From July 31-Aug. 2, Jersey City’s Liberty State Park will again play host to the All Points West Festival, with musical headliners Coldplay, the Beastie Boys, and Tool, and also including Vampire Weekend, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Echo & the Bunnymen, and approximately 60 other musical acts.
According to the website: “Tickets for ALL POINTS WEST go on sale Friday, April 3 at 12 Noon (ET) via only. Single day tix are $89 and three day passes are $199 for a limited time.”
They have also worked to resolve transportation and beverage issues. Following last year’s inaugural event, festival producers began work immediately on resolving concerns expressed by fans in attendance. They have worked closely with their partners at NJ Transit to improve light-rail service and capacity. As an added value for 2009, festival goers who choose to travel to the site utilizing the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail line can ride for free throughout the weekend with their ALL POINTS WEST festival ticket.. “Additionally, based on the popularity of the ferry as a mode of transportation from lower Manhattan to Liberty State Park, the frequency and size of the ferryboats will increase at a reduced price for festival attendees.
“The producers have also worked with their partners at Liberty State Park to improve the fan experience in the beer gardens. This year’s areas will be larger, have shorter lines, and feature shade tents, views of the stages and food concessions.”
