Coachella Promoters Go After NYC Market

Sources close to Coachella's promoters, AEG Live/Goldenvoice, have revealed the launch of another major festival to Billboard.com. The summer outing will feature some "major headliners" and take place at Liberty State Park—the occasional impromptu venue (including a 2001 Radiohead concert just before the September 11 attacks) across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan. It will not carry the Coachella brand, but it will likely be set up to compete with the Vineland festival, a Philadelphia-area effort by Lollpalooza's promoters that'll touch down in Vineland, NJ, on August 8-10.
An official announcement about this year's Coachella lineup is expected later this week.
