Time to reflect on Levitation 2015. I liked the name change away from Austin Psych Fest when it was announced as there are several bands that that may meander towards that genre, fans of the genre may love, but just aren’t “Psych” bands. I hope they continue to expand the diversity of the lineup. With that, let’s talk about this year and then you can gander a whole mess of photos taken at the fest.
We’re just about there. A few more short days and Levitation 2015 will be upon us. ATH is excited for the weekend and we’re also excited to bring you another interview today from Holydrug Couple. Follow the jump for interview.
Late last week, Austin Psych Fest announced the schedule for this year’s Levitation Festival. I love it. Even if you have a conflict, you will have an opportunity to meander in the fringes and bolster you festival band count. If you don’t want to meander, you’ll have nice breaks between bands to allow for extra-curricular activities like, ya know, eating and drinking and not dehydrating and shrivelling. It is not a sprint, it is a marathon.
Can’t wait to be miserably tired when The FLaming Lips take the stage on Sunday at 11:45pm…
We’re pretty impressed. The artist formerly known as Austin Psych Fest killed it. Jesus and Mary Chain playing Psychocandy? The Flaming Lips? Tame Impala? …and plenty of returning favorites. Damn. Click on the image or watch the video, people.
First, the fest will hence forth be referred to as Levitation. I’m cool with it, better branding than Austin Psych Fest and it will keep people from pitching a fit when a band that isn’t “Psych” is announced on the lineup. Second, the aforementioned lineup is coming 12/3. Third, the dates that lineup will be playing out at Carson Creek Ranch again will be May 8-10. Fourth, Transmission is now engaged in the festival’s goings-on. Finally, there are a few early-bird passes for sale, y’all.
