In its third annual takeover of Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Psycho has without a doubt claimed the throne as one of the world’s premier destination festivals in the US. This year will feature art exclusively designed by the legendary Dirty Donny Gillies, best known for his work with Metallica, Stern Pinball, Vans and more.
Due to recent developments that have been brought to the organizers’ attention, Young and in the Way will no longer be performing at the Psycho Las Vegas pre-fest pool party. Their spot will be filled shortly.
The return and reunion of Swedish psychedelic fuzz legends Witchcraft will be playing their first US show since 2009. In line with their reputation for scoring highly coveted sets, Psycho Las Vegas will be only one of two US dates that the band will be performing in 2018. Joining the ranks are Italian purveyors of prog rock, Goblin, most notable for their original scores for Dawn of the Dead & Disturbia, beloved stoned thrashers High On Fire; guitar lord Zakk Sabbath; horror-synth group S U R V I V E, best known for scoring Stranger Things; the reunion of Chicago doom heavyweights Indian; and UK’s prog mastersDVNE, who will be performing their first ever US show at this year’s fest.
Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am PST here, and the first 2500 tickets sold to this year’s fest will include tickets to the Psycho pre-fest pool party…last year’s included Pentagram and Conan, so this is definitely an event not to miss!
