Phish Announce Curveball Festival, With ‘Unique Live Performances,’ for August

Phish has followed the recent announcement of their upcoming summer tour by unveiling plans for their 11th festival, named Curveball and scheduled for August 17-19 at Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen in Western New York State. Tickets for Curveball go on sale this Friday, March 2 at 12 noon ET. For weekend passes, camping, on-site accommodations, and travel packages, please visit curveball.phish.com.

Curveball will see Phish offering a series of unique live performances, alongside an array of activities, attractions and art installations. It marks the latest epic gathering in a tradition first forged by Phish in August 1996 with the Clifford Ball. The 2018 event marks the third Phish festival to be held at the legendary Watkins Glen International, following 2015’s Magnaball and 2011’s Super Ball IX.

Not coincidentally, Watkins Glen was also the site of a 1973 one-day mini-festival featuring Phish forebears the Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers and The Band, which at the time was the record-holder for largest audience at a pop festival.
