The organizers of the All Good Music Festival announced Monday that the Ohio music festival will be taking a year off in 2014 and seeking a new location in 2015.

The multi-day music festival has been held at Legend Valley in Thornville for the past two years in mid-July.

Prior to that, the festival had been held in Masontown, W.Va., for a number of years. Last year's headliners included Furthur, Pretty Lights, Primus and Sound Tribe Sector 9.

According to the announcement on Monday, "After 17 consecutive years the All Good Music Festival is taking a year off in 2014 with solid plans to return in 2015 at an unspecified venue. Festival organizers Tim Walther and Junipa Contento are taking this time to develop and cultivate a long-term location for the return of All Good Festival by bringing it back home to the mid-Atlantic region, where they have proudly presented live music events for the past 18 years."

The festival organizers wrote, “We want all of our fans to know that we are extremely grateful for all of their support, dedication and the cherished experiences we've had on the mountaintop and elsewhere, and to rest easy knowing that the All Good Festival that we’ve all built together and loved for so long will return in the summer of 2015. Meanwhile, we will continue to present live music events in the Baltimore/Washington DC area.”
