Since 2013, Moss Folk’s Andrew Shelp has organized an undertaking of all things psychedelic. In its first four years, Milwaukee Psych Fest has evolved into a multi-day, multi-venue celebration of the reverb-y, droned out, and trippy elements of the catch-all genre. From May 11-13, the event will return with approximately 40 bands, DJs, and visual artists taking to three venues in as many days as part of Milwaukee Psych Fest V.

This year’s iteration includes acts from California, Texas, Montana, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Indiana, and Illinois, as well as Kikagaku Moyo from Japan. Show will also feature local support from the likes of Calliope, Moss Folk, Dirty Dancing, Moon Rats, Ravi/Lola, Drug Dragons, Mark Waldoch, Def Harmonic, and Milwaukee psych lords Vocokesh. Shelp is still putting the finishing touches on the lineup, but here’s the MPF lineup so far.
