Flooding last weekend caused a state of emergency that left Curveball organizers to make the difficult decision to cancel the music festival in Watkins Glen. The cancellation was a disappointment to music fans who were en route to the festival, but the aftermath of last week’s storm has had an ongoing impact on lives and businesses throughout the region.
Details were revealed on Phish.com about refunds for ticket holders, and also the plan to open an online store for Curveball merchandise, with proceeds going to flood relief and recovery efforts.
Those who purchased official tickets will receive a full refund of ticket prices, service fees and shipping automatically to the credit card used for the purchase. It will be a laborious process, and the festival organizers are asking for patience during this process. Those who purchased from a secondary market will need to contact the resale agent.
Ticket holders will still be able to redeem the code on their wristbands to view the Dick’s Webcast of all three shows in Colorado over Labor Day Weekend via livephish.com/redeem.
Curveball merchandise including T-shirts, posters, and Nalgene water bottles will be available for purchase online. All profits will go to flood relief and recovery. Curveball ticket holders will be given early access to the online store once it is up and running.
