Is the RV just gonna be there?  Or do you/we pick it up somewhere??

It will be there ready and waiting for you when you arrive. It's hardwired for power so no running the generator. they even empty and refill the tanks once per weekend.

I remember walking out of Magnaball Saturday(?) night and the entire network of site bathrooms were down due to a pump problem or something, and the portashitters were all full after the long day. Nasty stuff.

PG I bet you can squeeze more than 4 in that RV.

It is about double what you would pay to rent an RV for that amount of time, but you avoid the worst part of renting an RV, which is driving it and having to clean it/dump it/return it.  It's a premium for sure but renting and driving an RV is a fucking pain.  You also limit your chance of ripping the AC unit off the roof when you got to pick up your friends at a hotel and the lobby roof has low clearance  :| That was a bummer.

What's up with Glen Close? Is it just ... closer? Why so much pricier?

So let's say you have an RV full of people. The Glen Close RV thing comes with two person passes. If you have, like, two extra people, they have to buy additional Glen Close weekend passes for $425 ... so that's $175 more than regular just to sleep in the RV you already paid Glen Close prices to park there? I'm confused.

honestly, the $5k isn't that bad.  that's right about what 3 nights at a luxury tent in Africa costs... no :phish: included, but at that price you usually get all meals, drinks, and laundry, as well as an en-suite bathroom.  and a butler.  and a shitload of animals. 

hit me up if any of you loaded w00ks would prefer that instead.

the most deadly animal there is actually the hippo, by far, killing upwards of 3,000/year.  if i can give you a tip:  never get between a hippo and water, and if in the water already, never get between a hippo and deeper water!

Seriously, we went out in a tiny little wooden boat to check them out while in Ethiopia.
This guy was one of about 4 right next to us.
They could have easily flipped it and made a meal out of us.

It kinda "Sold Out"
They posted online said it was "Sold Out" and people to not come if they didnt have a ticket already. But really if you showed up they sold you a ticket as long as other people in the car had one....so it was like they wanted to cap it but didnt shut anyone out if you went against their request to not come

Maybe it's been mentioned here already, but, some people I know (whom I do not trust in this regard) are convinced that the Curveball is going to have to do with band members side projects.

Supposedly, like an Oyster head reunion or some shit.

Fwiw, I think this is a terrible idea, unless they have side project band members rotating on and off the stage during an epic 4th set jam session.

Have you ever heard of extra innings?  Also, as far as that side project stuff,  I suggest you stick to getting your info from the Paug dude.  If someone honestly thinks Phish is going to use their own festival for an Oysterhead reunion, they're on bath salts.

Allow me to get on my soapbox...

Iíve decided to skip Curveball and cancel all pending trips to the USA. I canít imagine crossing the border under the current US administration - Iím going to ďBuy CanadianĒ and travel in Canada for the foreseeable future.

Phish management was super cool and refunded my ticket purchase.

It was a really difficult decision, and Iím bummed.

ETA... Iíve worked with FGT wristbands for years at acl fest. The email you got has a link to register your wristband... my advice is DO THAT ASAP. It is totally worth it.

Once it is registered to your name they can take care of you if anything happens... like you lose it or whatever. Theyíre actually really helpful as long as you register because they can shut your old one down and render it useless and issue a new one.

Still not seeing why that is stopping any normal person from going to a phish show.
Letting american politics dictate your own enjoyment of life is pretty pointless since it is a schizophrenic institution at best that can completely do a 180 in terms of policy over night with each election.

Definitely lines early on, but IIRC it was open pretty much all day/night, and the store had copies of most of their vinyl releases. They had a few listening stations and definitely only let so many people in at a time. I don't remember if they had a limit on number of copies you could purchase at one time of the new releases, but I feel like they did. Maybe 4?

There was also a bag check to hold your stash until you picked it up, and I think they had mailers.

Haven't they announced the 'Surprise Set' the past few fests? I wonder if they really are going to drive around the campsites in the hotdog on the back of a flatbed truck playing as they go.

Not for the last 3. There was no overnight surprise at Fest8, I'm pretty sure...? Nor at the Fest That Shall Not Be Named.

Totally bummed to be missing this fest. Originally it was the weekend my oldest got back from working in NM all summer, si I hadn't made any plans, but he was able to finish up a week early and got back late last night. So, plus is being able to see him for an extra week before he goes back to school, minus is missing the fest and catching up with paugers again this summer.

Thank god for XM, LST's and couch tour. IIRC though, the Bunny didn't carry the drive-in set from Magna...

Friend of mine was supposed to be camping at Watkins Glen State Park through tomorrow night. He said it's been raining nonstop so he's been in a hotel instead. Lots of flooding and road closures. For those that have Wednesday entrance passes, good luck. I'm staying at the state park tomorrow night so I wonder how much fun that will be.

