It looks like we’re going to be putting those Phish / Dave Matthews Band festival rumors to bed pretty quick given the latest buzz update on the twitters. Bands That Jam is now confirming that Phish has signed into a contract putting their next festival at the heavily rumored Watkins Glen racetrack over Fourth of July weekend, a hard conflict for me and plenty of my West Coast crew that already made plans to be at High Sierra 2011 with Ween (among others). If there’s anything that could ever pull me away from High Sierra, it would certainly be a three-day East Coast Phish festival.

We’ll have more on the announcement as it’s made official by the band, as I’m sure we’ll need to wait for their webmaster to get the site set up to start stoking people’s interest for the festival.
