H.O.R.D.E. To Be Brought Back This Fall

Last summer marked the 20th anniversary of the first H.O.R.D.E. festival in which Phish, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Widespread Panic, The Spin Doctors and Blues Traveler teamed up to play a bunch of East Coast sheds and arenas. While the occasion passed without the return of the fest, Blues Traveler front man John Popper has been saying a re-worked H.O.R.D.E. is in the works.

Today, an article on Radio.com (as found by Jambands.com) has news about the return of H.O.R.D.E. Apparently Robert Randolph is bringing the event back along with Blues Traveler, Trombone Shorty, John Fogerty and Gary Clark Jr. this fall for 6-7 dates. Randolph goes on to tell Radio.com that a larger version of the traveling festival will take place “in the summer or spring of 2014.”

We were hoping the original bands would all take part in the return of H.O.R.D.E., but we understand that was far fetched. We look forward to seeing what shape H.O.R.D.E. takes later this year.

    …i believe it was Bela Fleck + Tones on four of the original 8 dates (replacing ARU in the south)

    Popper was on fire that summer, the Empire Court show in Syracuse was enormous…and then came the rain

    I still have my shirt from the first HORDE…. Col. Bruce & ARU, Widespread Panic, Spin Doctors, Phish, and Blues Traveler (in that order for 3 of the 4 Northeast dates). I went to Empire Court in Syracuse and the Garden State Arts Center in NJ on back-to-back days. The Empire Court venue was MUCH smaller.
