Levitation Festival Announces 2023 Lineup With The Church, The Dandy Warhols, Twin Tribes, Beach Fossils, Nuovo Testamento, Blonde Redhead, Vosh, and More!

Austin, Texas will be the place to be over Halloween weekend as they announce the lineup for Levitation 2023. Headliners include Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Badbadnotgood, and Flying Lotus, whose groundbreaking music has earned them a spot as today’s trailblazers. Unwound, The Church, Amyl & The Sniffers, Dandy Warhols, and the Brian Jonestown Massacre are also set to take the stage on October 26-29.

For more than a decade, Levitation has been the conduit that connects the old and the new, the bygone psychedelic era to today’s vibrant musical expressions. This celebration transcends genres, encapsulating the aural essence of dream pop, punk, indie, metal, darkwave, and electronica, making it a modern-day time capsule of the 1960s’ unfettered auditory experimentation. Levitation is more than just a music festival – it’s a living, breathing anthology of vinyl records, spun into a thrilling four-day weekend. Its lineups stretch across generational divides and geographical borders, amalgamating into a heady mix that’s as intoxicating as a dusty record player spinning an old favorite.

This year’s eclectic lineup features Oneohtrix Point Never, Panda Bear, Sonic Boom, Twin Tribes, Vosh, Sacred Skin, Nuovo Testamento, Skull Practitioners, Ty Segall & Freedom Band, Beach Fossils, Blonde Redhead, Shannon & The Clams, High On Fire and many more.

The shows take place at Austin’s newest independent venues: electronic music destination Concourse Project, and South Austin’s outdoor, multi-stage event center, The Far Out Lounge, where Austin Psych Fest was held in April. These new locations are in addition to LEVITATION’s traditional Red River and East Side venues, including the festival’s downtown main stage Stubb’s, and Red River and Eastside staples Mohawk, Empire, Hotel Vegas, Elysium, Parish, Antone’s and 13th Floor.

The multi-venue format encourages fans to choose their own adventure through the weekend – you can buy single show tickets for over 30 different shows, or go all in with a 4-Day Pass and indulge in the entire 4-day Halloween weekend.

Final additions (including entire shows that haven’t been announced yet), light show, and video artists plus DJ sets are still on the way!

Single-show tickets and 4 days passes are currently available.
