Watkins Glen International track president denies Phish festival rumors


Due to some investigative reporting (a.k.a. doing your homework) via thestargazette.com, Watkins Glen International denies any speculation of a Phish festival:

A website called bandsthatjam.com is reporting that the group Phish has signed a deal for a four-day music festival over the 4th of July holiday at Watkins Glen International.

However, racetrack President Michael Printup said that information is incorrect.

Printup said track officials have heard a lot of rumors about a Phish festival, but that it's all speculation.

Watkins Glen International is looking at some kind of summer concert, but it's too early to even start talking about bands, Printup said.

"We don't know who is putting that out. There are a bunch of erroneous sites out there," he said. "We've been working with a concert promoter. But we don't even have a contract. It's all wishful thinking. We haven't even signed a contract with a promoter. You do that first. Then it's up to him to see what band he gets."
