It’s been a long time coming for Milwaukee Psych Fest VIII. Originally scheduled for the spring of 2020, the eighth installment of the loud, fuzzed-out, and reverb-drenched blowout was canceled due to then-new COVID-19 pandemic. A rescheduled festival was set for the fall of 2021, but that, too, was canceled due to COVID concerts. Now, Milwaukee Psych Fest VIII is (finally!) due to take over The Cooperage May 4-6. And there’s a lineup video to prove it!

Organizer Andrew Shelp promises more lineup announcements—as well as ticket info—soon. Until then, dig into the trippy discographies of these announced acts. Acid Mothers Temple!!!
