Phish have announced their return to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., on Aug. 25 and 26 will be livestreamed for free. The benefit concerts are set to serve as a rallying point for raising funds to aid in the recovery efforts from the devastating floods that ravaged portions of Vermont and Upstate New York and will be shared on YouTube and LivePhish.com.
The event will mark Phish’s first performance at Saratoga Performing Arts Center since 2019 and the philanthropic nature and inclusive approach approach ensures that Phish fans, no matter their location, can be part of the movement to aid flood recovery efforts.
The heart of the initiative lies in the net proceeds generated from both the concert ticket sales and merchandise. The funds will be channeled towards The WaterWheel Foundation’s 2023 Flood Recovery Fund, directing resources to rebuild and uplift the affected regions. During the livestreams, fans will be invited to participate in the fundraising endeavor by making voluntary donations.
