SIRIUS XM’s Jam_On channel will broadcast Phish’s Festival 8 live from Indio, CA, beginning Friday, October 30. The station will broadcast from Indio through Sunday, November 1, including all eight of Phish’s festival sets. Additionally, before and after the “classic album” set on October 31, Jam_On host Jonathan Schwartz will take calls from SIRIUS XM listeners about the performances at “Festival 8.”
“Everything feels fresh and new. And everybody in our family, from our tour manager, to our production manager, to our guys on the crew, to our management…everybody was excited about doing a festival,” Trey Anastasio recently told the station.
As previously reported, SIRIUS XM’s Jam_On channel recently broadcast “Phish: Festivalography,” a four-part series featuring the members of Phish discussing music festival culture, beginning with their first festival in 1996 in Plattsburgh, New York, and continuing through Festival 8.