-------------------------------

So Iím local and work in emergency services. Maybe I can put some of these rumors to rest.

The flooding IS bad. Iíve lived here 22 years and never seen anything on this scale. Itís been raining since July and the ground and creeks are over saturated. WGI, however, isnít really in danger of any massive flooding geographically. Theyíve gotten through countless races with severe weather, including a small tornado and torrential rains, before. Theyíre pros at this. I do, however, think itís very likely that youíre going to wind up with some very wet, saturated, soggy fields. Cars get stuck in the mud so regularly up there on a good summer(this hasnít been) that they keep tow trucks on hand to pull them out. So plan for that. If youíve got a tent, I would consider something to put under it. I donít tent camp, so I canít be more specific. But I honestly donít see anything close to a complete wash out happening.

Around the area is a different story. Roads arenít just flooded; theyíre gone. A campground basically got swept away last night and many people were rescued by boats. A local trailer park is gone. People have lost pets, houses, possessions. Montour Falls, just down the hill, has been hit hard as has Watkins Glen and a little farther north. Emergency services are taxed to the breaking point and are to start operations up at WGI tomorrow. We are under a state of emergency. All the fire departments scheduled to provide fire and medical coverage this week are from hard hit placesóthese guys and girls have been up for days doing boat rescues, helping close roads, evacuations and pumping basements along with their regular fire and EMS coverage. They are all volunteer. Many have damage to their own homes. So when dealing with the locals, please just be kind and considerate. We all hope you have a great time and the weather clears for you; but weíve had a shit week and are exhausted.

Last night I messsged the Schuyler County Sheriffs Department and asked if there is anything they wanted me to tell you and also asked if they needed any help in any way from fans or if any local folks needed donations or supplies we could bring due to the floods, here is their reply, sounds like everything is looking pretty good:

ďThe flooding was localized to small areas and mainly effected roadways. Just have fans be aware of the saturated ground in the camping areas. The water has receded to almost normal levels in the creeks, so travel should not be a problem.Ē
solid.
Travel safe everyone. See yíall soon

yes.

Again, if anybody is going near Buffalo on the way back Monday and could spare a lift to the airport I'd gladly pay for gas.  My flight is at 2:40 so I'm worried about making it with traffic and returning the RV rental.  My friends can handle the RV but...

We got pulled over last night in Toledo, 3 blocks from our hotel, at about 3:00am.  The cop who pulled us over said our tail lights were out/off.  Mind you, we're driving a 2018 Expedition rental.

After he came back a second time, he asked us if he could search our car.  We asked him why that was necessary, then 2 more squad cars pull up.

5 minutes later, there is a K9 sniffing around our car.  After that, the driver of the car and front seat passenger are asked to step out of the car and are hand-cuffed, me and the other 2 people in the back step out, get patted down and have to stand behind the car with our hands behind our backs.

That's when Tait, who you all know, tells the original officer that he has a small amount of Marijuana in his bag.  Cop pulls his bag out, searches it, and takes the weed.

They then put all 5 us in the back of 3 squads, so the officers can go through everything in the back.  Obviously, at this point my feelings are that this is not going to end well at all.  I knew my friend had at least 5g of blow, a quarter of weed (vacuumed), and another passenger had over 10 pills of E.

10 minutes later, cop comes and says we can exit the squad car, and I see my friend finishing putting a couple bags back into the rear of the car.

Long story short, we got a ticket for our rear lights being off, Tait didn't get a ticket for the weed because the cop said he was honest.  Got to the hotel and hour later than expected and maybe lost a year or two of my life via stress, but we are currently getting the fuck out of OH asap.

See you fuckers later tonight.

I didn't want to be the first selfish one, but this really bums me out. If they go up on Dry Goods, I hope I wake up at the right time like I did for Rift. The flippers will be all over it if it hit's Dry Goods and the aftermarket price is gonna SUCK.

How was that selfish?
Don’t most of us want it?


I don't know if selfish is the right word I was trying to use. I couldn't figure out how to say that I am very sad that the fest isn't happening, and there will be no shows, and that thousands of fans had paid big money to fly across the country and rent RV's, and used vacation days at work. And here I am at home almost more sad about not getting the SSP.

Seriously though....this sucks. But I know damn well if there is a group of people out there that can make the best out of a shitty situation, itís this group. Go see upstate New York. Itís Gorges.

Wineries, waterfalls, mountains, trails, play music, play frisbee golf....or just get drunk together. But dammit....have fun!

The emotions here...........

