On July 1st, 2nd and 3rd, Phish will be staging their 9th festival, dubbed Super Ball 9, in Watkins Glen, NY.
Why does this matter to those of us in Colorado? Well, quite simply, it leaves the Labor Day Weekend rumor of 3 nights at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park intact.
Here’s the official announcement:
Sensational. Mind-blowing. Fantabulous.
These are all words with the same amount of letters as SUPER BALL IX.
It’s Phish’s biggest. Ball. Ever. So big we can’t. Contain it. In one sentence. Super Ball IX, Phish’s ninth festival, will take place July 1-3 at Watkins Glen International. Located amidst the rolling hills of central New York’s Finger Lakes region, the site offers an abundance of campsites and is just a short drive from numerous Northeastern cities. Super Ball IX will mark Phish’s first-ever performance over July 4 weekend, and the first major music festival held at Watkins Glen since 1973’s legendary Summer Jam. It is also Phish’s first-ever performance at a facility with “Watkins” in its name.
Tickets for Super Ball IX go on sale this Monday, April 4th, at Noon ET here. On-site camping is included in the price of admission. Like previous Phish festivals, the event will include numerous activities, attractions and art installations in addition to a series of performances by the band. Camping and travel packages will. Be. Available. (Sorry, hard habit to break.)
