From the desks of the folks at the All Good Festival
Thornville, OH (November 28, 2011) - After 9 consecutive years in West Virginia, the All Good Festival announces today that the 16th annual event will take place July 19-22, 2012 approximately 30 miles east of Columbus, Ohio at the historic Legend Valley.
Formerly known as Buckeye Lake Music Center, the sprawling festival grounds of Legend Valley have played host to some of the most memorable live performances of the past five decades including half a dozen Grateful Dead concerts as well as tour stops from Lollapalooza, AC/DC, WOMAD, The Allman Brothers Band, and numerous Hookahvilles.
All Good Festival organizers pointed to the convergence of a welcoming rural country vibe and simple venue access, less than a mile from Interstate 70, that will dramatically alleviate the challenges and frustrations of fans and local residents at the festivalâs previous site in West Virginia.
âWhile Marvinâs Mountaintop was a brilliant place for the music and camping aspects of the All Good Festival, getting over 12,000 cars up and down single lane country roads was problematic,â said All Good Festival founder Tim Walther. âWe felt that offering a similarly fantastic music and camping experience without the three to six hour wait time for fans and negative impact of traffic on the local community made the move the right decision.â
2012 attendees can count on All Good Festivalâs trademark model of no overlapping sets and no hard decisions. Two main stages host over 40 hours of non-stop music from a wide array of genres including the best of rock, bluegrass, electronic, jam, reggae, funk, and more.
Building from its humble beginnings fifteen years ago, the All Good Festival has hosted some of the worldâs most talented live performers including Furthur, Primus, Ben Harper, Widespread Panic, The Flaming Lips, The String Cheese Incident, moe. & hundreds more.
