The new incarnation of Psych Fest announced its lineup on Wednesday, reassuring fans that the three-day musical kaleidoscope will remain heavy with psychedelic vibes.
LEVITATION, as its now known, nabbed The Flaming Lips for the headliner, as well as Tame Impala, Spiritualized, Primal Scream, Mac Demarco, Thee Oh Sees and Austin faves The Black Angels. As a special treat, The Jesus and Mary Chain will be present to perform their entire Psychocandy album in honor of its 30th anniversary.
Last month, it was announced that Psych Fest will henceforth be known as LEVITATION, based off of a track from local psychedelic pioneers 13th Floor Elevators. The festival also revealed that it is pairing up with Transmission Events, the same production and marketing company behind Fun Fun Fun Fest. Despite all the shake ups, the lineup assuages any fears that the new moniker will mean a change in sounds.
