In just three short weeks, PHISH will make their triumphant return to Red Rocks in Morrison, CO for their first performance in 13 years at the legendary amphitheater. The band was banned in 1996 after numerous local complaints about illegal camping and unquestionable behavior of the fans in the small community of Morrison. Flash forward to 2009, where local organizers have put together an alternative to illegal camping by securing a private campground with transportation and late night music included in the ticket price.
The Phamily Reunion, which will coincide all four nights of PHISH at Red Rocks, has a solution for everyone. Ticket holders and those who weren’t lucky enough to get tickets to see PHISH, are all invited to join the all-night party taking place in serene Idaho Springs, CO. After brisk initial ticket sales in 4-day camping passes, event organizers have just released one-day passes to the event, scheduled to go on sale on Thursday, July 9th 2009.
The four-day celebration has already penned an amazing line-up of national acts including The New Mastersounds, EOTO and the “glitch goddess” Ana Sia among five new regional additions to the lineup including: Mama’s Cookin’, Stanky Pockets, Chris Webb Band, Seismic Shift and J Wail Vs. Agobi Nick. More surprises are to come and tickets are going fast, making for great anticipation of the four-day camping and music event in the beautiful Colorado Front Range July 30 through August 2. Day shows at the campground will warm the dancing feet and late-night shows will keep the festivities rolling into the night. To top it off, the festival offers the opportunity to camp under the Colorado stars, whitewater raft, fish, hike, horseback ride and soak in the hot springs.
