Proof That Phish Has the World's Most Dedicated Fans

1. They Come From Everywhere

Phish's following will literally follow the band anywhere. Many in attendance over the weekend at Dick's Sporting Goods Park flew in from all over the country. Some fans drove from Massachusetts and Vermont, in some cases without tickets, hoping to score some in the parking lot. Many fans used to follow Phish in the nineties and camp out, and now they are flying in and staying at hotels. We met people from all over the country. There seemed to be more non-locals than locals, especially in the Shakedown Street market/tailgating area outside the venue.
