In a statement, Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne declared, "Being with Jim James is like
hanging with an outlaw who just broke out of jail, but this outlaw is also Jesus Christ at
the last supper...and there is music everywhere being made by magic birds that leave
diamonds in your drinks." MMJ replied with, "We're elated to join forces with all these
bands and musicians - we shall embrace hands and lift voices - singing praises to the
heaves and to the earth and all that abide and reside in between and it shall be so sweet.
Hands in the air, feet on the earth - or the other way around - resting sweet, perched in
the arms of our beautiful new mother Mexico. One Big Holiday."
One Big Holiday packages are available
through the event's website and include meals, drinks, the music and lodging.
