EOTO, U-Melt, Strange Design, Reunited Breadbox Band Set for Phan Phest
The fifth installment of Phan Phest will take place on August 20-23 in Kempton, PA. The Kempton Community Recreation Center is the locale for the event, which began in 2002 when ‘an intimate group of friends from the Gathering of the Vibes message boards were encouraged to gather on one acre of property for a barbeque, some keg beer, and some great music.’ This year’s line-up includes: EOTO, U-Melt, Juggling Suns, BuzzUniverse, Splintered Sunlight, The Indobox, Dakini, Turtle Soup, The Point, Project 222, The Jack and Strange Design, which will offer two sets of Phish on Friday before closing out the event on Sunday. In addition, four of the original members of The Breadbox Band will perform as BOX (drummer Chris Pedersen, keyboard player Jordan Simms and guitarists Dave Halchak and Chris ‘Naldi’ Rinaldi) along with Brian Gallo of Roy Hobbs Agenda on bass. Tickets for Phan Phest 5.0 are now on sale for $65.
