Top-billed acts at this year’s celebration of psychedelia include UK acts Primal Scream, Loop, the Zombies and the Horrors and domestic talents the Black Lips and Of Montreal. As always, Austin’s own reverb fiends (and festival co-founders) The Black Angels will also perform. Japanese bands Acid Mother’s Temple and Mono, Malian guitar wizards Terakaft and French artist La Femme round out the festival’s impressive international offerings.

Moving into its seventh year, Austin Psych Fest will return to Carson Ranch, the private property just east of town where it staked out camp for the 2013 festival, on May 2-4, 2014. Weekend passes start at $126.69. Camping passes range from $80.34 to $858.79, depending on how fancy you like your music in the woods experience. All tickets are currently available at austinpsychfest.frontgatetickets.com.

The lineup announcement first came across on Noisey, the music blog offshoot of Vice Magazine that has signed on as a media sponsor of this year’s festival. The post hinted that more A-List bands might join the lineup.
