Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.

Once we get to the gate, I remember the guy that looked in our car asked me if we had anything besides weed.. "um, no." "Ok, you are good to go." As 20 something college kids, this was hilarious to us. Once inside my mind was blown! I was surrounded by 60k other fans that all trekked to the top of the Main for Phish! This wasn't just a music festival. Art installations, vendors, shake down. IT had everything.
You could tell from the 1st set that this was going to be a non-stop ride. Ya Mar and Reba both set the tone for the next 6 sets to come.
Set 3 was something of magic! Non-stop musical genius came out of the band. The highlight was Seven Below, Scents and Subtle Sounds, Seven Below. Towards the end of the set, Trey talked about the band never thinking about what they were going to play ahead of time. It sure worked with this set!
I wish I had a great story about the tower jam. I remember hearing a strange noise and seeing some lights around the tower. Our camp site was on the opposite side of the base and we couldn't tell what was going on. No one rallied to go check it out. Next day we regretted it.
In the end, I find it funny that the first song I think of when IT comes to mind, Dog Log.
