This show was part of the three-show Festival 8.
The first set, which started at noon, was billed as Phish’s “first full-length acoustic set” (complete with complimentary coffee and Festival 8 themed donuts).
The first set featured Trey and Mike on acoustics, Page solely on piano, and a unique stage setup that had Fishman stage right with Page on the far left.
Before Brian and Robert, Trey encouraged the crowd to sit down due to the “mellow” nature of the set; he added that they had never before played to a crowd that was sitting.
This show marked the Phish debuts of Invisible and Sleep Again. Fishman performed a whistle solo on My Sweet One.
The band briefly left the stage after McGrupp, returning to encore with Driver, Talk, and Secret Smile.
Reba lacked the whistling ending.
Trey took a moment before Tweeprise to thank those who helped put on the festival.
