Psych Fest 2018 recognises the places where we meet as stolen land.  We acknowledge the traditional custodians of these lands, and pay respect to the Elders past & present.  Sovereignty was never ceded.  Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.

opening night

Psych Fest returns with its biggest line-up ever in 2018.  This is Australia’s premiere independent boutique music festival showcasing all thing modulated, reverberated, fuzzed out, and delayed.

With a focus on inclusiveness and diversity, Psych Fest 2018 is set to deliver the perfect prescription of music and art, hand-picked from across our nation, as well as a few special guests from across the seas.

Let's get together and do it (again)!

It's important to us to keep our tickets reasonably priced, and we've worked really hard to make sure that we can do just that. 

Whilst we make big efforts to ensure our events are as accessible as possible, capacity is strictly limited and we cannot guarantee that General Admission tickets will be available for purchase on the day.

All previous festival events have completely sold out.

Get 'em while they're hot!
