The three-day festival will run from April 26 to 28.

Chicano Batman, the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and Dehd are also among the dozen-plus bands scheduled to play, according to a press release obtained by Q. J. Mascis' side project Witch is slated to perform on the event's particularly spooky second day, which will also feature All Them Witches, Frankie and the Witch Fingers and Ghostwoman. Organizers plan to announce more artists soon.

The first Austin Psych Fest happened in 2008. It was organized by members of the Black Angels, a psychedelic rock band from the city which will also play a set on Saturday. In 2015, the event was renamed Levitation in honor of the iconic Austin band The 13th Floor Elevators, which celebrated its 50th anniversary with a reunion show at the festival. Fronted by the late singer-songwriter and cult hero Roky Erickson, the band was also distinguished by its electric jug player Tommy Hall, who made a unique bubbling sound with the instrument.

Austin Psych Fest resurfaced last year as a spring version of the Levitation event, which will also return to the city on Halloween weekend in 2024.
