Music nerds probably do form the majority of their fanbase though. The hippy types are unsurprisingly mostly older. Most of the actually bothersome people at Phish shows are the ravers who just show up to do molly and get wasted (though they add to the party vibe which can be fun). There's also a roving gang of dudes selling nitrous who everyone hates cus they're just there to extort people with their shitty product. But neither of *those* groups do I see get much focus when people talk about Phish fans.
