All is a Go with All Points West
Unlike Vineland's fallout this year, Jersey City's All Points West is going strong. Radiohead has been confirmed to headline the show for the first two nights (Aug. 8-9), and surfer-turned-singer-songwriter Jack Johnson will be closing the festival and headlining the final night (Aug. 10).
The rest of the lineup, released a few days ago, includes Underworld, Kings of Leon, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Cat Power, The Roots, The New Pornographers, Youssou N'Dour, Animal Collective, Andrew Bird, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Metric, CSS, Girl Talk, Chromeo, The Go! Team, Amadou & Mariam, The Black Angels, Sia, The Felice Brothers, K'Naan, Jason Isbell, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Alberta Cross, The Virgins, Black Kids, Mates of State, Duffy, Forro in the Dark, Nicole Atkins, Juana Molina, Little Brother, Rogue Wave, Neil Halstead and Your Vegas.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, Feb. 29 at noon via Ticketmaster. Single day passes go for $89 while the three-day pass is $258. Part of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to Friends of Liberty State Park—helping the park stay green. And Jack Johnson will also be helping with the green movement with All At Once—promoting carpooling to the venue and recycling during the concert experience.
