Phases of the Moon: “One Small Step for Jam”
Phases of the Moon Music and Art Festival, located by Danville Illinois, the epicenter of Indianapolis, St. Louis, Chicago, and Nashville, will be the next ultra jam fest simply out of default. Besides the lineup, which is blatantly talented, there are so many visual artists that just naming them makes my face nearly teleport to the other side of the galactic. Spun Out Fire Productions, Tammy Firefly, Big Fun Circus, Subconscious Development Motion Project, an Fractal Tribe, along with many others, are going to leave the mind confused, in awe, and maybe a little scared, but happily satisfied. Perhaps that is the intention of art, which is clearly the attention of Phases of the Moon.
If the actual festival is as creative as their promo video released earlier this month, then I think we are going to be alright.
Phases just started an Instagram contest, #SeeYouAtPhases, that will run from June 5th through August 31st, and the winner will receive two general admission tickets to the festival. Oh yeah, and just because everybody loves a miracle, Phases will be giving away free tickets every single month, and all you have to do is click here to enter. That’s like getting paid more than $400 for 30 seconds of work! That’s decent.
There is also an upgrade for VIP, an upgrade that doesn’t take you away from nature but comfortably provides you with an effortless and comfortable way to live in it. It is called the Show Sherpa Upgrade and it gives you cots, a tent, pots, pans, and the rest of the fixins’ for the outdoors.
But wait there’s more! The Lunar Landing Conspiracy will be hosted by our favorite extraterrestrial time travelers, The String Cheese Incident. Maybe Phil Lesh and Bob Weir will show up and help us phone home? Either way, let’s go to the Moon!
Phases of the Moon will be held from September 11-14th. Get your tickets here.
