Playlist: Levitation Festival

Festival season is officially underway! I’m always a little sad when SXSW ends, because it’s my personal favorite, but it helps that there are so many amazing festivals to look forward to. While the next big one (Coachella) is only a couple of weeks away, I’ve got my sights set on Austin’s next festival: Levitation. Formerly known as Austin Psych Fest, this is a festival I have never attended and can’t wait to finally experience. The festival is put on annually by The Reverberation Appreciation Society, the same people behind the record label of the same name and RVRB Records. Every year they put together an incredible roster of the music industry’s best psych rock, and this year’s lineup is pretty unreal. The headliners are Texas psych rock pioneers the 13th Floor Elevators, who are reuniting for the first time in 45 years, 50 years after they first formed in 1965. The festival takes place May 8-10th at Carson Creek Ranch just outside Austin, and also welcomes some amazing local vendors and vintage retailers. Listen to the playlist of bands on the lineup, and if you’ll be there let me know!

Love your playlist! I saw the Flaming Lips in my hometown about 5 years ago – I’d definitely do it again! It was an amazing show.

Warm Regards,

Psych Fest is amazing. We camped out last year and it was a great experience. Saving money so decided to just go on Sunday this year. Super excited. I guarantee it’ll be nothing like any other festival you’ve been to. It’s very unique. You’ll love it.
