The conference will feature more than 50 scholars, representing diverse disciplinary approaches, pushing the boundaries of Phish research. This year’s program will include presentations on health, philosophy, law, activism, business, statistics, spirituality, and much more. There’s something for everyone!

The conference will feature an art exhibit, pop-up museum, exhibition fair, and three nights of live music. “On the Wind and Underwater” examines the concept of waves through the perspectives of six artists selected through a competitive process. “Our Intent Is All For Your Delight” is an extensive exploration of the Phish festival experience curated by Alex Grosby, the Phishsonian. The exhibition fair, sponsored by PhanArt, will showcase businesses and artists from the Phish community. (Conference organizers are still accepting applications for vendors.)
