All Points West Lineup Announced
The All Points West Music & Arts Festival is set for year two and has announced their lineup for 2009. This one got a rather lukewarm response last year, but it sounds like some lessons were learned that have the potential to make it a better time this go around. Specifically addressed have been the beer-drinking issues (limits, quarantined areas for drinkers) and transportation difficulties (there will be more and larger ferries delivering fans).
It has been stated that much of the difficulty in getting people to make the trip to the 'dirty jerse' lies in the fact that folks can see many of these acts elsewhere in NY. That may be so, but it seems like a deeper lineup this year makes APW a more compelling purchase. The festival runs July 31-Aug. 2. Three-day passes are $199 and single-day passes are $89. Ticket info here. Friday looks like it could have the potential to be pretty solid. I might have to check APW out this year...if only for a day to get my feet wet. Anybody else intrigued enough to consider going?
