Phish “Save the Date” Halloween Festival Update: NOT California? Really?!?

california

I was up and off to a doctor’s appointment today when my crew started texting me that “California had been removed from the map.” Color me surprised, but it definitely appears that the Phish Halloween Festival will not be in California despite weeks of rumors and research that suggest otherwise. I’m not writing it off yet, especially considering Phish has to be watching the community reaction and reacting accordingly in the way that only they know how. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had their developer write some new flash animations on this long-ass timeline that the band has set to slowly release the news. I love the buildup and excitement, but fans are getting antsy and want to book their travel plans already.

    Although Cali floating away was a big surprise we still have NV, FL, VT, NY and TX….so I think its too early to tell….

    I’m just so glad it’s not California. I heard they dont really like California anyway. More specifically Californians. It’s probably not true. It’s just what I heard. It’s ashame that state always gets the shaft when it comes to bands playing there. It’ll be Texas probably?

    Ok so we al know that if you press command + then you can see CA hovering in the sky.

    IF YOU LOOK AT THE BOTTOM RED BALOON IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S HOVERING OVER INDIO, CA.

    The next one looks like its over bakesfield, the blue one is over San Francisco, and the Green balloon is over somewhere way up in NorCal.

    My theory is that after all the other states are gone the balloons will drop CA back on the map, the top three balloons will break away and the RED balloon will land in Indio CA and the boys will walk out onto the stage! Or all the balloons will land and each band member will walk out of a separate balloon.

    If anybody can pinpoint where the balloons are hovering over. I think they might me venues/cities that phish as played in the past.

    What venues has phish played in north east CA?

    also the the balloons have arrows pointing up and down = CA could go either way (TRICK or TREAT)

    MY SAM BOYD GUESS:
    let me explain my theory or one of them….
    how phish keeps us all guessing.
    and it looks like they really misled people which i assume made them pretty proud!
    but it does have to be someplace warm. and when i was volunteering for superfly productions at the first vegoose i read an interview with trey about playing there, he said “that when they played vegas in 1998, he and the boys decided that they wanted to throw a halloween festival in vegas in the future…so he was stoked to be apart of vegoose even if he’s not with phish anymore….”
    im paraphrasing.
    there is a weird and crazy desire to know first, or figure it out….and phish love to phuck with their fans in a good way…so it’s gotta be somewhere warm, prob vegas or cali….this texas thing has me wondering.
    i wont quit trying to figure it out.
    im calling boyd tomorrow posing as a Cross-Country Coach asking if my high-school cross country team can use the site for training for nationals that weekend…it’s a holiday weekend in Nevada as Nov 1st is Nevada day. I’ll see what they say.
    But they threw me for a loop.

    don’t ever read too much into anything.
    and in the end…this is fun.
    we all wish it was out state…our backyard…our guess
    none of these ideas and inside tip as for sure
    but it’s fun that a certainty.
    it’s fun for us and it’s fun for them.
