The possibility of Field Day Fest happening in Riverhead, NY, is becoming even less likely, with the Riverhead town board tabling a the resolution to have Field Fest there. Dude, it's clear to Gothamist that all the town board members' children were harrassing them not to deny Field Day Fest, but really, there was no way the town board was going to have that kind of chaos on their records, especially with the Suffolk County police not being able to help out with handling crowds. It looks like Giants Stadium will be the new venue, but more information is scheduled to come from Field Day Fest organizers.
Thinking about police concerns with handling crowds, Gothamist knows that Radiohead fans might be crazy, but we'd like to see the Elliott Smith fans really cut loose. Which seems like it might involve a lot of vodka and sitting quietly in a drunken stupor. Previous Gothamist coverage of Field Day Fest logistical issues.
