Live Balloon Flight Concert for Peace

An enterprising group of balloonists, artists, and musicians staged a live concert from a giant tie-dyed hot air balloon at the recent Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Led by artist and pilot Jonathan Wolfe, musicians Seth & Todd played a live rock concert from the balloon which used giant speakers on the chase vehicles to broadcast the music.

Here's a photo of them taking off with Seth & Jacob playing the wireless rock show from the sky, while proudly flying the peace-flower banner for the huge Fiesta crowd below.

For additional photos, or to learn more about tie-dying on a dramatic scale, see the SkyDyes website. Also, see additional pictures of hot air balloons of all types and the official Albuquerque website. There were a total of 3 full-sized tied-dyed hot air balloons flying as part of the balloon fiesta. Approximately 700 balloons launched as part of the event.
