As the summer festival season approaches, there are a number of things to consider when deciding on which festival to attend. First of all, how far is it? When is it? How much is it? Is it worth my time? Who's on the bill? Jam fans, rejoice! There's a brand-new festival making its debut this year just for you, called Phibstock. The event is going to be held in the gorgeous but secluded South Park Basin in Hartsel, Colorado, a mere two hours from Denver.
The festival is limited to 425 tickets, so it will most likely sell out and end up being the "sleeper" festival of the summer. The preliminary lineup has been announced, and includes Zobomazé, Whiskey Tango, the Magic Beans, Frogs Gone Fishin', Jet Edison, the Olora Brothers, Dorian Vibe and Rastasaurus. Word has it the yet-to-be announced headliner will make this fest well worth the time and money. We'll let you know when we get confirmation of who it is.
