rbosco11 Hendrix and the people complaining...

I am not the biggest fan but I also have my share under my belt (i've been to 87 shows since 96 and I have been to all festivals since the Clifford ball). I've been to several NYE shows, hampton and all that stuff we know...

This festival + halloween run (yes, they put both together) was amazing. This is the first time we had a 3-day festival also, if I remember correctly. It does not top Florida, in fact nothing ever will. If you were there, you will prob agree w me.

The album covered was awesome. The Stones is the most classic rock band and Phish nailed the album in a 2hour set. Get a copy and you will be listening to it day and night...lol
They nailed every note. It was epic. the crowd went crazy and the vibe was amazing. This was a great choice for the scenario.

As for the festival, not sure what you are hearing, but security was super easy going (despite what people tried to put on the web), the crowd was selected since a lot of those "techno lovers" that hang out after the shows in the east-coast didnt make it here...the grounds and structure was 'off the hook', the venue speaks for it self...

The logistics was amazing (no traffic, no problems what so ever, no missing songs due to parking lot issues, etc). The weather was beautiful - perfect actually, under the californian sun. this was an overall great festival and very special. Much better than It, conventry (well, these were both weak compared to the ones from previous years...). In addition, i believe the total number of attendes was around 45,000 which is amazing for a festival!!!!! It made the site so clean, relax, and good to be around. A lot of people, but not overthetop.

Phish delivered an amazing album (cover) a lot of great songs, and all their heavy hitters: d.sky, free, yem, fluffhead, reba, 2001, mike's, tweezer, slave, jim, antelope, ghost, bowie, hood, golgi, etc etc etc

Furthermore, they also played an acoustic set where the entire crowd sat-down on the floor for the first 1/2!!! everyone was relaxing and enjoying the sun after a long crazy and amazing halloween night! Epic! Great festival Phish! Thank you so much!!!!! The album was a great choice and you guys f..n' nailed it to perfection! Could not have been any better!

All 3 nights for 200 bucks, also!!! You guys know it!
