Officials for the All Points West Music & Arts Festival have unveiled the lineup for the first ever installment, and in addition to featuring Radiohead two consecutive nights, Jack Johnson will headline a bill highlighted by Kings Of Leon, Cat Power, the New Pornographers, and Girl Talk, among others. The festival, scheduled for Aug. 8-10 at New Jersey’s Liberty State Park, just across the Hudson River from Manhattan, also boasts an indie-centric collection of acts, including Rodrigo y Gabriela, Animal Collective, Andrew Bird, Metric, CSS, Chromeo, the Go! Team, the Black Angels, Sia, Jason Isbell, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, the Virgins, Black Kids, Mates Of State, Duffy, Forro In The Dark, Nicole Atkins, and Rogue Wave, among others.

Concertgoers can purchase tickets beginning Feb. 29; single-day tickets run $89, while three-day passes will sell for $258. Also, aiding New York residents, a ferry service will run direct from Manhattan to the festival grounds. In addition, a portion of ticket sales will benefit Friends of Liberty State Park, an organization working to make environmentally friendly improvements to the venue — Thom Yorke approves.
