Phish to hold 3-day festival at Coachella location

July 24, 2009 1:49:28 PM PDT
Phish is headed to the Coachella Valley for a three-day music festival all its own. The Vermont-based band on Thursday announced the location of its first big event since reuniting earlier this year. It will take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif., home of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

The band teased the Oct. 30 to Nov. 1 gig on its Web site for weeks with this cryptic message: "Save the Date."

Turns out that was a nod to the area -- the nation's primary date-growing region -- and the festival's title.

"Save the Date" will see two Phish traditions: enormous outdoor festivals featuring marathon sets, and Halloween shows during which they put on a musical "costume" -- playing an entire album by another band.
