Austin Psych Fest 2013


Austin Psych Fest announced its preliminary lineup for 2013 the other day and it is simply amazing. Headliners include Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Deerhunter, Warpaint, Clinic and the Black Angels plus we also get a ton of our favorite up and comers like DIIV, The Soft Moon and White Fence.

Austin Psych Fest will take place April 26 through 28 at Carson Creek Ranch in Austin, TX.  More acts will be announced in January but you can purchase your tickets now. [Tickets]

Austin Psych Fest Week!

As most should know by now Austin Psych Fest will be kicking off this weekend. This year is the festivals most ambitious outing yet with it now taking place at the Seaholm Power Plant and boasting one of the best line ups (of any festival) we have seen all year. Also, if having this group of musicians play an old power plant isn't fitting, I don't know what is. To get you more familiar with some of our favorite artists on the bill we will be spotlighting them throughout the week. Till then we have the full line up with set times and TICKET info to get you started.
