Galway International Arts Festival & Róisín Dubh present

The Flaming Lips | July 2021

*Please Note* This event has been rescheduled to Saturday 17 July 2021. Original tickets purchased for 2020 date remain valid.

Their GIAF18 gig was one of the most talked about in GIAF history. In July 2021 Flaming Lips make their triumphant return to the Heineken Big Top.

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 Festival will take place 12-25 July 2021.
