“…the whole weekend had the feel of a heavy-metal family gathering meets The Big Lebowski; a laid-back get-together with an ensemble cast of far-out characters, from gray-haired dudes in Captain Beefheart T-shirts to Yeti-shaggy heavy-metal epicureans…” – Las Vegas Journal
In less than three months, the 2017 edition of PSYCHO LAS VEGAS will make its descent upon the Hard Rock Hotel And Casino Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Set to commence on August 18th and run through August 20th, 2017 with a peparty to be held on August 17th, the event flaunts a jaw-dropping lineup that includes headlining sets from Atlanta goliaths, Mastodon, psychedelic rock legends, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and heavy metal icon King Diamond performing the zenith Abigail opus in its entirety as a US-exclusive. Recent additions, reunited UK doom icons Warning, will also grace the fest alongside cult stoner/desert rock unit Slo Burn, fronted by Kyuss’ John Garcia, Sleep, Wolves In The Throne Room, Ace Frehley, Neurosis, Gojira, Corrosion Of Conformity, Pelican, Chelsea Wolfe, Carcass and over seven dozen of the scene’s most groundbreaking, eclectic, and plainly ruling acts. PSYCHO LAS VEGAS is already – and rightly so – being hailed as one of the best heavy lineups ever put together for an American festival.
