Roadtrip: All Points West 2010 — not going to happen?

leave a comment »

The summer festival held at Liberty State Park in New Jersey the past two years does not appear to be coming back for a third….

Executives at AEG Live, the promoter of All Points West, say they have not yet decided whether it will return for a third year.

“There is no question that our biggest challenge is finding suitable headliners, and it has been more challenging this year than in the past,” said Mark Shulman, a veteran talent buyer for AEG. “No final determination of any kind has been made for 2010.”

But many in the music industry doubt whether All Points West, which has been held in August, will return this summer. A number of prominent booking agents and other executives, most of whom requested anonymity because they did not want to jeopardize business with AEG, said that nothing had been booked and that it would be very difficult for AEG to put a lineup together this late in the year, since most artists’ plans for the summer were already set.
