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!
