Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia have announced more bands to the immense line-up for this year's fest. Californian beatniks Allah-Las and Montreal celestialists The Besnard Lakes are set to make the trip across the pond and join Goat, Woods and Suuns at Camp and Furnace this September.
We can also expect the likes of the Christian Bland & The Revelators, Grumbling Fur, Quilt, Nueva Costa, September Girls, Spectres, Spindrift, The Vacant Lots and Traams.
Among these great artists it has also been confirmed that Sonic Cathedral and Heretic are joining Psych Fest in launching Psych For 2 Sore Eyes, their second instalment of pioneering psych with an exclusive festival 'happening'. As well as that, Manchester's Piccadilly Records will be bringing the store to Liverpool for a one-off Psych 'Pop Up' in the form of Piccadilly Records' World of Psychedlic Wax Wonders. This will feature racks of modern psych releases, re-issues, collectables, one-offs, cuts from our favourite labels and wax from bands on the Psych Fest bill.
There will also be the Adventures At The Outer Reaches, a symposia and cinema programme with the key global psych scene players and PZYK SKREEN PRINT WRKSHP, an exhibition of psych art, and a chance for festival goers to have a go at their own unique prints.
The Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia takes place on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 September at Camp and Furnace. For more information, head on over to the Psych Fest website.
