The details of Phish's Festival 8 revealed

Great news for those of you who missed out on getting tickets for Phish's upcoming four-night stand at Red Rocks next week. Ahem, actually, let us rephrase that -- this is great news for those with disposable income (yeah, we know, what is that, right?), vacation time and frequent flier miles to cash in: Phish has just announced Festival 8, a three-day extravaganza slated to take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California (yes, the exact same place as Coachella) during the weekend of October 30. Tickets for the event go on sale this Monday at 11 a.m. mountain time and can be purchased for $199 (plus service charges). Fittingly, Festival 8 takes its name from the fact that this particular fest will be the eighth one Phish has hosted, and presumably a nod to the occasion, the outfit will be playing eight sets over the course of 72-hours, including a special Halloween set, in which the act dresses up in costumes (natch) and covers a classic album in its entirety.
