Originally opened in 1892 and modeled after the Prague Opera house, Chicago’s astounding Thalia Hall was re-founded in 2014 thanks to the team behind Chicago’s Empty Bottle and Evanston’s SPACE. The near 1,000 capacity room is quickly becoming a beacon of music and arts in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, having hosted acts from Ty Segall, Panda Bear, and Isabella Rossellini to Sleep, Andy Stott, Glass Animals and more.
Levitation, the festival previously known as Austin Psych Fest, was founded in 2008 by The Reverberation Appreciation Society and established itself as one of the premiere boutique festivals in the US, drawing attendees from all over the world for programming that spans a range of styles and genres as expansive and hard to pin down as the word “psychedelic” itself. Recent years have seen the festival founders taking their creative direction to events in Vancouver, France, The Netherlands, Mexico, Brooklyn and more.
