Jack Johnson Joins Radiohead For APW, Jersey’s Summer Music Fest

As revealed yesterday, the inaugural APW Festival — AKA Jersey Coachella — will indeed feature two nights of Radiohead. And one of Jack Johnson, which we predicted. (JJ’s also playing Coachella and Bonnaroo; there is no escape, friends.). All Points West, which hits Liberty State Park 8/8-8/10, is touting its Radiohead coup as follows: “This marks the first time that a cutting-edge band will headline multiple nights of a major U.S. music festival.” Meaning moe.down is a minor festival or moe. is not cutting-edge! Burn. Anyway, two Radiohead setlists means they’ll play “Creep.” Hurrah.
