The Flaming Lips And The Yeah Yeah Yeahs For The Great Googamooga Festival

The Great GoogaMooga will be returning this year to Prospect Park in Brooklyn New York, with another heavyweight line-up of food and music assured.

Among those announced for the music section of the festival include The Flaming Lips, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Darkness, Matt & Kim and De La Soul. The Flaming Lips return next week with their new album The Terror, arguably their greatest work to date though perhaps also their bleakest, which means there’ll be some anticipation as to how they approach their set. Usually a colorful celebratory shower, which sees confetti guns go off and Wayne Coyne, their front man walk out into the crowd inside a giant balloon, these bleak new tracks won’t really fit with that aesthetic. Thankfully the boisterous punk group Yeah Yeah Yeahs will add some cheer to proceedings, as will preposterous metallers The Darkness, while you can always rely on De La Soul to get the good vibes going.

As for the food vendors, The NY Eater reports that the line-up will feature teams from over 85 restaurants, including Gwynnett St., Eataly, M. Wells, Maison Premiere, Momofuku Milk Bar, Roberta's, Rosemary's, and Umami Burger. The Nomad, PDT, and Pouring Ribbons are apparently going to serve drinks as a part of the "VIP Cocktail experience," and the beverage tents will offer over 75 beers and over 100 wines. The event takes place on the weekend of May 17th.
