The lineup for LEVITATION’s 8th annual official SXSW showcase and day party has been released!
Once again over 50 artists from across the world, and spanning the spectrum of underground rock and roll and psychedelic music, converge on Thursday, March 14 at Hotel Vegas in Austin, Texas.
Fittingly, the event is presented by Detroit’s legendary rock ‘n’ roll rag, CREEM Magazine, a champion of the original underground youth counterculture movement and punk scene. Five decades after publishing its first issue in 1969, CREEM is kicking off its 50th Anniversary at SXSW with the world premiere of the documentary Boy Howdy! The Story of CREEM Magazine and teaming up with LEVITATION – known worldwide as ground-zero for the modern scene – to present the best damn party at SXSW 2019 together:

ABOUT CREEM MAGAZINE
Founded in 1969, CREEM Magazine rose from the ashes of the Detroit riots and ushered in a new era of raucous participatory rock journalism. For nearly 20 years, the magazine served as the infamous, irreverent, wild-child alternative to publications like Rolling Stone, and the go-to source for authentic, fan-focused music journalism from legendary writers like Lester Bangs, Dave Marsh, and Patti Smith, that made CREEM ‘America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine.’
From the coining of phrases like ‘punk rock,’ to the early championing of bands like The Clash, Blondie, Elvis Costello, and Alice Cooper, the legacy of CREEM is one that runs deep with music fans and musicians alike. Now celebrating its 50th anniversary, CREEM and its iconic R. Crumb-drawn Boy Howdy! logo continue to serve as a renegade, uncompromising emblem of the rock ‘n’ roll spirit.
“Creem Magazine is as important to whatever aesthetic punk had as anything.”
-Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth)
