From the moment Phish’s Festival 8 ended on November 1 last year, there have been rumors that the band would return to the Empire Polo Club in 2010 for another event. Today, we got a definitive answer as to whether Phish and Goldenvoice would team up this fall and that answer is no.

At the end of an article about the Rolling Stones, Bruce Fessier of The Desert Sun reports that promoter Paul Tollett of Goldenvoice has confirmed that his company won’t be producing any additional events in Indio this year…
Despite statements to the contrary by Phish phans, Goldenvoice says there won’t be a Phish festival this
October at the Empire Polo Club.
Promoter Paul Tollett said he won’t produce any more festivals in Indio in 2010. Polo club owner Alex Haagen III is still talking about having a fall jazz, blues and rock ‘n’ roll festival and says he may hire another promoter. But he said, “We don’t have anything lined up yet.”
