welsh rockers, as they play This Is Tomorrow Festival in May, Lollapalooza Paris in June and a huge show at Cardiff Castle in July. 

Tickets go on sale 9am GMT Friday 26th January.
