Phish has announced the details for the free webcasts of their two special shows at the Broadview Stage at SPAC (Saratoga Performing Arts Center) in Saratoga Springs, NY on August 25 and 26, 2023. The webcast will be available for free at and Phish’s YouTube channel. Fans watching will be given opportunities to donate directly, and 100% of all donations will be directed to the WaterWheel Foundation's Flood Recovery Fund. The Flood Recovery concerts will benefit Vermont and Upstate New York flood recovery efforts. Communities throughout the region were inundated earlier this month with historic levels of rain and major flooding.

Limited tickets remain for the shows and travel packages are still available. A limited number of Foundation tickets are also available which include a ticket to the show, a private pre-show performance with Phish’s Trey Anastasio and Page McConnell, access to the Foundation Lounge before and throughout the show, and special Foundation poster and merch, in addition to other amenities.


100% of net proceeds from all concert and merchandise sales will be directed to The WaterWheel Foundation’s 2023 Flood Recovery Fund, which will support the many victims and their families, area businesses, and non-profits. The Recovery Fund will support both shorter-term needs and long-term recovery and resiliency projects.

Created by Phish in 1997 to oversee the band’s various charitable activities, The Waterwheel Foundation has been harnessing the kindness of the Phish fan community to create positive change for over 25 years.

The band's summer run will culminate with their traditional Labor Day Weekend run of four nights at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado. The band will then resume touring in October with a short run of shows in Nashville, Dayton OH, and Chicago.
