As expected, jam band Phish will hold its eight festival at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif., from Oct. 30 through Nov. 1. The event, dubbed Festival 8, will be the band’s first three-day festival on the West Coast.
Over the course of three days, Phish will perform eight live sets. The event will also feature other attractions, including art installations. For its Halloween performances, Phish will keep its tradition of playing an entire album by another band. A news release for the festival did not list other scheduled artist performances.
Tickets for the three-day Festival 8 will go on sale July 27 for $199 (plus service fees). The passes can be purchased here . Parking for the event will be free, but concertgoers who wish to camp will be charged an additional $15 per car and $125 per RV.
Festival 8 will mark Phish’s first festival since its August 2004 farewell concerts in Coventry, Vt. In its final year of touring before splitting, Phish grossed about $20 million, including about $10 million from the final Coventry performances.
