All Points West Festival

8/9/2008 Update:

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?

5/17/2008 Update:

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…

2/22/2008 Update:

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?

Here’s a list of possible acts:

August 8th
Headliner: Bjork
Sub-headliner: The Strokes
Others: Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Broken Social Scene, The Rapture

August 9th
Headliner: The Flaming Lips
Sub-headliner: Sonic Youth
Others: My Bloody Valentine, Portishead, Mogwai

August 10th
Headliner: Radiohead
Sub-headliner: Sigur Ros
Others: Bright Eyes, Mars Volta, LCD Soundsystem

The lineup you posted is 100% not true – I’m not sure where you got the info from, but i saw the same ‘lineup’ posted in the comments of a local music blog – only that the person posting it himself admitted that it had no basis in reality- that it was just his ‘ideal’ lineup

Anyway.. the festival should still be pretty cool, AND Radiohead has been rumored to play ever since the festival was announced a few weeks ago.
