All Points West joins 2008 fest newbies

North American audiences are getting their fair share of brand-new, outdoor music festivals this summer. Following on the successful heels of events like Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, and Coachella the summer of 2008 will go down as a turning point for the North American outdoor fest. We already had the inaugural Rothbury (Michigan) Festival in June, while the first-ever Pemberton Festival is going on right now in British Columbia. What’s next? Well, the first All Points West Festival, happening in Jersey City the weekend of August 8. I have my one-day ticket, and I’m looking forward to seeing Radiohead, the New Pornographers, Underworld, Girl Talk, Grizzly Bear, and many more. Plus, since I will miss my first Austin City Limits fest ever, I need to compensate somehow.
