On the Easy Star All-Stars' Dub Side of the Moon album, there are two different dub music versions of the track, “The Great Gig in the Sky” (Track 4) and “Great Dub in the Sky” (Track 11). The London Philharmonic Orchestra performs an instrumental version, arranged by Jaz Coleman and conducted by Peter Scholes, on the 1995 album Us and Them: Symphonic Pink Floyd. Phish does a live cover on track 6 of disc 3 of Live Phish Vol. 7. Seattle local band The Squirrels did a full-length parody “tribute” of The Dark Side of the Moon in 1999 entitled The Not-So-Bright Side of the Moon. Their version of “Great Gig” has vocalist Baby Cheevers singing after guitarist Joey Kline says “Sorry, the girl didn't show up!” On the 2009 Flaming Lips remake of Dark Side, Peaches performs Clare Torry's vocals and Henry Rollins recreates the interview samples. The progressive metal band Dream Theater performs this song in their “Official Bootlegs: Covers” series, with Theresa Thomason taking over vocal duties. The Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corps, from Canton, Ohio, played an arrangement of the song with multiple trumpets performing the vocal part for their Drum Corps International world championship winning 2016 show “Down Side Up.” The Australian Pink Floyd Show performed the song with Ola Bieńkowska doing a near-exact replica of the vocal.
