Review by CanadianPhan

CanadianPhan My first show. We were going to do Darien Lake because it was closer but my buddy said that this 2 day festival was the show we should go and see. Boy was he ever right even though the Darien Ken Kesey madness sure sounded like fun.

We drove forever from university in Guelph, Ontario to get up there and really went through the ringer at the border b/c someone found rolling papers (but nothing else). I had not heard much Phish except for Junta, Rift and Billy Breathes but those were enough to know the band was amazing. I had not heard any live shows and did not know anything about the Phish lot scene. Needless to say, after this show I was hooked on the scene, the band, the whole works...

The tapes speak for themselves. My highlight would have to be the Halley's>Cities>Llama run from the 3rd set but it was a sweet day all around despite the mud and rain from the night before.


Phish.net 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.
