Bamboo at Phish Festival 8

My girlfriend and I attended Phish Festival 8 in late October, and we had a blast. The event was held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA. It was a 3 day event and Phish played a total of 8 sets throughout the weekend. In the main stage area, there were a series of bamboo towers that surrounded the stage. At night the towers spewed out giant flames making for a really exciting visual display.

At night the bamboo towers were light up with different colored lights. The band had lights surrounding the entire area, so the fans got a 360 degree visual display. The bamboo looked especially cool when lit up at night. Check out the pictures below.

The Empire Polo Club is a pretty tropical setting, with well maintained palm trees throughout the venue. The bamboo structures were a good complement to the rich green setting. We’re not sure who provided the bamboo for the event, but they did a good job putting up the displays.

Above is picture of us with a couple of structures in the background. We’re looking forward to the next big Phish event and hope to see more bamboo at similar shows in the meantime.

Missed festival 8, but saw a killer show at MSG in New York last Friday.
