2018 marks year #10 in Austin, Texas and we are so thankful to be back – and honored to host this amazing community and our favorite artists from around the world.
We almost didn’t make it to 2018. After a devastating cancellation in 2016, we weren’t sure if LEVITATION would continue. After a year of regrouping and rethinking the festival, we announced our lineup for 2018 – and waited to see how it would go. The response was huge with sold out shows across the weekend, and we’ve been blown away by the support and appreciation for this event. Our goal is to create a stable and thriving platform for music and art, and 2018 has been a huge step towards that goal. THANK YOU!
Thanks to all of our venue partners, presenting partners, sponsors and everyone who made it possible. Thanks to the Austin music community and everyone at Margin Walker, Stubb’s, Emo’s, C3, Mohawk, Barracuda, Empire, Cheer Up Charlies, Beerland and Hotel Vegas. Thank you to The Mustachio Light Show, along with the entire visuals and projections team. Thank you to every musician and artist who contributed their time and talents to LEVITATION, every volunteer, everyone who went the extra mile – the list is far too long to thank everyone here, but you know who you are. THANK YOU. Special thanks to our friend and partner Johnny Sarkis – 2018 would have never happened without him.
Most of all thank you to everyone who traveled from near and far to make LEVITATION 2018 such a great weekend!
This was our first year in our new format in downtown Austin, and we look forward to working with everyone again in 2019 as LEVITATION continues to grow and evolve – and we look forward to many more great weekends in Austin, Texas!
