Pack your camping gear and book your travel plans to Watkins Glen, NY for MAGNABALL, Phish’s 10th 3-day music festival! The summer tour rumors were true! Fest X has been confirmed. Phish will put on their tenth 3-day festival this coming August in Watkins Glen, NY. The expansive landscape ensures there will be room for all who desire to attend. The monumental event will be well worth the time traveled, money spent and years waited. But that’s not all folks! Summer Tour dates were announced as well, you can find ticket information HERE! Get ready for Fest X, followed by the 5th annual Dick’s Labor Day run! And I have to extend a personal “Thank You” to Phish for starting the tour on the West Coast this year 🙂 The gesture has been noted and much appreciated!
Anyone who doubts the musical genius of Phish should note they are the only band ever to put on ten, count them ten, 3-day festivals throughout their career and play every single set themselves. It’s all Phish, all day and all night. No opening acts, no nighttime exclusives, no secret sets (by anybody but Phish). Three straight days and the repertoire to fill them (and you still won’t hear everything you want.)
The announcement was posted today on the official Phish website, www.phish.com. To make things easier for you, I’ve included the announcement here as well. (but definitely visit the website to get more details on tickets, camping, travel, etc). Tickets are already on sale, so go grab your campsite today!

Magnaball continues a tradition that began with The Clifford Ball in August of 1996. Rolling Stone observed, “It was definitely groundbreaking…there was a real story; that in an age of corporate sponsorship, this completely home-grown thing happened that was different from any other concert.”
