SIRIUS XM’s Jam_On channel and the members of Phish have worked together on the four-part series Phish: Festivalography. The special will air on Jam_On channel, SIRIUS channel 17 and XM channel 56, beginning Thursday, October 15 at 9:00 PM EST.
According to a release about the project, “Phish: Festivalography will explore Phish’s history as pioneers of music festival culture, beginning with their first festival in 1996 in Plattsburgh, New York, and continuing through their eighth festival, Festival 8.” Trey Anastasio, Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon and Page McConnell will each offer behind-the-scenes stories, anecdotes and memorable moments from past festivals, as well as released and unreleased musical performances.
The first segment of the series will focus on 1996’s The Clifford Ball and 1997’s The Great Went. In later installments the band will discuss the 1998’s Lemonwheel, 1999’s Camp Oswego and Big Cypress festivals and 2003’s IT. Additionally, Anastasio, Fishman, Gordon and McConnell will all talk about 2004’s controversial finale Coventry.
