Kate Langenburg/A&E Groove
For those of you lucky Phish phans going to Festival 8, you might be pleased to know that the band has officially announced its plans for setlists. The festival is three days long and there will certainly be no shortage of music. The band plans to play eight different sets during the three days.
Here is what seems to be shaping up as the official lineup:
- 4 pm: Concert field opens
- 7:30 pm: Set 1
- 10 pm: Set 2
- 12 pm: Concert field opens
- 3pm: Set 1
- 7:30 pm: the Halloween Set (please don’t pick Thriller as your cover album)
- 10 pm: Set 3
- 10 am: Concert field opens
- 12 pm: Acoustic Set
- 5:30 pm: Set 2
- 8:30 pm: Set 3
I know what you’re thinking. Did I read right? Are they really doing an all acoustic set? Yup, you got it. For the first time ever in the history of Phish performances, they have decided to go unplugged for the masses. They are starting the set at the crack of noon on Sunday, so make sure you still have energy left after your first two days of partying.
And yes, the Halloween Set usually includes some fun costumes and a good time. Phish picks one album from another artist and covers many songs from it during that time. There has been quite some speculation that this year, they will go with Thriller. I think that might be a bit much.
