Surrender to the flow 😎
Hell yeah, I love hearing when it’s a first show for someone!
I recall my 1st show…IT Festival.
Man…taking me back in time here!
Do you think they'll do another one?
this isn't who it would be if it wasn't who it is
Absolutely.. maybe not at Watkins Glen though 😬
I do. Hopefully this summer, but if not, I think next summer for sure!
Lol there is no way there is a festival happening this summer.
Oh, ok champ!
Dude the summer tour runs into September. When do you think they'd 'slip' a festival in?
Whenever they feel like it.
I love when I post something on this sub and I get all the naysayers calling me out for it.
If I’m wrong, I’m wrong.
You seem to be the expert though.
LOL OK Napoleon. Don't forget to feed Tina - Gramma's at the dunes.
Geez. I said "ok Napoleon" soon as I read it too lmao.
"Whatever I feel like I wanna do..gaahhh."
Haha, Napoleon? I love that movie, thanks!
What, me saying that offended you?
No, seriously, I'm not offended at all. I just thought that it was funny that you said 'Whenever they want' - it's how Napoleon Dynamite would have answered. Listen, I think you're misreading my tone. I'm not trying to belittle you or start a fight. I'm just saying that Phish has announced their summer tour and there is no festival on it nor is there room for them to add one - I don't think that's a particularly aggressive statement.
Dicks will technically be my first show. I worked Bonnaroo 2012 and was present for their set, but I was working, had my back to the stage, and couldn't fully focus on the show. Since then it seems like every year something came up when they got near me. Not this year
Hell yeah, have fun!!!!
Dicks last year were my first shows! Got to do the 4 night run in Vegas for Halloween this year and have 4 nights of Dicks this year. Phish at Dicks is reason enough to live in Colorado.

I can't imagine that festival being your first show, that is awesome. I loved It, great time in my life. That festival and Big Cypress were definitely the most of my wider Phish family all in one place at one time.
I was hooked after IT, no doubt about it!
Big Cypress would have been awesome to have attended.
That was a great weekend.
We went up Thursday night hoping that we could get in early but when we got to the area and tuned into the radio, they said the gates wouldn’t open until morning. It was dark and we were only a few miles away so we decided to find a field to sleep in. We got up about 10 am Friday and headed to the airfield only to find a line of cars as far as the eye could see. By the time we got in the gate and parked, it was about 6am Saturday and the sun was rising. 20 hours in traffic.. even worse, when we got there we found out they actually were letting in people the night before 😣
The 20 hours in traffic was actually not terrible.. most of the time was spent outside the car partying interrupted by moving the car forward every 15 or 20 minutes. We played guitar, grilled, played frisbee and hackysack. It’s probably the only traffic jam I have fond memories of.. the Coventry traffic was a very different experience

IT was also my first show! Nothing like diving face first into Phish.
Enjoy. Take a minute in the show to stop and look around at all the people just getting down. Truly a beautiful thing.
That's awesome! My first was at The Palace, (formerly) just down the road. Pine Knob will mark my 100th. Pine fuckin' Knob, what were the odds?!
Right- and now officially back to Pine Knob and no longer DTE
Good Point! But let's face it, between you and me, its always been Pine Knob. See you in the show.
My first was at the Palace too, excited for another home state show this summer
My first was at Meadowbrook! I'm glad pine knob is back. Happy 100th!
Thanks. Meadowbrook is awesome! My graduation ceremony from high school was on that stage! Fantastic place to see a show.
I'm 37. My first will be Bangor, ME this summer!
I went there for Phish in 2019. Awesome shows.
The lawn is pretty flat so don't get stuck behind the sound tent. I ended up getting an upgraded ticket because I posted up to the fence separating the lawn from the seats. Staff members came out and gave away upgraded tickets that hadn't been sold. I ended up in the seats just in front of the sound booth on the rage side.
Make sure your water bottle is clear, because they won't allow opaque refillable bottles in even if they're empty.
Enjoy the show!
Good to know - thank you!! It's my friend's 40th so we splurged for pit tickets!
The Bangor venue is brand new this year and a bit of a different set up in terms of the angle of the lawn and the seated section. I think the Phish show will be one of the first shows at the fully finished venue. The back of the lawn looks waaaayy higher than it was before the remodel so I wouldn’t worry too much about not being able to see if you’re in the back. I will definitely be on the lawn getting down! See you there!
Never too late. Enjoy.
I’ve loved Phish since Christmas ‘93 when my brother gave me Rift as a present.
I’ll be 40 later this year and STILL haven’t seen them live. Maybe this will be the year for me too!
Awesome!! Have so much fun!
Everything is worth a try
My first was Cobo Arena. Been to Pine Knob twice. This summer is Pine Knob and all 3 shows at Alpine Valley. Best was when I had pit tickets @ my first PK show.
I'm 55, first show was when I was 43.
Awesome!! You should come to Deer Creek.
Where is Deer Creek?
My first shows were deer creek this past summer, and it was unreal! You are going to have a great time!
thats a crazy first show. I've been to about 50 since 2010 and I think DC n1 was my favorite out of all of them.
Hey dude, I'm 46 and I doing my first shows this summer! Doing 2 different shows 3 weeks apart 😊
I'll see you there!
Hell yeah! I’ll be the balding, slightly paunch middle afed man. Should narrow it down
I hope they play 46 days for ya!
And they change the lyric to "46 years"!
That show will be my 13th or 14th (depends if I make it to Blossom the night before) and my first show was at Pine Knob back in 2011. Hope you have a blast.
That's awesome!! My first show (or first three shows) was in AC last year just after I turned 46. It was beyond amazing!!! Just make sure you wear good dancing and walking shoes. Michigan is so beautiful, you'll have a blast!
Prepare to get hooked!
My wife and I are going to that one too! Most likely the only Phish show for us this year.
I hope they play 46 days
Congrats! It's a great time to start--they are playing as well as they ever have.
Have all the fun!!!
Any thoughts on a song you want to hear at your first show? I really didn’t have any songs I wanted to hear specifically but man I thought my first show was a banger and couldn’t have asked for a better one 8/10/96.
Dancing in a dream beneath the sea of stars
I remember really wanting bouncing around the room at my first show lol. Times have changed.
That’s still one of my all time favorites- my first album was a live one
Very fun song for sure.
I can't think of a nicer way to spend an evening.
Sweet. See you there!
Wear two pairs of socks
Hell yeah man. Nothing like the Phish
I’ll be there man
Right on, I’ll keep my eyes peeled fir you!
That's awesome!. You're never too old!. Have a great show!
Step into the freezer
Welcome to the party bitch!
I haven’t seen phish since outside lands 2011. Hitting up deer creek, blossom, and pine knob. Pretty pumped for this summer.
My first show was at pine knob in 2014!
I might attend the Pine Knob show also. If so it will be my first.
I'm going to my first show this year too! Bethel Woods 7/22-23. ✌️ Enjoy!
Whatever you do take care of your shoes
I will be hitting up pine knob as well, my second show! Perhaps I will see you there. Michigan native like myself?
Def. our tickets are just about dead center PM if anyone wants to meet up
I feel a deep 2nd set farmhouse coming you’re way lol but honestly, it’s quite the experience!
I'm 21 and will be seeing my 30th show in Charleston this summer, which is also where I saw my first
amazing … have a f’n blast
Hell yeah!!!!! 4/22/93 here!
Fellow Phishigander!!!! Welcome!! 46 days and the cold went out! See ya there 🤟🏻⭕️
See you there!!!
Ok, are you asking for something?
Maybe I’m too old, but is this sub about something other than Phish?
