Gang of Youths will play the 2021 All Points East festival

Gang of Youths is set to play at the 2021 All Points East festival. The event is set for the final weekend of August at London’s Victoria Park. GOY is scheduled for the final day of the festival: Monday, August 30.

Tickets are available now.

This is now GOY’s fourth scheduled live gig of the year. The band was due to play last year’s APE festival in May 2020, but that was one of many victims of the worldwide pandemic.

Neighbourhood Weekender Festival Reschedules for September with Gang of Youths on Bill

The UK’s Neighbourhood Weekender festival has been rescheduled once again, and is now set to take place on the first weekend of September, 2021. The good news: Gang of Youths remains on the bill. More good news: With COVID vaccine distribution spreading around the world, it looks like this event may finally happen.

Gang of Youths is set to perform on day two of the now-three-day festival, which will be Sept. 4, 2021, at Victoria Park in Warrington. James is the headline act that day, a recent replacement for Ian Brown (Stone Roses), who recently dropped out while complaining that he wouldn’t perform at any event where attendees are required to have vaccinations. For the record, the festival hasn’t said that vaccinations will be required; only that they’ll follow whatever conditions are in place at the time.)

Tickets are available on the festival’s website.

Neighbourhood Weekender was originally scheduled for the weekend of May 23-24, 2020, and then rescheduled for September 5-6, 2020 — but both times it had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year’s event was originally scheduled for May 29-30 and then rescheduled to the current dates: Sept. 3-5, 2021.

GOY is also due to play the Ohana Festival in southern California later in September. As of this moment, their next live performance is scheduled for July 10, 2021, at the Mad Cool Festival in Spain. You can see all upcoming Gang of Youths gigs here on Deepest Sighs.

Gang of Youths to Play Spain’s Mad Cool Festival in 2021

It feels like forever since we’ve been able to write a news story about Gang of Youths adding a live gig to its schedule, rather than having its schedule of live gigs decimated by the pandemic.

But we get to do that today!

Gang of Youths has officially been added to the lineup for the 2021 Mad Cool Festival in Madrid, Spain! The festival happens over four days in early July, and GOY is due to perform on Saturday, July 10. Red Hot Chili Peppers are the headliner that day.

Tickets for the entire festival are available now.

All of this, of course, assumes that we’ll be able to have live music festivals by next July. Here’s hoping that’s the case!

This’ll be Gang of Youths’ second time performing at Mad Cool. Back in 2018, the band did a 6-song set mostly highlighting songs from Go Farther In Lightness. We can safely assume next year’s performance will feature songs from their upcoming album.

Here’s a listen to “Let Me Down Easy” from that Mad Cool appearance in 2018.
