Sydney’s most fuzzed out boutique music festival Psych Fest Australia is BACK, and rocking a rebrand!
Held in Sydney since 2013, Psych Fest is reborn as Bad Vibrations, showcasing all things modulated, reverberated, fuzz laden and delayed.
We’re bringing local and international independent psych, punk and garage to Vivid Sydney. Our stacked 2019 program will include a one day festival, an all ages party and a free showcase event.
Past line-ups included Kikagaku Moyo (Japan) New Candys (Italy), Buried Feather, Egoism, Flavor Crystals (US), Moaning Lisa, Glitoris, Flyying Colours, Imperial Broads, Julia Why?, Carsick Cars (China), Lazertits, Sports Bra and more.
Bad Vibrations believes music is for everyone. Our commitment to supporting local talent and building a safe and inclusive community remains steadfast. Our events always aim to lead by example when it comes to gender parity on line-ups, sustainability and safer-spaces practices.
We reckon that if we can make this happen on a DIY level with a small, independent team, major festivals and music events can too. Now more than ever, we need to show the powers that be how important music events like these are to our community, AND that we can do them right.
Bad Vibrations recognises the places where we meet as stolen land. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of these lands, and pay respect to the Elders past and present. Sovereignty was never ceded. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
