LEVITATION 2019

LEVITATION returned in 2019 for its 11th year, taking over downtown Austin, TX and melting minds at numerous sold out shows across the 4 day weekend.

During LEVITATION’s second year embracing the non-traditional fest format, we saw our most diverse lineup yet – from reverb-laden psychedelia to thrash metal to darkwave to old school punk. With over 30 shows spread across 10 venues, attendees were allowed the freedom to curate their own experience.

The star-studded lineup included JOHN CALE of The Velvet Underground, THE FLAMING LIPS, ANGEL OLSEN, KURT VILE, THE BLACK ANGELS, HIGH ON FIRE, ALLAH-LAS, KIKAGAKU MOYO, DEAFHEAVEN, CHELSEA WOLFE, NIGHT BEATS, DINOSAUR JR, A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS, RED FANG, BLACK MOUNTAIN, and so many more.

“…one of the few expertly curated festivals left in the U.S., touching on all things spacey and fuzzed out… bringing droves of fans to sold-out rooms across the Texas capital – REVOLVER MAG

“Jumping around from Torche to John Cale to Flipper across several venues, and capping off the night with Beak>’s dub-trip-hop in a single Saturday, is a kind of cross-genre mashup that rarely happens anymore. It was thrilling and varied, like the SXSWs of old” – TEXAS MONTHLY

“…an experience like no other Texas music festival. From the curation of acts, to the overall communal feel, the psychedelic music showcase was clearly a different kind of event. “ – SA CURRENT

“…carefully arranged myriad music scenes like puzzle pieces on the Downtown map… It’s what usually happens on Red River, but all at once and drenched in liquid light. – THE AUSTIN CHRONICLE
