Pink Floyd played a major part in the heady days of the 60s and 70s, creating thoughtful, melodic and innovative sounds and shows that captured the feelings of optimism and freedom that set out the era as something really very special.

Darkside captures that same atmosphere with a full sound, light and projection show that is true to the spirit of the time, as well as to the music.
