Review by whitty802

whitty802 Few days late on this, but thought it would be a good time to break the seal on my first review. I was in attendance for the full festival. Me and three of my great phriends made the trek from Greater Boston to enjoy an eclectic collection of artists that we had been drooling over for months. What's so unique about festivals (both Phish specific and others like Roo) is the freedom to roam as you please. I think it has a direct effect on the music that is laid out for us to indulge in; but also allows the listener to enter a much more relaxed space.

From start to finish, Trey and Co. made a POINT of removing any doubt in the mind of viewers (both present and streaming worldwide) the reason they headlined this legendary festival and were bestowed the coveted two set finale slot. The music was tight, experimental at times, but as clean as you could ask for. No we didn't get any 25 minute monster jams that get talked about for decades; but rather a perfectly intertwined assortment of old and new favorites that will keep any phan happy that they shared in the groove. Like most shows, to truly understand the delicacy and energy that was on display for this show, attendance is almost mandatory. The entire show is worth a listen, and I plan to for weeks and years to come. For the phan that wants a quick scoop of must listens, I'd put the true highlights as:

First Set: Blaze On, Reba, Sand (must listen)
Second Set: Twist (highlight of the show, but the sandwich as a whole is just as tasty); Ghost>Gin
