2017’s festival season is just about over and already we’re starting to get some early indicators of how amazing 2018 is going to look. Levitation constantly supplies some of the best shows and fests in psych, shoegaze and garage rock, and their 2018 lineup announcement keeps the best coming strong.
Akin to Desert Daze, but in Austin, the familiar and thrilling lineup is sure to please fans as iconic current acts like The Black Angels, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Chelsea Wolfe and Slowdive will grace the stage. Since this is merely “Phase One” of the lineup, expect even more exciting adds to come.
Founded in 2008 by members of The Black Angels and friends, the event has celebrated almost 10 years of solid bookings, amazing visuals, and great times. 2016 marked an unfortunate cancellation of the festival and 2017 was spent preparing for the next year, so a very excited return to form in 2018 is reason to celebrate and get tickets. You can get your tickets right here right now.
An interesting aspect of the festival is that it’s broken down into individual shows that are available now. This is similar to how SXSW is organized as one event, but with multiple showcases and bands playing at venues in the downtown Austin area. You can buy a deluxe pass or individual tickets to shows, so your experience is very customizable.
The 2018 weekend will be hosted in downtown Austin venues including Stubb’s Austin, Mohawk Austin, Barracuda Austin, Empire Control Room & Garage, Cheer Up Charlies and more. For the schedule of shows and more info visit: levitation-austin.com
