Austin Psych Fest

When: May 8th-10th

Where: Austin, Texas

Why Go: Leaving enough time to recover from the maelstrom that was SXSW, Austin keeps it weird with the annual Psych Fest, held at Carson Creek Ranch. This year's lineup suggests that freaks of all generations are welcome, spanning 50 years of psychedelic excellence. 13th Floor Elevators and the Jesus and Mary Chain headline, but don't miss contemporary local greats like Tele Novella. If you can spare $274 and endure the brutal pollen count, weekend admission with a camping pass is the way to go.

15 Must-See Acts: 13th Floor Elevators, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Melody's Echo Chamber, Mac DeMarco, the Soft Moon, Lightning Bolt, Health, Metz, Fat White Family, Föllakzoid, Las Robertas, White Fence, Tele Novella, Spiritualized, Primal Scream
