“Seen the original Pink Floyd twice….never thought I’d ever say this, but Brit Floyd is every bit as good as Pink Floyd. Both visually and musically. Without question a must see for any Pink Floyd fan.”
“The sound was perfect as well as their song selection. They played a little bit of everything and the concert was almost three hours long. But the most outstanding thing was their musicianship, everyone in the band was incredible…”
“They strike an excellent balance between very faithful recreation of the songs, over-dubbing of sounds from the original recordings (such as dogs barking from Animals), and their own influences on the arrangements. They didn’t over play the songs yet they played with great intensity.”
Pink Floyd tribute band Brit Floyd describe their concerts as “the world’s greatest Pink Floyd show,” and their fans don’t disagree. Combining state-of-the-art psychedelic visuals and a painstakingly crafted reproduction of Pink Floyd’s iconic sound, the band’s concerts stay remarkably true to their subject matter — close your eyes and you won’t even know the difference. At their 2013 concerts, the band impressed even the staunchest Pink Floyd loyalists with their creative yet faithful interpretations of the band’s classic hits, generating buzz for their massive Discovery World Tour 2014.

Brit Floyd formed in the wake of The Australian Pink Floyd Show, which began in 1988 and was the first Pink Floyd tribute act to achieve international recognition. Following the departure of the group’s founding Australian members, the band renamed itself Brit Floyd, a nod to the increasingly British lineup under musical director Damian Darlington. Since 2007, the band has incorporated an ambitious psychedelic laser light show closely modeled after the visuals used by Pink Floyd during their world tours. The visual recreation, along with the band’s meticulous reproduction of every last nuance of Pink Floyd’s live sound, makes for a concert experience that will satisfy both new fans and Pink Floyd purists alike.
