Princeton University is proud to host an interdisciplinary conference
celebrating the music, art, and culture of Pink Floyd, one of the most successful bands of all times. The first-ever academic event to focus entirely on the band, this conference will feature Pink Floyd producer/engineer James Guthrie alongside scholars and performers from different disciplines. In addition to lectures and discussions, the conference will include live acoustic arrangements of Pink Floyd music by Princeton composers.
