Coachella Promoters Launching NYC-Area Fest
 January 15, 2008, 1:40 PM ET
 Ray Waddell, Nashville
 
 Sources say Coachella producers AEG Live/Goldenvoice will stage a summer festival with major headliners at Liberty State Park, just across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan. The event will not carry the Coachella brand.
 
 Liberty State Park has hosted a handful of concerts in recent years, most notably a Radiohead show shortly before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
 
 The new event gives AEG/Goldenvoice a major summer presence in the area, where it will compete with the new Vineland festival. That event, promoted by C3 Presents and Melvin Benn's Festival Republic, will be held Aug. 8-10 at a 500-acre, privately-owned farm in Vineland, N.J., about 40 minutes outside of Philadelphia.
 
 Meanwhile, an announcement is expected in the coming days revealing the lineup for this year's Coachella festival, to be held April 25-27 in Indio, Calif.

East coast festivals have a pitiful history.

Wasn't there also rumored to be an East Coast Reading Festival a few years back, curated by Stephen Malkmus?

I thought the ATP festival was the one to be curated by Malkmus...
 
 Personally, I'd like to see a ATP or London Meltdown style festival.... Primarily indoor venues with lots of "faggy" indie bands to keep the meatheads away

I hope they are on the same weekend. In fact, I hope they're all in the same park, on the same stage, at exactly the same time. That would be awesome.

they can all be on different weekends, i just hope they all have essential the same lineups so people can bitch about the lack of variety between them.
 
 lets recap
 
 Vfest
 Coachella East
 Reading USA
 Bonnarroo
 Radiohead takes a dump festival
 
 plus the possibility of Led Zep, AC/DC, Pearl Jam on tour
