Stagecoaching to Randall's Island
First, build a time machine out of a Delorean. Travel back to 1885. Spot an out-of-control stagecoach. Save the passenger and fall in love with her. Convince her that you are a time-traveler from the future, and that it's very important you attend a Phish concert at Randall's Island in 2014. Quickly explain what Phish is, the importance of touring to an artist's bottom line, how online music distribution in the streaming era comes with its own set of challenges. Equip her stagecoach with flux-capacitor technology. Return to the present time, making sure to avoid rush hour. Follow directions from the Bruckner Expressway. Note: There is no on-site stagecoach parking at Randall's Island.

It's that time again to open the doors to The Freezer, an official Phish Archive merch store, at Randall's Island. The Freezer will feature a number of shirts, hard goods, posters and other items from Phish's past, available for purchase. All are original items from the band's collection, and not reprints. They include items from 1996-2002 and are extremely limited (we're talking 4-5 of each style). The WaterWheel Foundation will be the recipient of a percentage of all sales in The Freezer. You may remember how fast the Freezer thawed at Bader Field two years ago.
Everything in The Freezer has been archivally stored and preserved. In addition to Ts, we'll be offering a very limited number of rare posters from the Phish Archives (again, all part of their original runs; NOT reprints), including classic Jim Pollock posters. These posters will be available in very limited quantities and we're expecting them to go fast.
As if that wasn't enough, this year, we're happy to announce that The Freezer will play host to the JEMP Records Store, on site at Randall's Island.
We're excited to announce that Phish will release A Picture Of Nectar, the band's third full-length studio album, as a Limited Edition Deluxe 2-LP vinyl set, available exclusively for the first time at the JEMP Records Store at Randall's Island. The LE Deluxe 2-LP vinyl set is limited to 7,500 individually numbered copies; 2,500 of which will be available at Randall's (the remaining quantities will be available in stores at at Phish Dry Goods at a later date, so fans at Randall's will get the first crack at the release months in advance). This will be the first time A Picture of Nectar has been pressed on vinyl.
A Picture of Nectar was mastered by Bob Ludwig and released by Elektra February 18, 1992 on CD and cassette. The album went on to be certifed Gold. In 2014, Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering cut the lacquers from the original stereo master reels for the vinyl edition. Each LP is pressed onto 180g audiophile grade vinyl and includes a free MP3 download of the album (transferred from the vinyl master).
A Picture with Nectar
What better way to celebrate the release of A Picture of Nectar on vinyl than by getting A Picture WITH Nectar. We'll have a photo-booth on site to get your picture taken with (well, a life-size facsimile of) Nectar Rorris, owner of the famed Nectar's in Burlington, VT . A perfect way to remember the weekend.
The WaterWheel Foundation

We'll be hosting a number of great non-profit organizations at Randall's Island and we could not be more excited than to have The Big Apple Circus be a part of our event. Through their Clown Care program, each year Big Apple Circus brings the healing power of laughter to 225,000+ children in 14 different pediatric hospitals in the US.
In addition, the Hippieshop.com (the same folks who brought us the Festival 8 Van, the Watkins Glen Camper and the Bader Field scooters) are giving fans a chance to win a "Fuego" low rider bicycle.

Don't forget to stop by the booth to take photos in the photo booth as well. All activities will begin at 4PM, so arrive early to win prizes and get discounted subscriptions.
Sixpoint Brewery & Beers of the Boroughs
Years of marketing research and focus groups have revealed that Phish fans, given a choice of a wide variety of beverage options, often choose a fermented concoction made from cereal grains. Sixpoint Brewery has brewed a special beer for this event to raise money for WaterWheel Foundation. "WaterWheel ImPale Aler", an unfiltered American wheat-based pale ale is straw in color with a malty backbone and just enough hops to keep things interesting. The perfect beer for a mid-summer's concert with a 5.4% ABV. It will be available exclusively on site at Randall's.
In addition, we'll also have a Beer of the Boroughs area, with brews from Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, The Bronx, and Staten Island (Sixpoint Brewery, Alphabet City Brewery, Singlecut Brewery, Flagship Brewery).
