AUSTIN PSYCH FEST - APRIL 26-28, 2024 : BUY TICKETS

LEVITATION 2023

LEVITATION returned Halloween weekend, taking over Austin, Texas music venues with an eclectic and expanded menu of music and art OCTOBER 26-29, 2023!

For over a decade, LEVITATION has delivered lineups that span psych, dream pop, 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 in Austin, Texas.

In 2023, LEVITATION expanded the sonic spectrum and scope of the event with an eclectic lineup and the addition of two of Austin's newest independent venues: electronic music destination The Concourse Project, and South Austin’s outdoor, multi-stage event center The Far Out Lounge, where Austin Psych Fest was held in April. These new locations are in addition to LEVITATION’s traditional Red River and East Side venues, including the festival’s downtown main stage Stubb’s, and Red River and Eastside staples Mohawk, Empire, Hotel Vegas, Elysium, Parish, Antone’s and 13th Floor.

Highlights include: A 20-year celebration of revered indie label Numero Group features 90s greats Unwound, Codeine, Karate and Chisel. A 15-year anniversary celebration of Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder label, featuring Fly Lo, Salami Rose Joe Louis and more. A psych-rock fever dream featuring The Brian Jonestown Massacre, fest founders The Black Angels, Dandy Warhols, and more across two stages at Far Out. Friday at Far Out brought Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Panda Bear + Sonic Boom, Allah-Las, Tanukichan and more. An epic heavy metal Halloween nightmare topped off with Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats and High On Fire celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band. A stacked punk bill with Amyl & The Sniffers, Militarie Gun and Die Spitz. Also on the menu: a West Coast psych/garage dream bill with Ty Segall & Freedom Band, Shannon & The Clams, and Ripley Johnson’s twangy trip Rose City Band. More you ask? West Coast psych sister-festival Desert Daze presented Altin Gün, Say She She, Pachyman, JJUUJJUU and more on Sunday evening. International stoner metal collective Heavy Psych Sounds presented Dead Meadow, Ecstatic Vision, 1000mods and more. LA darkwave destination Substance presented their own showcase with Twin Tribes, Nuovo Testamento, Sacred Skin and Vosh.
