All Points West Announces Line-up - Radiohead and Jack Johnson Are Headliners

As previously rumored, Radiohead and Jack Johnson will headline the All Points West Music & Arts Festival which will held in Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ from August 8-10.

Radiohead gets double headlining duty with gigs on Friday and Saturday night while Johnson is penciled in for Sunday.

Other names on the roster aren't too shabby either.

They include a nice mix of guaranteed great performers (Rodrigo Y Gabriela, CSS), world music (Amadou & Mariam), people we've loved for what seems like forever (Cat Power) and ones who are just starting to make our hearts go pitter pat (The Virgins, Your Vegas, The Felice Brothers).

Tix ($89.00 single day / $258.00 3 day pass) go on sale Friday, February 29th at noon (eastern time) via ticketmaster.

The festival is going green which means there will be lots of public transportation and limited parking.

Jack Johnson
