A Preview Of This Year's LOCKN' Collabs

Published: February 18, 2019

Last week, LOCKN' announced the line-up for this year's festival, but unlike other lineup announcements, you always have to look twice at LOCKN' to know what's really going on. Some epic collaborations take place every year--who could forget the infamous Bobby and the Avetts in 2017 that included the treasured deep cut "Mission in the Rain." Hopefully more magic like that happens this August 22nd-25th at Infinity Downs Farm in Arrington, VA. This year will feature a flip flop of musical delights including the Trey Anastasio Band featuring Derek Trucks, Tedeschi Trucks Band featuring Trey Anastasio, and Bob Weir and Wolf Bros featuring...

Curveball Refunds

Published: August 18, 2018

We are as crushed about the cancellation of Curveball, as I am sure you are. Whether you were buying, selling, or trading on CashorTrade for this event, the news came as a shock to us all. As I am sure many of you are concerned about obtaining refunds for the tickets you either purchased or traded, we would ask that you hang tight. The best outcome will result in us being patient to see how Phish processes the refunds. Most likely they will credit the card on file of the original purchaser. At that time, we would ask that all sellers refund their buyers in an effort to keep their accounts in good standing and to continue with the mission of...

In Response to The Events at The Gorge: A Letter From CashorTrade

Published: July 26, 2018

Last weekend, we heard about the acts of violence committed against fans of color attending the Phish show at Gorge Amphitheater. We were saddened by this news, as Phish has always been a safe haven for fans to share in the groove. Violence against any fan is unacceptable, and violence in the name of bigotry is abhorrent and has no place in our community. CashorTrade condemns both equally and fervently. We were founded on the idea of inclusivity. We uphold the belief that all fans-- regardless of race, religion, sexual preference, gender identity, or socioeconomic background-- are welcomed within the community. We vow to act as an ally to...
