Psych is (still) blooming – though, at times, it can be a bit difficult figuring out what that genre label really means, seeing all sorts of “psych” bands appearing on various playlists and on the radio. Have we run out of actual psych bands? A quick look at the impressive line-up will give you the answer (spoiler; we haven’t, there’s still plenty of psych bands to experience – and Aarhus Psych Fest is the place to do so).
Aarhus Psych Festival has, once again, managed to find some of the most interesting names from in- and outside DK and gathered them under the ”psych” umbrella. Being the first of its kind in Scandinavia, it’s quite impressive that they’re doing this year after year at the fine and beloved venue Radar down at Godsbanen. It’s quite simply the festival for music lovers.
Usually, the line-up is mostly this wide range of genre-bending underground artists – but every year, one or two artists sticks out. This year it’s a solo show with Norman Westberg from legendary New York band Swans. Westberg will also be performing a free impro-show with Denmark’s own Jomi Massage – today at Dokk1. How about that!
Apart from the luscious buffet of music, as it’s been called (and is), there’s also an arts program free for both audience and outside guests to experience – the theme is ‘Construction’.
Anyways, here’s the line-up (and schedule) for the 2016 edition of Aarhus Psych Fest, and below that, you can explore the fine artists performing this year.
