One of the most influential bands of the last thirty years, Pixies, whose mix of punk aggression and pop melodies helped establish the sound that would become the calling card of alternative rock in the 1990s, will play the Heineken Big Top on 14 and 15 July 2022.

Formed in 1986, they released a mini-album in 1987 called Come On Pilgrim, followed up by their first full-length album Surfer Rosa which featured songs such as “Where is my Mind” and “Gigantic” in 1988. Surfer Rosa was well-reviewed and became a college hit in the US and UK, catapulting Pixies to fame.
