The first wave of lineup announcements for Levitation Austin 2018 has been released, and (as usual) it’s great.
The festival is no longer being held at the Carson Creek Ranch, but rather at multiple venues in downtown Austin like Stubb’s BBQ, Empire, Barracuda, and more. You can buy tickets for the individual shows, which vary in price. They offered full weekend passes for all shows for $400.00 (quite a price jump from previous years), but they sold out in minutes. Screw you, ticket buying robots!
Regardless, the first lineup already has many great artists on it. Rishi Dhir of Elephant Stone will be performing solo and with a new venture he has called Mien. Dead Meadow, Thee Oh Sees, Slowdive, the Black Angels, Electric Wizard, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Ministry, Chelsea Wolfe, Ty Segall, Golden Dawn Arkestra, Imarhan, the Men, and Al Lover are all stand-outs.
Don’t wait too long to get tickets. Tickets to individual shows at the 2016 festival sold out quick and many tickets went to scalpers who flipped them at outrageous prices. More announcements are due in the early part of 2018, and that will only cause tickets to sell faster.
Keep your mind open.
