Austin Psych Fest has long been a breeding ground for weird guitar sounds from up and comers and legends alike. This year's fest, already possessed of a fairly impressive lineup, has a few fairly major developments for us today: There will be camping for the first time at Carson Creek Ranch. And entertaining you while you do whatever it is you want because you don't have to drive anywhere is a slew of newly announced bands. Starting with The Moving Sidewalks -- a legendary Texas psych band from the '60s. This is one of only two announced shows the freshly reunited band has in the U.S. Other bands announced today include Roky Erickson, Os Mutantes, The Raveonettes and Om. The full list is below.
The Fest, now in its sixth year, will take place from April 26 to 28, at Carson Creek Ranch in Austin. Tickets are $60 for a one-day pass or $150 for the weekend -- camping passes are an additional $60.
