Enormous: The Gorge Story

Some of you may have seen this making its rounds, some of you may have not. For the snorlax's among us, there's a filmmaker working on a project about the Gorge. Yeah, THE Gorge. He's been in contact with the president of LiveNation (when he reads this, I hope he PM's me. I've got some Q's to shoot The Pres's way), and a few other dudes and it sounds pretty compelling so far. A documentary about the history and formation of one of the most iconic and famous amphitheaters, and for my money, the most beautiful place to see a concert on earth.

Here's a link to the site, where you can sign up to get news about the film. And here's some more information going in detail about the process so far.

Stay tuned, I'm pretty excited to see what this guy churns out.


I just hope the credits aren't set to SMLAM.

    I remember seeing something like this over a year ago, possibly several years ago. Am I thinking of the same project?

    Thanks for posting! Well said. I'm too new to start the thread myself, but I'm producing the film. We are about halfway done filming it - this upcoming concert season will complete all the photography and interviews for it. I can tell you that Dave himself opens the pre-release trailer that is coming out in a couple of weeks and we'll be posting that on the Facebook & Website as soon as it's finalized. Here to answer any questions you guys might have.

    We began filming at Sasquatch '14, so probably isn't the same project. As far as I know, this is the only film sanctioned by Live Nation and that has interviewed the principal founders of The Gorge.

    Doesn't look like it, their FB page isn't that old. Couldn't find a date on their website, but I don't think it is.

    Isn't there a whole bunch of renovations planned for the Gorge?

    There is definitely talk of it, but I don't know of anything that has officially been released by Live Nation.

    This is really cool, tdub. I couldn't agree more about this place being something magical in terms of enjoying the music you love, with people who are generally on the same wavelength and went through some effort to be there.

    Does the scope of your story include the perspective of fans as well as the artists and founders? To me, a big part of what makes the Gorge special is the "mecca" nature of it from the standpoint of fans.

    This would be a pretty good time to reissue an expanded DMB: Live at the Gorge on Blu-ray (or film this year's shows in their entirety for a deluxe Blu-ray boxset).

    Haha, good one. This is the Dave Matthews Band we're talking about.

    Sad that I/many instantly have no hope of something awesome like this happening.

    Well to the whole 2002 run to be on Bluray, won't happen cause pre-HD and I think wouldn't look great up-converted. Also one erason the whole weekend wasn't released was because the wind made it very difficult and they had some rough recordings. Fenton said that in an interview.

    Be careful! I moved to Oregon after my first Gorge...

    And, to the docu, amazing trailer! Crazy to see how low the water was last year because of the dam being fixed. Should be back to normal this year. Can't wait to swim again off Vantage Rd!!

    Thought about this last week after seeing some other kickstarter project pop up on my feed, so I googled it. They make occasional facebook posts, but nothing about the doc, every post has a "when is this going to be released" comment, which is always ignored

    That's kind of what I figured which sucks... I'm hoping it gets released before I make my first trip next September. The trailer looks great

    what a joke. This was supposed to be released a while ago. Completely forgot about it.

    Saw some drones flying over the venue the last two years and wondered if maybe it was them.

    I thought they had already conducted interviews with various bands, assuming this must be a financial hold up?

    They messaged back on Facebook, not too much to offer. See below:


    TUE 2:15PM

    We're still working on it. We will know more soon.
    Thanks for checking in.


    Thanks for the quick response!
    Do you expect it to be out in 2018?

    TUE 4:04PM

    Yes, expecting it to be! Will keep you posted

    TUE 5:07PM

    Great!
