Vermont state officials are gearing up for a two-day concert festival featuring the band Phish. The concert is set for August 14-15 at the Newport State Airport in Coventry.
State police are continuing to work on security plans, while road crews have been working on improvements to roads at the concert site. State police have said traffic flow will be a major concern as a crowd estimated at 70,000 tries to move in and out of the area.
Police are also preparing for criminal activity. At two Phish concerts in Saratoga, New York, this past weekend, there were dozens of arrests for drugs, assaults and robberies.
