Magnaball has begun!
It’s pretty fair and downright obvious to say that Phish knows a thing or two about throwing a music festival, Magnaball being their 10th. So far the reports on the ground have been nothing short of elated. The band is webcasting all weekend through their LivePhish.com apps, so click here to purchase the sets from home and follow along.
We’ll be gathering our favorite links, photos, setlist notes, tweets, ‘grams, and many more things as they pop up on the internet here as the shows happen…
