harvest festival: the flaming lips

My iPhone is my default camera these days. These were taken during The Flaming Lips‘ set at Harvest Festival on Saturday. I also took a film camera along for the day, but haven’t finished the roll yet. After not being able to see The Flaming Lips at Splendour in the Grass a few years back, they were my must-see* set on Saturday. Hands down, it was one of the best live performances I have ever been a part of. Confetti cannons, balloons, strobe lights, Wayne Coyne in a giant bubble, and sing-a-longs en masse. If you want to experience the definition of happiness, go to a Flaming Lips’ gig.
*Of course, TV on the Radio, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The National, and Portishead were pretty magnificent as well.

    I was there too, didn't see the whole set of the Flaming Lips as we left early to make sure we've made it to Portishead. It was such a great festival. I did a post on it too. Have a look if you have time. x
