It is reported in the newest issue of URB that Radiohead will headline two of the three nights at All Points West, the New York City Festival being put on by AEG Live and Goldenvoice, the folks behind Coachella. [URB]
By "NYC Festival", they mean the one in Liberty State Park, Jersey City, New Jersey (close enough). More Radiohead tour dates HERE.

What makes you think this is legitimate source? Never heard of this, URB...

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 9:05 AM

URB is completely ligit. i'm not saying anything as to whether or not this is true about 2 nights, but URB has been around for what? 15 years and always has a tent at Coachella. I do believe that they would know.

Posted by jp | February 21, 2008 9:15 AM

Pitchfork says that URB first reported it and it has subsequently been confirmed. Looking forward to the rest of the lineup...

Note Pitchfork's latest claim is that Vampire Weekend is good...

Ehh, forget this. I'll probably be at a cooler show at Market Hotel anyway.

Cause it's less known and more abstact.

It makes it cooler.

Its how i roll.

URB mag is prolly older than you. They def been listening and reporting on good music longer than you have been listening...

YAY for APW!

Very good, Anon. 10:38. Would you like a cookie?

Posted by Famous Amos | February 21, 2008 10:41 AM

This is good news. More people will be able to attend despite scalpers buying loads of tickets. The shows at LSP years ago were classic

ANON AT 1038 YOU WERE SO RIGHT!!

Posted by James Snuka | February 21, 2008 10:57 AM

tickets will run 260-300

Posted by cdubya | February 21, 2008 11:00 AM

No way $260-300. There is no camping. More like $75/day or $180 for a 3-day pass.

Exactly. Just like Austin City Limits or Lollapalooza.

I think it depends on the corporate sponsorships. Lolla is heavy on corporate sponsors which allows them to have lower ticket prices than say Coachella. I wouldn't be surprised if tickets were $250+ for this.

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 11:28 AM

The higher the prices, the better, to keep out all you riff-raff.

Posted by Donald Trump | February 21, 2008 11:37 AM

$250 is greater than the average per capita income in Jersey.

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 11:40 AM

Anon. 11:40, you couldn't be more wrong. Lots of corporate execs live in Jersey. I bet some of their kids have a weekly allowance of $250 or more.

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 11:46 AM

Im gonna guess 200, with fees- $230.

However, what if the rumored 88 drummers happens on the same day in Coney Island? That will be a tough choice, for me at least, but I would have to go with 88 drummers.

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 11:54 AM

IS SNAPCASE PLAYING APW? WHAT TIME WILL DAFT PUNK GO ON? THE APW LINEUP IS ALREADY 10 TIMES BETTER THAN COACHELLA. I WONDER IF JACK JOHNSON WILL PLAY?

who cares about you!

ps - lame decision

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 12:30 PM

Nope. Gotta agree 88 Drummers is WAY better (and cheaper)! And all the hipsters will be far away in NJ. Yippee!

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 12:50 PM

the Boredoms should beat down Daft Punk's pyramid with the 176 drumsticks that will be present.

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 12:57 PM

88 drummers - 3 Radiohead - 0

I assume this was sarcastic, but then again i'm not ruling out moronic.

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 1:02 PM

new jersey has the second highest average per capita income in the country.

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 1:07 PM

When are they just going to announce the whole lineup?

By hipsters do you mean all the people who got in to see the original 88 drummers in that tiny park this past summer? By hipsters do you mean all the people who will not have to make a choice of either to see Radiohead or 88 Drummers because they already saw the oruginal 88 drummers show. So they can go see Radiohead put on what should be one of the best shows of the year.
Oh those people....you mean the ones better than you. You dickhead

I don't give a fuck how much it is. If it keeps you all low life bastards away, then it's good.
Who would camp at LSP anyway?

Liberty State Park is a graveyard, no?

Correct. The Statue of Liberty's grandparents are buried there.

LSP was amazing for the kid A tour.

Posted by drLES | February 21, 2008 4:19 PM

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 4:45 PM

Looks like a partial lineup...

Really not that great so far in my opinion. And tickets for the weekend are $258.
