Rothbury Drama and The Phoenix of Electric Forest
After much speculation, the popular Rothbury festival was canceled in 2010 after two majorly successful years (at least in the eyes of fans). After a year hiatus, The String Cheese Incident, who reunited at Rothbury 2009, launched plans to bring a festival back to the grounds at the Double JJ Ranch. Thus, Electric Forest 2011 was born. Staff photographer Jordan August captured the event with some amazing shots.
Phish Festival 2011 - Super Ball IX
After months of speculation and rumors (because you really can't pull one over on the green board), Phish finally confirmed they would hold their ninth festival in July of 2011 on the grounds of the famed Watkins Glen International, the same venue where The Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers Band converged upon decades ago.
Re-Re:Generated - STS9's Festival Returns
After some message board leaks, STS9 announced the return of their Re:Generation festival in 2011 after a four-year hiatus. This time, they brought the party to Horning's Hideout in North Plains, OR. With Murph recovering from cancer, this event was special and we were there to cover the whole thing.
Camp Bisco Breaks Attendance Record
Exceeding everyone's expectations and prior attendance figures, Camp Bisco 2011 - one of the few Disco Biscuits performances of late - was as wild and crazy as ever.
Mayan Holidaze 2012: Part II
The festival moves venues and dates as the Mayan Apocalypse approaches. This time, the festival will take place in late December and notorious Mayan enthusiasts STS9 are slated to play on December 21 at midnight . . . if the world still exists that is.

BANDS SAY GOODBYE
LCD Soundsystem Calls It Quits
Playing one last show at Madison Square Garden, James Murphy and the gang pulled out all the stops in April of 2011.
The New Deal Is Done
After more than a decade of revolutionizing electronic music, Darren Shearer talked about ending the band's time together. They wrapped up their tenure on the East Coast in late 2011.
