Phish Confirms New Festival @ Watkins Glen: Curveball

Phish has confirmed that indeed they’ll be hosting a new festival this year at Watkins Glen. It had been rumored for most of the last year once the contracts started to get signed. And now it’s official and it’s spectacular: The 11th Phish Festival will be called Curveball.

Full details just dropped over at If this doesn’t warrant a bust-out of “The Great Curve” (ala Halloween ’96) we don’t know what will!

Phish Announces Curveball

Here is some more info from the source…

Curveball, Phish’s eleventh festival, will take place August 17-19, 2018 at Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, NY. Located amidst the rolling hills of central New York’s Finger Lakes region, the site offers an abundance of campsites and is just a short drive from numerous Northeastern cities.

Tickets for Curveball go on sale this Friday, March 2nd at Noon ET. Tickets will allow individuals to access the camping areas, however every vehicle entering the festival site will require a separate camping vehicle pass. These passes are sold on a per vehicle basis, so you can save money and reduce your environmental impact by carpooling. All Glen Close camping and on-site accommodation packages include a vehicle pass. Details about weekend passes, camping, on-site accommodations, and travel packages are available here.
