Giving South by Southwest a run for its money, Austin's ninth annual Levitation (formerly Austin Psych Fest), to be held April 29-May 1 at Carson Creek Ranch, today released its final lineup, which looks pretty impressive. Not only will Brian Wilson, reclusive Beach Boy and subject of the recent film Love and Mercy, be on hand to perform his masterpiece Pet Sounds in its entirety, other psych-heavy, experimental, and seasoned legacy acts like Lee "Scratch" Perry, Thurston Moore Band, and Lee Ranaldo will share the bill with the likes of Caribou, Animal Collective, Shabazz Palaces, and a ton of others.
Check out the full lineup below. Weekend passes are available now for $165, with single day tickets soon available, over at the fest's website. The price for weekend passes will increase in 2016. Few bands could make this lineup any better (though Deerhoof and the back-on-the-road Murder City Devils come to mind), so, in addition to Mr. Wilson, the following bands are set to appear:
Animal Collective, Slowdive, Caribou, Flying Lotus, Sleep, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Ty Segall, Nicolas Jaar, The Black Angels, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Sunn 0))), Super Furry Animals, Royal Trux, Boris, Thurston Moore Band, Oneohtrix Point Never, Black Mountain, Lee Ranaldo, Dungen, Shabazz Palaces, Parquet Courts, Woods, Twin Peaks, La Luz, Allah-Las, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard, Fantasmes, Boogarins, Heron Oblivion, Imarhan, Purson, Quraishi, Mild High Club, Israel Nash, Chicano Batman, Ultimate Painting, Asteroid #4, Bayonne, La Mecanica Popular, Blondi's Salvation, The Murlocs, Flavor Crystals, Promised Land Sound, JJUUJJUU, and Cellar Doors.
