The Flaming Lips Marry A Couple On Stage
The psychedelic acid rock band kicked off their set in typical fashion with trippy visual production, humorous banter, and human rainbows and clouds on stage.
And then, just as the crowd was easing in to a psychedelic journey, lead vocalist Wayne Coyne called a couple out on to the stage and announced that he would be conducting a wedding.
As the bride and groom exchanged vows the crowd came together in a powerful moment of love and community that was the central theme of the entire weekend.
All throughout the crowd festfam’s embraced in passionate hugs as positive energy blanketed the grounds at the main stage.
As Coyne said himself, that night we came together under the watchful eye of the universe to be connected as one.

really? the COMMERCIAL for the new app was one of your favorite moments? That wasn’t touching, that was STAGED! I was pissed off they interrupted the festival for a freaking commercial.
Staged or not, the fact that someone was inspired to pursue their dream through the power of music is something that we have to respect.
We all have those artists whose music speaks to us in a powerful way. Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros happened to be the catalyst for The Festival Guy.
Can’t hate on someone who is living their dream and giving back to the festival community. A great moment indeed.
Yeah, I don’t think it was an ad as much as he was just sharing what he created. It felt a little insincere but basically the rest of his speech didn’t. I know I felt what he feels because I was not an ES&MZ fan before but now I am.
The Lips married a couple before performing the most broken, energy-devoid, meandering set I’ve ever seen them play. I was devastated at their shoddy performance
