Their GIAF18 gig was one of the most talked about in GIAF history. This summer, The Flaming Lips make their triumphant return to the Heineken Big Top on Saturday 18 July.
The Flaming Lips are often said to put on one of the best live shows in the world. The six-time Grammy nominated band bring dazzling colours, lights and other accoutrements (think giant zorbs and unicorns) to their perpetually crowd-pleasing sets, playing hits like "Do You Realize??" and "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1". Q Magazine has listed The Flaming Lips as one of "50 Band to See Before You Die."
The band's 15th studio album, the ‘playful, melodic, cinematic’ King’s Mouth, was released in July 2019, with their entire musical catalogue since their formation in 1983 praised for its unique, infectious pop sound.
The Flaming Lips play GIAF on Saturday 18th July 2020.
Galway International Arts Festival 2020 takes place 13-26 July 2020.
