I totally agree Mr. Nobody. At first glance I got real excited, even booked a room in Napa (know I could cancel), but then realized Furthur is only playing one day, and the fact that you can't buy single day tickets, it would be like a $2,000 festival for me and my wife. including gas food and lodging. think i might have to skp this one, would rather wait for something good to be announced at sweetwater or Terrapin crossroads.

Ok, so what other festivals are in that area, that Furthur could conceivably be performing at, that same weekend?
Or, perhaps, a festival yet to be named? Yeah, I'm fishing. It seems unlikely they would book a "one-off" show.
And I'm endlessly speculating on how it ties in with spring tour.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

don't make no difference to me.

furthur could do a one off. it's not like they are traveling across the country to get to napa.

i am hoping they just do their own festival 5/10-5/12, fri-sun, somewhere in norcal. play the night before in napa and warm up
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?

wow I saw it was 300 for the festival but I didn't know they want an extra 100 for thursday (before the 49ers discount)... that's pretty outrageous, especially if it's extra for thursday but then no single day passes for that day...

Yes- It's a great festival put on by good folks who like to raise money to help out autistic people. So if ya got the money and you'd like to go...Go for it! Enjoy! And Right On!
For those of us on smaller budgets and wanting to see more Furthur...Let the speculation begin! So now you've got the whole band together w/ crew and after Thursday night they are free...Maybe it's a one-off but why? It would be so easy to play at least Friday and Saturday. But where?
Shoreline? Fox Theatre in Oakland? Terrapin Crossroads? The Sweetwater? Some other major yet unannounced festival in some part of CA that would be good enough weather by early May? Hmmm... LA? But that would mess w/any plan to recreate the fall west coast runs we've had...Speculate away! You know you love to do it!

Well, I don't know if I could breathe right anyway after I got into the rarefied air of the Legendary Napa Valley. Remember, one of the things they are offering is civility. Civility costs a lot of money, ya' know. And to think for those tickets prices we could all go to Glastonbury if we plan ahead... This is really a Food and Wine Geek event. People who need the assurance of civility and fine dining in order to feel comfortable at a festival. Marketed to the rich, world wide. It will be considered cache to fly in for this from Manhattan, France, Italy, etc. It's for high rollers who think nothing of dropping 4 bills on a fancy restaurant for a dinner for 2. It does look like they are looking for volunteers to work the event. For those with the time that might be worth looking into.
