Festival Express

With Super Ball IX on our minds, I figured I’d drop one highlight from each of the previous eight festivals to enjoy throughout your Tuesday.

Ghost” 8.16.98 II

Lemonwheel

As Summer ’98 came to a close, Phish began weaving in a new style of melodic, ambient jamming—present in this “Ghost”—that would become prevalent throughout the fall. This version is a gorgeous festival highlight that often flies under the radar.
