Psychedelic fans converge at Levitation Festival this weekend in Austin, Texas for three days of reverberating sounds. Now in it’s eighth year, the mind-bending festival presents an impressive lineup of new-comers and heavy hitters, and it’s all just minutes from downtown at Carson Creek Ranch.
Headlining acts include Brian Wilson performing Pet Sounds, Ween, Animal Collective, and Flying Lotus. Other notable acts include Courtney Barnett, The Arcs, Lee “Scratch” Perry, and The Black Angels.
This festival stands out among the scores of Austin music events for an exceptionally chill – and stylish – crowd. The people-watching is top-notch and proves to be the most legit ‘festival fashion’ I’ve seen unlike *cough* Coachella *cough.*
But we’re here for the music.
Get transported to an elevated state with Sound Dessert’s Levitation 2016 Playlist, featuring some of my favorite acts of the weekend including Sound Dessert alumnae The Blind Suns, plus Woods, Delicate Steve, Bayonne and more. Enjoy, and I’ll see you out on the ranch.
