On Dec 3 the lineup will be released, along with Camping Passes, Deluxe Upgrades, Camping Rentals, RV / Vehicle Camping information and more.

We’re very excited to unveil the best lineup yet in just two weeks!

In addition to the festival, we’ll be hosting kick-off parties on Thursday, May 7 in downtown Austin. These parties have become and annual tradition that you don’t want to miss and are worth getting in town early for.


Since founding Austin Psych Fest in 2008, we’ve brought our favorite bands from around the world to Austin, TX, gathering a global community for our annual event. It’s a dream come true.

Austin Psych Fest has become a way to honor and preserve Austin’s psychedelic rock heritage, and carry it into the future. Over the years, countless other “psych fest” events have popped up around the globe – music communities all over the world are gathering together and celebrating music and art together, under the banner of psychedelic rock. This is an amazing thing and we are proud to be a part of it.

In 2015 we are redefining what we’re doing with a renewed focus on the music we love, and to mark that change the festival is taking on a new name: LEVITATION. The title comes from one of our favorite tracks from Austin legends The 13th Floor Elevators, who have provided us with endless inspiration. Their music transcended genre – they were true innovators.

We will continue to invite innovative and captivating artists to perform at the festival, and gather a global community to experience great music performed live in all its glory at LEVITATION, in Austin, TX each year.

We look forward to seeing everyone in May!


To produce LEVITATION we are partnering up with our friends at Transmission Events, the masterminds behind Fun Fun Fun Fest, and over 700 shows each year in Austin venues like ACL Live, Mohawk, Red 7 and many more. TE have been big supporters of Austin Psych Fest over the years and we have an incredible amount of respect and admiration for what they do.

TE brings the resources and experience we need to manifest our goals for the festival, improving every aspect and bringing our full vision to life.

We are very excited to work with TE towards these goals and presenting you with the best festival experience yet!
