This weekend Liverpool will become a mecca for fans of the weird and warped, as The International Festival of Psychedelia brings a smorgasbord of experimental psych, electronic and drone acts to various venues around the city.
The event’s switched-on organisers have enlisted psych stalwarts Sonic Boom, Clinic and Dead Meadow to play alongside newer charges including The KVB, Hookworms and White Manna for two days of mind-bending mayhem.
Activities kick off this afternoon at a former warehouse on the outskirts of the city centre and to celebrate we’ve dedicated our weekly playlist to some of the weekend’s most exciting acts.
For your listening delectation we have tracks by Spectrum, Mugstar, Moon Duo, The Oscillation and Mo Kolours, plus some unexpected remixes and more. So dig in and enjoy!
We’ll be there a Psych Fest all weekend, talking to some of the bands and getting to grips with the latest developments in psychedelia’s evolution from sixties obscurity to global movement. Look out for interviews, sessions and more over the coming days.
