For some reason I was under the impression that this was going to be sort of a festival like they did at Indo. After looking online I saw that the shows begin at 7pm. Which mean there will only be time for 2 sets as they do with a normal show. Am I reading this wrong? Phish's pr is coming off as it is a festival when it's really just 3 shows. I'm confused.

Yup. Your assumption is correct. This is just three regular shows.

The only was this is like a festival is that you can buy 3-nite packs of tickets. Otherwise, it's just 3 Phish shows in AC.

Three regular shows....you can party in the lot before hand but since many people are going to be at the hotels I would anticipate that some of that partying will be done privately/at hotel pool etc

This is kind of disappointing. Regardless of that it will still be a really fun time.

i thought so too but i came to the realization you just did about 3 months ago so im a little more mentally prepared ;)

do you people think its safe to assume there will be a sh*t ton of people walking to/from the strip to the venue (and/or ample cab/shuttle/bikeguy sitches) and i shouldnt be worried about getting back and forth? cuz i kinda am haha

When we went for another festival last summer it was tons of people...I would say getting there will be no issue BC you can get a cab at any hotel
Coming home will be a little more interesting......when the show ends there are going to be a lot of people looking for cabs so I would say either skip the encore our be willing to chill for a bit/walk home

i dont mind walking, its the sketch factor (not the good kind, the AC kind), i imagine we'll be with a group anyway

thanks guys!

Im sure there will be 100's of people walking south on Albany to the boardwalk. Everything will be kosher.

i worked in AC for 20 years and can confirm this part. the route from venue to Boardwalk and back is one of the main arteries into/out of the city so the sketch factor will be lower there. use caution and travel in groups anywhere off the boardwalk late at night, but Albany Ave itself will see lots of foot traffic and i would expect a police presence along that route to insure safety...so i don't foresee any real safety issues there. if you are traveling solo try to stay with groups though. while you aren't traveling through the inner city part of AC, that element does exist and desperation makes people do bad things and take advantage of situations that leave you vulnerable. so don't make a target of yourself by walking around late at night spun out of your mind, ok?

buses run up and down Atlantic Avenue (walk over the bridge into Atlantic City, turn left at the monument) and jitneys run on Pacific Avenue which is one block closer to the ocean/Boardwalk...both run all night. so if you need a cheaper option or can't find a cab, use those. bus and jitney stops are clearly marked. just ask the driver to make sure the one you get on goes where you need it to go. from that side of town, some divert at center city (near the Expressway/Caesars/Trump Plaza) and some will run all the way to the other side of town (Revel/Showboat/Taj) and some will go to the Marina District (Borgata).

if anyone has other questions from a local perspective let me know. :)

prostitutes on Albany Avenue...that would be new and different! they usually stay on Pacific Avenue, between the Trop and Trump Plaza, or at the HIV and methadone clinics further uptown.

yeah...for those who haven't seen the HBO special about prostitutes in AC, i reallllly wouldn't suggest spending much time with them. :lol:
