LINEUP AND TICKETS


Founded in 2008 as Austin Psych Fest, by members of The Black Angels and friends, the independent event sparked a movement, inspiring the creation of similar events across the globe. Austin Psych Fest was renamed LEVITATION in honor of Austin’s psychedelic rock pioneers The 13th Floor Elevators, who reunited and performed at LEVITATION 2015 for the band’s 50th anniversary.

In 2018, LEVITATION returned to its downtown Austin roots – creating a walkable, intimate and community-focused event that showcases the city’s world renowned music venues. Following up three massive weekends of sold-out shows in 2018, 2019, and 2021, LEVITATION 2022 will bring another epic 4-day weekend of music and art to Austin’s diverse Red River District and east side venues and art spaces.

Over the past decade, in addition to the flagship event in Austin, the group has curated LEVITATION events in France, Chicago and Vancouver, along with ongoing events in Austin and special events in Europe and Latin America, plus a huge, diverse annual LEVITATION showcase at SXSW. LEVITATION FRANCE celebrated its 8th year in September 2021, in Angers, FR  – the largest event of its kind in Europe, and news on the 2022 edition is coming soon. Since 2010, The Reverberation Appreciation Society record label has released records by key bands in the psych and garage rock scene like Night Beats, Holy Wave, Ringo Deathstarr and many more – with new releases on the horizon.
