Time to go Phishing. The jam band extraordinaire has planned its eighth festival, the cleverly titled Festival 8, for Oct., 30-Nov. 1 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif. (that will be old familiar stomping grounds for Coachella attendees).
This festival differs from the past Phish festivals (with cuter titles like the Clifford Ball, the Great Went, etc…OK, the sixth one was just called It) in that it’s the first to extend three days and the first on the west coast. For those keeping count, it’s also Phish’s first festival in five years.
Phish will play eight shows over the the three days (meaning their concerts will last 70 of the 72 hours). The tickets go on sale on Monday and are $199 for the three days.
