LEVITATION returned to downtown Austin, Texas in 2018 for year #10, taking over the Red River District with another epic lineup and sold out shows across the 4 day weekend.

Skipping the traditional festival-in-a-field model, LEVITATION was held in the city’s renowned music venues, with nearly 30 shows spread across 9 venues offering attendees the option to build their weekend experience from a menu of shows topped off by SLOWDIVE, ELECTRIC WIZARD, THE BLACK ANGELS, TY SEGALL, MINISTRY, THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE, OH SEES, PARQUET COURTS, OM, DEAN DEACON, ARIEL PINK, CHELSEA WOLFE, WAXAHATCHEE, DEAD MEADOW, BATHS, WINDHAND, WOODEN SHJIPS, LA LUZ and many, many more.

The official after-party held April 30th at Hotel Vegas was headlined by OH SEES (playing their 3rd show of the weekend), and raised over nine thousand dollars for The Austin Children’s Shelter.

“…we were promised a “once-in-a-lifetime” lineup and that is exactly what we have been given” – TINY MIX TAPES

“Levitation celebrates all things noise, goth, metal, experimental, and psychotropic.” – PITCHFORK

“We went to Austin, Texas, to experience the world’s best psych festival” – DROWNED IN SOUND

“Levitation returns to Austin, Texas, in 2018 featuring all manner of heavy psychedelia and all stops in between as part of their massive four-day talent pile-on… every show was seemingly a sold-out banger” – REVOLVER

“The lineup is adventurous and well-curated… one of the best boutique festivals in the country” – AUSTIN STATESMAN

“While known for its generous offering of psychedelic music, the event includes an array of styles, emerging as one of the most diverse festivals in operation. Performing artists range from serene folk to heavy rock to experimental electronica to world music and this year came from half a dozen or so countries across four continents.” – AUSTIN MONTHLY
