We’re currently taking some time off to rehearse our new 2018 touring show, but we have a fundraising gig coming up in February
24th February 2018 @ 6:30 pm – @ 10:00 pm
More than just an ordinary Pink Floyd tribute band, The Darkside of Pink Floyd entertain audiences with a fantastic light show and passionate performances.
Due to the demand for their exquisite reproduction of Pink Floyd’s classic music, The Darkside of Pink Floyd are a regular feature at major National music venues, festivals and theatres. They were also the first band to play a live public performance inside the prehistoric caves of the world famous Kents Cavern and they had a sell-out concert deep underground at Carnglaze Caverns as part of their highly acclaimed ‘Echoes of the Past’ tour.
The band are regulars at the World’s Biggest and Best Tribute Festival, having played to capacity crowds at Glastonbudget. They have also headlined at BMAD, one of the biggest Music & Motorbike Festivals in the UK. Nominated as Best Tribute Act in the South West Music Awards.
“The music took you to planet Floyd and kept you there” – Music in Leicester.
“The best tribute of all for one of the world’s greatest groups” – North Devon Journal.
“A more intense tribute band than The Darkside of Pink Floyd is hard to imagine” – The Stage.
and some lovely words from a Devon fan, “saw these guys at the BMAD festival last summer, I’d gravitated to the beer tent drawn by the opening chords of Floyd’s Speak to Me that some enlightened soul was apparently playing through the PA. Not until inside did it become apparent that this was not the CD but being played live on the stage! The band was The Darkside of Pink Floyd, and they were stunning, delivering a cultured, authentic and beautifully produced set of Floyd classics to a packed and enthusiastic audience that just kept growing throughout the performance as people young and old were drawn to the large marque stage. Highlight of a great show . . . it’s tough to pick one out, but if pressed then the emotionally crushing solo work from Comfortably Numb was the standout moment for me and a lot of others going by the audience reaction. You will have to travel a long way to see a better Floyd Tribute” – C. Corby.
The Darkside of Pink Floyd are currently playing in theatres throughout the UK and improving their Show with a few theatrical effects, more lighting, extra equipment and new songs to add to the already extensive set list. Exciting ? Absolutely . . .
Here’s an excerpt from the English Riviera Magazine – BMAD Bike & Music Festival – Crowds flock to the best BMAD festival yet! Huge crowds attended the May bank holiday weekend’s BMAD bike and music festival for the 10th anniversary year on the English Riviera’s busiest weekend of the year so far. From the moment […]
Trevor George Entertainment Review 2013 Major Live Event – by Derek Smith from: The Stage A more intense tribute band than The Darkside of Pink Floyd it is hard to imagine. Probably much better suited to a slot in the evening session, this was nevertheless an intriguing set from some fine musicians not afraid to tackle […]
True ‘soundalike’ with added self-deprecating skill From: This is North Devon SINCE when did “tribute band” mean “lookalike act”? Surely, isn’t it better to be a “soundalike”? Well it’s certainly better to hear one, especially when the band’s main concern is not how they look. The advantage for The Dark Side of Pink Floyd is […]
Caves help complement perfect Pink Floyd classics From: This is South Devon PINK Floyd tribute acts don’t come any more faithful than Darkside, and their decision to play the classic album underground in the caves was a masterstroke. It was a bold decision by the Kents Cavern management to hold their first gig in the […]
Glastonbudget Festival Review 2013 by Kevin Gaughan from: Music in Leicester Being the wrong side of middle-aged, I love my Pink Floyd, so The Darkside of Pink Floyd was a band on my ‘essential viewing’ list. The Big Top Marquee was hot, sweaty and packed. No fancy hair-dos or make up here, it was all […]

Hi everyone Quite a few people have been asking us why there are so few upcoming gigs. It’s not that we’re being lazy, in fact just the opposite . . . . There’s lots of things bubbling away under the surface, and we’re hoping to put a UK national tour in place for 2017 – […]
This review appeared in the Blackmore Vale magazine :- It wasn’t just the music being faithfully reproduced when The Darkside of Pink Floyd stopped off at Sturminster Newton Exchange on Saturday night – the excellent light show and atmospheric video stream used as a backdrop made this a completely immersing experience. The Devon-based tribute band […]
WOW, what an absolutely amazing night at Carnglaze Caverns – deep underground with the bats flying around. This is definitely one of our favourite atmospheric venues and I’m sure it’s the same for the audience as the emotion was thick in the air (along with the haze from the smoke machine of course). Lots of […]
