Initial Artist Announcement: All Good Festival

As we mentioned here previously, the All Good Festival is relocating this year from West Virginia to Legend Valley (formerly Buckeye Lake) in Thornville, OH. Today they made their initial artist announcement for the July 19-22 festival. If you’re a jam fan, this looks like a solid lineup so far. I’m most excited about Lettuce and Galactic, but there are plenty of acts worth checking out. According to organizers, there are 20+ acts still to be announced, so hopefully the lineup will end up a little more musically diverse.

The 2012 All Good Festival lineup includes:

The Allman Brothers Band
Phil Lesh and Friends
The Flaming Lips
Bob Weir & Bruce Hornsby featuring special guest Branford Marsalis
Michael Franti & Spearhead
G. Love & Special Sauce
Shpongle presents The Masquerade
Mickey Hart Band
Trampled by Turtles
Railroad Earth
The Werks
The Wood Brothers
The Lumineers
Everyone Orchestra
The Rex Jam

Festival news: All Good relocates to Legend Valley (Buckeye Lake) for 2012

Though the news leaked a few days ago, a press release yesterday made it official: The annual All Good Festival has moved from West Virginia to Legend Valley (formerly Buckeye Lake) for its 2012 incarnation, July 19-22.

This is exciting news to me, and for the Ohio festival circuit. Though I’m not a stereotypical jamband enthusiast, the All Good lineups have often intrigued me over the last ten years. The festival has always had a solid undercard of jazzy, funky, worldly, etc. acts that I was interested in. Though the middle of West Virginia wasn’t a particularly long drive away, however, it always managed to be far enough to keep me from going and/or from convincing friends to go. Therefore, now that the fest is much closer, I have hope that the lineup this year will hold the same promise and will be a solid attraction to local fans of a variety of jams. Look out for further updates as the date grows nearer, and also, if you’re very lucky, a sequel to this (don’t worry about reading that, just skip to the comments).
