Big thanks to all of the bands that played the festival – your music, your art, and people’s love for it – is why this festival exists. Huge thanks to all the fans – you are all amazing, we appreciate your support and the community that you’ve created, can’t wait to see your smiling faces again soon. We know that there were a few kinks this year (see below), and we’ll make sure we don’t run into the same issues again next year. Here’s some things that you can do to keep the psych train rolling:

Each and every act was hand picked by The Reverberation Appreciation Society and they all have music for sale and download, not to mention limited edition, and in many cases hand crafted merchandise. Support the art and musical output of these good people and BUY the music.

Visit our sponsors – all of these folks support music and arts in a big way, and gave of their time and resources to help make Austin Psych Fest happen this year. Tell ’em we sent you!

Red Bull, El Cosmico, Groveshark, The Shed BBQ, Austin Chronicle, Ilios Lighting, DO512, Austinist, Fender, Buddha’s Brew, Bird’s Barber Shop, Hoboken Pies and Tigress Management.
