Explore the story of the group Pink Floyd in an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Described as psychedelic, sonic, and brilliant, the rock band Pink Floyd entered the British music scene in the 1960s and brought with them daring attitudes, fresh perspectives, and music indicative of the 1960s. The group pushed against traditional conceptions of performance and tested the boundaries of sound, style, and theatrics. In the summer of 1969, Pink Floyd played at the Royal Albert Hall and became banned from ever entering again because they threw a giant pink smoke bomb that was deemed too risque for the venue--the ban was later retracted. In true Pink Floyd fashion, the exhibit plays with auditory, visual, and other sensory modes of expression. Many of the items featured in the exhibition are on loan from the band members themselves, and offer insight into group members' private lives.