Dude!  Holy shit!  I just spent all day driving from coastal Maine to Montreal via Route 2 through Vermont, the islands of Lake Champlain and a large part of upstate NY.  We drove past Goddard today, listened to Esther as we combed the Onion River near Plainsfield.  Saw Plattsburgh signs, just Phish history everywhere today.  To see and hear about this is beyond shocking. 
I feel for all of you.  This group is certainly among the wisest, mature I've known.  We all know change can happen at an instant.  Keep your heads up.  Think of the positive.  Perhaps they'll reconsider Loring for future fests?

My son was asking me what the lyrics to Esther meant?  Sometimes the eerie green deep takes many forms.

I'm sorry to miss Phish but, I've missed Phish before (generally my own fault). I'm most sorry about not spending this weekend with you fine (ha!) folks.

I did have a nice time cruising america in an RV with Modi, RJ (of HFPod) and a couple of his DC friends who are wonderful people. We camped Thursday with some other folks we know from the internet before heading south. I've had worse weekends but I've never before had a great weekend that also carried such a weight of disappointment.

You fuckers had better come to Hampton.


That being said, there's a great blog post on Phish.net today:

I've been trying to think of anything that felt like this before and the closest I can come is when the Dead had to cancel the second night of Deer Creek '95. But even that is nothing compared to the scope of this cancellation. A single show after getting one is nowhere near as tragic as canceling a Festival on the day it starts.  I couldn't even imagine how I would be feeling right now if I had been there. I'm super bummed, and I was only going to be watching the sets on TV.

Doubtful they would pull something together so quickly.  I would be surprised if they even had something by next summer.  That and NYE venue has been booked for 2 months.

They can unbook, plus nothing is official

I'm just saying that they can't (imo) let this go for a year

I have to say I'm surprised and increasingly disappointed by the general silence from the band since Thursday. Marshall is tweeting and the president of WGI is giving interviews. I'm sure the band is still crushed but there are tens of thousands of people who'd like to hear from them. Have I missed something?

Band statements need to be coordinated with actual information. I expect a lot of overtime is being burned to sort out what will actually be done about refunds, etc. when those questions are answered, something will be said.

I don't need any kind of promises, refund info or any of that right now. Just some amount of communication would be nice. So it doesn't seem like the fest got cancelled and the principals simply disappeared.

It does feel like they should say something. I'm wondering if their lawyers aren't telling them to keep quiet until the insurance part is figured out.

a make up festival is unrealistic.  an event the size of curveball takes 18+ months to plan.  there's no way they had another festival site even in remote consideration for any other event in the future as of a few days ago.  they had a great working relationship with watkins glen and put every ounce of effort into curveball.  i do think they got a bit screwed by the county and would not be surprised if they decide to never return to watkins.  which pushes their next festival even farther into the future. 

i don't think they owe us a festival.  i think they'll put on another one when and where it's right.

i don't think they'll be doing 3 sets a night at dicks because this doesn't make things right.  neither does a free barn couch tour. 

you are talking about a band who doesn't ever really use social media, except for mike's weirdness.  they've done dozens of 3 nights runs without saying as much as 1 single word to the audience.  i don't expect them to get chatty now.  and i'm sure management is telling them to keep quiet.  people are hot right now and you don't want to fan the flames.

best thing they can do is play 3 bomb ass 2 set shows in denver and then come up with something for next summer that is uniquely cool and uniquely phish.  i thought the baker's dozen was a lame idea and look how that turned out! 

things will be good.  just gotta give it time.

Bare minimum they need to release refund details in the next couple days. 

But yeah the suits are probably keeping them from issuing any additional statements, which is kinda lame but understandable given that millions of dollars are involved.

That's 8 days.
I expect something this week.

Disappointment is natural but I don't think there's any reason to get salty towards the band or their org. This was beyond them and they were also sad to see this go down.

In the interest of sharing information, here's a series of tweets from a guy I know who is relaying info from a reliable source (typos are his own):
Quote
attorneys at the governors office wanted to kick everyone out Thursday night because there was no longer a permit. She fought back hard against that. Superintendent of the state police told them there was no way in hell they were sending in the state police to kick people out
Quote
the state wanted to use the national guard to truck in water tankers but WGI said the ground was too unstable for high axel vehicles
Quote
phish considered trying to play on Thursday for everyone was already there but a) no permit, no show and b) they didnít think it would be fair to people who were coming in on Friday

Those second two hurt a bit. I hold no ill will towards the band, I know it wasn't their fault. It's just a state of mind and mood right now that most of us have not experienced before. So many 'What if's?' going around everyone's head right now.

If WGI nixed the tanker idea that's an interesting wrinkle. Stories I had read suggested there just wasn't enough time to pull that together. I do think, in hindsight, that the water aspect is a huge bit of exposure to leave in place. Do events like these also just count on the local electric utility for power, or do they have backup generators or some Plan B at all times? If I'm a festival organizer I probably line up tankers from the beginning from now on.

