Very excited for this, although it looks like I'll be going by myself. Anyone need a concert buddy? (I'm a girl, if that helps.)

I wasn't planning on going to this, but after this past weekend in AC, I'm curious as to what they'll come up with by August. I'm leaning toward going.

Trouble for NYC DMB Festival
By Waldo Jaquith
Apr.20.2004

Dave Matthews Band's plan to hold an Independence Day weekend music festival in New York City has been 86d, according to the New York Post. The band was looking to hold the event on Governor's Island, half a mile from lower Manhattan, but officials decided that the location simply wasn't practical. This need not mean that the festival isn't going to happen, nor that it isn't going to happen near New York City, but if a backup location hasn't been under consideration, it will be difficult to move it at this late date. 04/20 Update: DMB management tells us that, one way or another, the show will go on.

Same exact situation here. I'm getting too old for 3-day festivals and I'm sure Sunday will be the highlight of the weekend anyway.

Yeah exactly.. haven't seen the Flecktones in years so I'm looking forward to seeing them again. Plus I don't have to worry about finding a place to stay in the city.. I'm a little over an hour outside the city so it's not a bad drive home

Ok, I'm definitely going now. Not changing my mind anymore. Just hope it's not 1000 degrees.

Anyone want to chill with me and Jason? Or grab a drink in the city before or after each day?

woohoo! See, that's a good decision.

Is it my imagination or can you only get tickets for this stop through will call?

raven
08-18-2011, 08:38 AM
Oh I thought it was just because I ordered late.. just bought tickets for Sunday and they were will called. That's gonna be a pain if 30,000 people are waiting at will call

Are there pretty good deals on tickets yet? I hadn't planned on going, but now I'm really thinking about going to possibly Sunday night. I knew this was going to happen and I would consider it :lol

You should be able to get a 3 day pass for $150 or less soon.

Does anyone know if VIP gets you preferred ferry access? I've seen it mentioned but can't find it officially anywhere. Thanks.

At each departure location, VIPs will have a separate queue to enter for priority boarding. This will greatly expedite your departure process. Keep an eye out for VIP signage. **If your VIP Packages are set for WILL CALL please bring a copy of your receipt/confirmation to receive priority boarding for all ferries. You will need to show a valid photo ID and the confirmation upon arriving at the box office.

So you can take a ferry from either Manhattan or Jersey City. Any thoughts on which will be easier to get on/off the island?

Craigslist or any of the boards really. I ended up having to sell my AC 3 day pass for $100.

They're at that range now on Ants and WH. Last night my buddy got one for $150 including overnight to him.
