For past Jammys shows, they have typically put together a slew of odd musical pairings so you can bet there will be some interesting conglomerations with the crew listed above. Plus, with Phish getting a Lifetime Achievement Award, the comeback of the Jammys may prove to be pretty solid; or it’ll at least serve to drum up some interesting Phish reunion rumors.

Voting has already begun for all the nominees and tickets are now on sale.
