Take it back to the H.O.R.D.E Festival

In 1992, the H.O.R.D.E Festival began when John Popper and Dave Frey decided that they wanted to avoid the club circuit during the summer months. They called on a few bands such as Phish, Black Crowes, Widespread Panic, the Spin Doctors, and Aquarium Rescue Unit. The idea came about after the success of Perry Farrell's Lollapalooza Festival. The first H.O.R.D.E. Festival barely broke even, but most of the bands would stay along for the next few years. The last H.O.R.D.E Festival was in 1999.
