    Ballsfest has planned their Saratoga event around DMB weekend for over a decade. They would not announce the date for their event without knowing when the shows are.

    Other anonymous sources in the rumors thread were also saying the July 10-11 dates for months, and they're consistent with previous DMB weekends going back to 2016.

    Hey Peeps - don't post a ton, but a frequent follower of the rumor mill (especially SPAC).

    Hotel prices have been nuts, so I had written them off and was looking into AirBnB, but the Inn at Saratoga prices just dropped extensively and that is where my crew likes to stay so just an FYI, they went down to normal but they'll be gone soon I'm sure!

    Racetrack doesn't open until July 16. Too bad. It was really cool that the stars aligned perfectly last year.

    Hey SPAC!

    Anyone coming to Stefan Lessard and Secret Stash in Stowe, VT on January 25? Got an email from the Warehouse for advance discounted tickets yesterday. Seems like a fun lineup and having any of the band members in Vermont is awesome for me; usually SPAC is our closest venue.

    (As of this morning there were probably still 100 or so seats left if anyone is interested)

    Thanks for the heads up on this detail. I just booked the Inn this morning at the rate typical for past years. Hotel is secured, let the ticket game begin.

    Was wondering about possibly camping. Coming up from Georgia for the first time. Is there camping nearby or should we just go with the AirBnB route?

    There's some great camping just north of Saratoga. There is a big group of people who camp there every year. If you are a Warehouse member, they have a thread about it on their forums.

    The Holiday Inn is pretty much the same price right now. Might be worth looking there as well. In any event, I do believe Airbnb is the best option this year. Right now I have a private apt. for two people right in town booked for 3 nights for $536 total. And Im sure there are probably cheaper ones as well.

    Haven't been in a few years (been 8 since I've logged in here) but damn am I excited. Last time I caught them at SPAC I was solo and it was pretty weird but I'm stoked regardless. Need to go this year.

    Albany is more expensive to fly into than any of the NYC airports, but then you have to get to/from NYC.

    Fly into ALB.

    Really?? I definitely missed this, only went to n2, feel like I saw you at ballsfest though.

    Howd you break your elbow? Trying to run down the hill instead of taking the stairs to the bathrooms?

    It was n2 after ballsfest, pre show. Was looking for my friend in the lawn, turned around, took a step, didnt realize there was a step there. Face planted right on the concrete.

    Didnt hurt until the next day though.

    I think Ill get a DD bracelet this year.
