All Points West 2009 line-up features Coldplay, Tool, more

March 30, 2009  |  1:24pm
The weekend of July 31 will be the All Points West festival's first birthday, but this party won't be of the ice cream cake-and-piñata variety. Plans are well underway for the festival's second year to include Beastie Boys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Tool and Coldplay. There may not be party hats or favors, but loads of overpriced alcohol and the view from Liberty State Park should more than make up for it.

Festival producers promise that this year's event will run more smoothly than last year's, as they've improved light-rail and ferry capacity and service for the weekend. Tickets go on sale this Friday solely via Ticketmaster.com. The full line-up is listed below.
