Halloween in California? Don’t like Phish? Go To Las Tortugas
No offense to the promoters behind this year’s Las Tortugas Music Festival, but they clearly did not do their homework and decide to hold off this year given that they’ll be in direct competition with the Phish Halloween celebration dubbed Festival 8. It’s a good lineup and all, even if it’s about a 90% overlap of all the artists that just played High Sierra, but I just don’t see their festival selling enough tickets this year to justify the cost. That said, I do know one or two folks that still don’t care for Phish and may consider something like this instead, but to any of those folks my response is simple.
Are you sure?
Okay, well carry on then. Lineup after the jump.
Las Tortugas Artist Lineup:
Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk
Tea Leaf Green
Hot Buttered Rum
Bag of Tricks (featuring Zach Gill, Steve Adams and Dave Brogan of ALO)
The Mother Hips
Blue Turtle Seduction
Dave Brogan Band
Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers
Pimps of Joytime
Poor Man’s Whiskey
Tistrya and Friends
