The Aarhus chapter of the Psych Fest concept has certainly been one of our favorite indoor festivals – and now their line-up for this year’s edition is complete. Three final names were announced today: Puja (a local psych group), Camera (a Berlin native kraut-rock extravaganza) and the fantastic psychedelic outfit from Chile: The Holydrug Couple.
Psych fest will be held on the 9th and 10th of October in the usual spots – RADAR and Den Rå Hal – two spots (in one building essentially) that have proven to be a perfect match for the diverse two day affair which has become Aarhus Psych Fest.
Aarhus Psych Fest, just like it’s mothership, Austin Psych Fest, was started as a grass roots and D.I.Y kind of operation to get a load of different bands from various underground genres, together for a few days of loud and dark music. The term “Psych” of course is an umbrella for anything from psychedelic retro-rock, punk, garage, surf, freak folk, kraut-rock, shoegaze and stoner. If you are confused as to what any of that is – don’t you worry, just check out some links for the line-up if you’re into weird music being played by humans. (at least we are told most of the performers are confirmed humans this year…)
One of the reasons why we like Psych Fest is that it’s a bargain. You can get the whole 2 days for 150 DKK. You know that’s good, and you know that’s about two beers and a pack of smokes. Limited one day tickets are available at 80-85 DKK – depending on which day you frequent.
Guys and girls – there is just so much in relation to the bands to write about – but you can keep up to date on all info and check out the artists on APF’s website – here.
And you can always check out our reviews of the last couple Aarhus Psych Fests here at Sound Of Aarhus – I’ll be looking over it myself, as I can’t remember too much – due to uh…..yeah. it’s a good time out!
