For over a decade now, Levitation has delivered lineups that span psych, punk, indie, metal, darkwave and electronic music – helping carry the spirit of 1960’s sonic experimentation into modern times. It’s a beloved record collection manifested into a 4 day weekend, with lineups that span continents and generations: a heady amalgamation of vintage gear, immersive light shows and visuals, buzzing amps, moody synths, leather jackets, and good times.
Levitation has revealed its initial lineup for 2022 with headliners The Jesus and Mary Chain, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard (performing two nights) event founders The Black Angels, and psych-punk warriors Osees powering through four nights of performances.
Other highlights include influential Brazilian rock legends Os Mutantes, Africa’s groundbreaking 70’s Zamrock group W.I.T.C.H, Moon Duo present their 3D audio/visual installation performance Lightship, L.A. grunge icons L7, Canadian post-rock titans Godspeed You! Black Emperor, plus Viagra Boys and Shame performing two co-headline shows together.
Additionally this year’s lineup brings performances from Cold Cave, Protomartyr, OFF!, La Femme, Sunflower Bean, Superorganism, Hunx & His Punx, Lebanon Hanover, Automatic, Warm Drag, Heartless Bastards, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, She Past Away, A Giant Dog and more.
