Inaugural Vineland Festival Postponed Until 2009

The inaugural Vineland Festival, originally scheduled for Aug. 8-10 in Vineland, N.J., has been moved to early summer 2009. Producers C3 Presents and Festival Republic made the change in response to the overall festival traffic in the Northeast and major bands touring through this area at the same time.

"We had to get our egos in check and say, let’s do the smart decision, get off these dates, and go for an isolated (date) so we can build this thing without having to look over our shoulders," C3 partner Charles Attal tells "We don’t want to be compared to all the other festivals and who’s playing where. We want to build this thing right, organically, from the ground up."

Last week, Coachella producers Goldenvoice/AEG Live announced the inaugural All Points West festival for Aug. 8-10 at Liberty State Park, just across from lower Manhattan in New Jersey, and another large Northeastern festival is also believed to be targeting that weekend.

Neither Vineland or All Points West have announced lineups yet, although Radiohead and Jack Johnson are the rumored headliners for the latter.
