All Points West Festival
Running Hoboken411 is very difficult, and when I finally get a chance to take a break, leaving town for a few days is my best bet. Thus, the difficult decision to go down to the shore rather than attend this weekend’s All Points West Festival in Jersey City. (I’ve seen Radiohead a bunch of times already…)
Living vicariously via YouTube, here’s Radiohead’s performance of “Everything in its right place” from last night 8/8/08.
Did anyone attend the festival yet?
While Radiohead is still one of my favorite acts, it seems as if the other “rumored” artists that were possibly playing has lost it’s luster to me! No more Bjork, Strokes or LCD Soundsystem, amongst others.
What do you think of the rest of the sub-headers for this summers big Hudson County Event?
See original announcement after the jump…
Radiohead confirmed two nights at this years All Points West Festival according to URB Magazine. They’ll play the first two shows, August 8th and 9th.
Anyone here like multi-day music festivals? If so, mark your calendars for the All Points West Festival!
All Points West Music & Arts Festival
August 8-10, 2008
The planned festival at Liberty State Park in Jersey City may be over six months away, but it’s already rumored to have some acts that I would actually leave Hoboken and go see! Radiohead, Bjork, The Strokes, Sonic Youth and more may play at this three-day festival.
This is an urban off-shoot of the west coast Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, which is held in a desert, and requires pretty much camping out for three-days in order to attend.
Supposedly this event, plus other large concerts scheduled in the south Jersey and Philly areas caused the cancellation of the Vineland Music Festival poised to take place at the same time.
If this rumored list of performers turns out true, I’ll be there. What about you?
