All Good to Move Venues in 2012

The All Good Music Festival & Camp Out will move from its longtime West Virginia home to Thornville, Ohio’s Legend Valley this summer. The 16th annual festival is slated to take place from July 19-22, 2012. Legend Valley was formally known Buckeye Lake Music Center and has hosted amphitheater-size shows by the Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers Band, Lollapalooza and AC/DC. The site has also been home to several Hookahville festivals.

A staple of the summer festival circuit, All Good traditionally takes place in the Mid-Atlantic region. The festival was held at Brandywine, MD’s Wilmers Park from 1997-1999 before moving to Capon Bridge, WV’s Buffalo Gap Campground in 2000 and Spotsylvania, VA’s Oakley Farm in 2001. After a year at Terra Alta, WV’s Sunshine Daydream Campground in 2002, the festival found a seemingly permanent home at Masontown, WV’s Marvin’s Mountaintop in 2003.

A statement from All Good’s promoters reads, “We had to weigh the impact of our traffic and presence on the local population and local officials who never warmed up to the festival, its legion of loyal fans and our “style”. In 2011 county officials went so far as to pass a crippling Mass Gathering Ordinance that directly targeted All Good and levied an outrageous tax on our event. We would much rather spend this money (your ticket money) on bands, safety and enhancements to your overall festival experience. Legend Valley has a rich history of hosting similar events and Thornville is excited to have All Good roll into their town. The community is better suited to host us and grateful for the business that we will bring to their rural location. For some of you in the east, the journey to All Good will be a longer drive, but with our entrance less than a mile off I-70, it may actually take you less time from your front door to your campsite. For all of you, our new site means fast, unobstructed, wind-in-your-hair interstate travel, straight to the lot. Grab your spot in the spacious camping pastures, and settle into the roomy, gently sloping amphitheater. No climbing and plenty of room to groove.”

The festival will once pledges no overlapping sets throughout the weekend.

“local officials who never warmed up to the festival, its legion of loyal fans or our style.” That’s an understatement. Now if we could filter out the nitrous mafia and other scumbags. Perfection!

Did they neglect mentioning the loss of life at the last festival? As if moving had nothing to do with that poor girl.

Both posts are the reason why they never “warmed up”’. Local farms having their water systems poisoned and polluted, kids passed out in their yards, nitrous tanks, drugs, upswing the restrooms on their lands…and the loss of life that was the fest’s fault….
But yeah….WV never warmed up to it I guess….
Apparently OH will let you do this to their lands. Their is no accountability in the statement. Sadly, my run of All Good fests is over. It has become dirty and drug infested.

It seems there are many festivals where good humble conscious people who are there for music and good vibes are held hostage by tweeker scumbags who want to make money off mostly stupid kids.

restrictions are what they are – I’ m an older fan and you learn to live w/ what won’t be changed. I just hope there is plenty of VIP parking and camp space for us old schoolers. The general adm. site is a little overwhelming sometimes

Yes, it did not bring Preston county any buisness,And it makes everyone forget that the water is already polluted by all your strip mineing and mines from years agoSo all the hippies peeing in it has made the whole area a depresseds, pill guzzeling, mountain dew shwilling, teeth rotting area. It was a terrible mishap with the young lady passing but ask most of your buisnesses what it did not just the wealthy few in MASONTOWN. There is always a few that mess things up. LOOK at your BATH SALTS EPIDEMIC. That has nothing to do with the festival.

There might be a definite sense of accomplishment that you come about being powering something naturally utilizing the sun’s energy all at once progressively metamorphosing into less reliant upon the system.
