King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard pack out the Big Top at End of the Road Festival

04 September 2016, 20:32 | Written by Merle Jobst

The End of the Road Festival began to reach the end of the road this evening. However, energy levels were still high as a crowd fresh from Broken Social Scene spilled into the Big Top to watch King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard, one of the most anticipated names on the lineup.

The seven-piece Australian psych-rock band brought their roaring live sound, bursting with affected voices and guitar melodies, rapid rhythmic changes, leisurely song lengths, and thematic repetition, to the tent, which was drenched in red light and perhaps more packed than it had been all weekend.

The fierce sound and frantic lighting kept the crowd present, engaged and moving, with a mass sit-down-stand-up build-up taking place unprompted, and crowdsurfers bobbing up and down throughout the second half of the set.

End of the Road continues tonight, with headline sets from The Oh Sees and Joanna Newsom.
