AUSTIN PSYCH FEST returned, April 28-30, 2023, celebrating its 15th anniversary, and returning to its original single location format and Spring timeframe with an intimate setting and two stage lineup at South Austin’s The Far Out Lounge – an outdoor venue with a 100 year history. Austin Psych Fest brings the old school vibe of the original event back outdoors and under the stars and oak trees in the venue's sprawling backyard.
The trees, stage and venue were be drenched and dripping in the liquid light of Mad Alchemy Light Show, and a host of Austin visual artists and collaborators. The lineup offers up an international slate of psych rock, dream pop and indie rock, with a nod to the 1960s golden era and an eye toward the future.
Austin Psych Fest began in 2008, as a DIY event produced by The Black Angels and friends, and quickly expanded over the years into an international destination for the underground music scene. The event was renamed LEVITATION, in a nod to the Austin’s psychedelic rock godfathers The 13th Floor Elevators, who reunited to play the event in 2015.
a thriving center for the independent music scene locally and internationally, in the home of psychedelic rock: Austin, Texas. The event’s co-founder and booker Rob Fitzpatrick explains, “We’ve always been a little bit of the weird underground party, for the seekers, even as it’s gotten bigger each year. This Spring we’re throwing it back to where it all started, with the first Austin Psych Fest back in 2008. The 15th anniversary is a great excuse to book a stacked lineup and killer party to celebrate. We’re also excited to bring it back with our friends at Resound. The team there has been behind a crazy amount of our favorite Austin music moments - very stoked for what we have coming up.”