Post by: rowjimmy on August 21, 2018, 11:55:15 AM
Note that those were National Guard tankers, not commercial water suppliers. As I understand it, bringing in commercial water supplies in sufficient volume was not a timely option.
Title: Re: Curveball - 08/17-19/18 Watkins Glen
Post by: PIE-GUY on August 21, 2018, 03:23:15 PM
As I understand it, had the water supply issue popped up Monday, or maybe Tuesday, they would have been able to shoehorn a solution that kept the Fest from cancelling. The water was clean until Thursday morning... there is just no way they could solve this in 12-24 hours. If it was feasible, it would have happened, no matter the cost. Phish would have thrown every penny into solving it in any feasible way. Shit, they paid thousands of dollars just to have helicopters hover over the grounds in the week leading up to the fest just to dry out the ground we'd be dancing on.

Also, every time this fucking image pops up in my FB feed I get pissed off - it's like salt in the wound. FUCK Lock'n. Just sayin'.

An Update for Curveball Ticket Holders

Weíre all still reeling from the effects of the Curveball cancellation, and we know you are as well. We understand the commitment one makes in attending an event like this: from the logistical planning, to the time taken off from work, to the significant expense incurred that cannot be recovered (beyond the cost of tickets ó see below re: refunds). We deeply appreciate you, our fan community, for your understanding and for making the best of a difficult situation. We want to recognize artists, crew, vendors, volunteers and everyone who had been working on the festival, some for months in advance, to share their talents with you. Additionally, we want to send our appreciation and support to the people of Watkins Glen who welcomed us and are now themselves dealing with the effects of the flooding in their homes and businesses.

As the festival team continues to address the Curveball weíve all been thrown, we want to update you on a few things that weíre working on and we will send further details once theyíve been finalized.

Refunds: Everyone who purchased wristbands, vehicle passes, travel or rental packages via the official ticketing provider (Front Gate Tickets) will receive a full refund of ticket price, service fees and shipping automatically. Refunds will go back to the original buyerís credit card account. We appreciate your patience while we work through this process. Anyone who purchased on secondary markets or did person-to-person trades/sales should seek a refund at their point of purchase.

Dickís Webcasts: Starting tomorrow, all Curveball ticket holders will be able to redeem the code on their wristbands at livephish.com/redeem to watch the webcast of all three shows at Dickís Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO over Labor Day Weekend.

Merchandise: The severe flooding in the region didnít only affect us. It wreaked havoc across a 14 county area. We will be a launching a Curveball merchandise store very soon and donating the proceeds to flood relief and recovery. The store will include Curveball t-shirts, LE posters and other items (including the Nalgene water bottles intended for our CurveWater program). Curveball ticket holders will have first access to the store once live.

When SSP came out, I had just returned to the states from a year in Asia. I was at a Best Buy the minute they opened to grab it on my way to an early dentist appointment.

I remember having this realization the first time I heard the "Indians lying on dawn's highway breathing" segment that Jim Morrison was so filled with bullshit melodrama he sounded like a complete douchebag I could never take seriously... but Trey just sounded like a fucking tool... and a tool I can relate to. I'm a fucking tool.

And even in the depths of my acid days, I still just kinda dorked out on dumb shit. It was never that fucking deep mystical shit the Doors claimed to be after. Sure, it was internal and it affected me and changed my perspective on the world around me and all of that, but it was always a big cosmic joke. Life is just a bundle of joy. Surrender to the flow. David Bowie UB40. Boy Man God Shit.

The whole adventure is into absurdity not any kind of depth... and this segment of parroting, even mocking, Jim Morrison and his bullshit depth somehow crystalised the whole thing for me.

Plus, musically, this was a completely different band than the one I last saw at Clifford Ball... and I could not fucking wait to see them again. My next show was 12/29/97 - still one of my all-time favorites.

That's what I feared. Well I guess I'll have to pay at least $20 or so over face on ebay or discogs then. My shop is so small he only ever get's one copy of the Phish stuff and there's a dude who get's there at 3-4 in the morning, 7-8 hours before the shop opens ever RSD and BFRSD.

Of course not. Just seeing people getting psyched for the shows makes this sting again. Iím excited to see how the shows are after this letdown

Yeah, that's gotta hurt. I guess I can equate that to when Jerry passed away. The sting of us only doing the first night of Soldier Field that year has never left me. I was at the Penultimate show, but no the last one.

Looks like I got a $60 refund on my AMEX from Livephish.com that I shamefully didn't even notice.

FWIW I got 2+ emails about the consolation webcast of the Dicks shows, with a good code, and my refund for Curve hit my bank acct maybe 2 weeks ago. Also got paid for the shift I pulled thru Work Exchange Team. No complaints, other than the obvious.

Glad you got paid for the work you did. I was thinking that you guys might have been screwed.
