Top East Coast music festival to go
‘where those chilly winds don’t blow’
July 9-11 at Marvin’s Mountain in Masontown, WV
JEFFERSON CITY, MD. – Walther Productions is moving its flagship music festival, the All Good, into thick of the summer festival season, where the weather should be just as hot as its reputation as one of the East Coast’s premier campout music festival events.
The newly crowned ALL GOOD SUMMER Festival and Campout, traditionally held the weekend before Memorial Day, will celebrate its ninth annual edition Friday, July 9 through Sunday, July 11 at Marvin’s Mountaintop in Masontown, WV, the site of last year’s event.
The scenic 643-acre site attracted thousands of festival-goers last year to the wooded rolling hills of West Virginia just 15 miles southeast of Morgantown. But this year, promoter Tim Walther promises festival goers that they will not have to battle the cold weather complications that arrived in 2002 and 2003.
“Two years ago, we went from two inches of rain and 40 degrees one day to freezing temps and snow showers the next,” said Walther. “We certainly cannot control the weather, but we can assure you that it will not snow on this year’s All Good summer celebration. So come join us this summer in the luscious green rolling fields nestled high in the West Virginia mountains overlooking Cheat River at Marvin’s Mountaintop. The weather being cooler in the mountains promises to serve as a retreat from summer heat and humidity as opposed to the foundation for another Survivor episode.”
The ALL GOOD SUMMER FESTIVAL AND CAMPOUT will play host to the most spectacular roster of bands ever assembled by Walther Productions, recently voted Best Promoter in the Baltimore-DC region in the Music Monthly 2003 Year-End Readers’ Poll. Performers and ticket information will be announced shortly.
“I can’t figure out if I’m just shamelessly self-promoting or if I have cabin fever,” said Walther, whose winter activities have been confined to programming the all-new Funk Box in Baltimore and promoting at several theaters in the Baltimore-Washington corridor. “But I am real excited about this festival season …it’s gonna be a hot one.”
