freakwentphlyer Amen Rbosco11 and Scott! This night was epic and while it was not my first album choice and I had never even heard the Stones album, I knew they were firing on all cylinders. They blew me away. The energy on the polo grounds was amazing. There were smiles all around and why not? The band was playing their asses off and backed up with a smokin horn section. And some are upset they announced it on the playbill? Seriously, how long did we wait for this? I've read bitchy comments from fans about the whole "map" fiasco and how they were pissed about "baby games" the band was playing and now there are some pissed about them revealing too early? Apparently they can't win. Fickle fans.

As for the venue, it was amazing. Period. Even way out in the field, the sound quality was fantastic. And as for the fest in general... security? Please. Each time I entered the venue, some dude tapped my torso 3 times and in I went. At the main gate they didn't even open our luggage. When they asked if we had glass bottles and we admitted we did, they let us go anyway! "Put it in a cup" he said. At my campsite I was surrounded by people from L.A. with weed from clinics and they smoked constantly. On Sunday fest security rolled up on us on horses while we were smoking a joint and reminded us to drink water and apply sunscreen. They didn't even blink about the joint. My only complaint about the venue at all is that it was so big that we had to hike a ways to get to the port-o-potties. Everything was a huge walk and there were lines everywere but really... for a fest this was about as good as it gets. "Naysayers stand down" indeed. Naysayers should cower. Phish busted out an epic show. Unlike anyhthing any other rock back could attempt. Cya at Fest 9! is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
