The second annual All Points West festival is returning to New Jersey this year, with My Bloody Valentine, the Beastie Boys and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs among the major acts confirmed for the event. The festival takes place between Friday July 31 and Sunday August 2 at Liberty State Park in Jersey City.
The strong lineup also features Tool, Coldplay, Vampire Weekend, MGMT and a host of other acts. Tickets for the event go on sale this Friday (April 4) at 12 noon via Ticketmaster, and are priced at $89 for a single day ticket and $199 for a three-day pass. The festival organizers are also promising improved rail and boat services to the site.
In addition to the musical attractions, there are also a number of comedians playing All Points West, including Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo and Michael Showalter. Futher details will presumably be added to the official All Points West
, although it’s still showing all the 2008 information at the present time. [via
