Virgin Festival

The whole Emerge family wants to apologize to all the Flaming Lips fans who went to the Virgin Festival and only got to see them for 40 minutes.

The long & short of the story is that the previous 3 days and the morning of the show we were battling terrible weather which got us behind – yes we were aware of it.  Our stage manager, with 29 years experience, worked as hard as he could to get us back on time and by 9:45pm we were in a position where the Lips were going to play 60 minutes – the crews, the band and the city were all on side.

Unfortunately, additional technical issues and the appearance of city bylaw officials ordering things to end made it impossible for the Lips to finish their set.

We’re as disappointed as anyone and were working on something to make it up to everyone.
