In 2002, Phish launched LivePhish, offering high-quality soundboard recordings of every show and 4K live webcasts. LivePhish+, the band’s streaming service, stands as the most successful artist-driven service of its kind.

Phish’s commitment to charitable activities led to the establishment of The WaterWheel Foundation in 1997. This foundation channels the generosity of Phish’s fan community to support various charitable causes.

Beyond musical acts, Sphere has curated a diverse lineup, featuring the works of Turkish-American artist Refik Anadol and director Darren Aronofsky.

The venue’s versatility and ability to showcase a spectrum of performances contribute to its growing reputation.

Apart from the Sphere residency, Phish has a dynamic schedule for 2024, including hosting its first curated festival in nearly a decade.

The festival, set for August 15-18, 2024, at The Woodlands in Dover, DE, adds another dimension to Phish’s extensive musical journey.

Phish’s exclusive shows at Sphere mark a significant chapter in the band’s storied career. The fusion of Phish’s musical brilliance with Sphere’s technological marvel promises an unparalleled audio-visual spectacle.

As fans eagerly await this once-in-a-lifetime experience, the residency serves as a testament to Phish’s continuous innovation and commitment to delivering extraordinary performances.
