The lineup for the second annual All Points West Music & Arts Festival has been announced, and it's a doozy: Coldplay, Tool, and the Beasties Boys top an impressive bill that also includes Echo & the Bunnymen, My Bloody Valentine, Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Gogol Bordello.

Other highlights from the lineup of 60-plus acts: The National, Fleet Foxes, Neko Case, Q-Tip, St. Vincent, the Black Keys, Silversun Pickups, Gaslight Anthem, Elbow, and Ra Ra Riot. Check out the complete lineup here.

The three-day show will be held July 31 through Aug. 2 at New Jersey's Liberty State Park, just across the Hudson River from Lower Manhattan. For its second year, APW's producer -- Goldenvoice, who also produce California's Coachella festival -- has promised improvements, including cheaper transportation and larger concessions with views of the stages. Hooray!

Tickets go on sale April 3 via Ticketmaster.com. Single day tickets run $89 and three-day passes are priced at $199.
