Lewes Psychedelic Festival returns with visuals and music for the senses, in the ancient setting of Lewes and the stunning All Saints Centre.
ZOFFF are a south coast based psychedelic krautrock band, assembled from various members of the rather brilliant Cardiacs, Levitation, Sons of Noel and Adrian, Clowwns and Crayola Lectern. It was Crayola Lectern’s mind-blowing performance of ‘Trip In D’ at the last Lewes Psych Fest that inspired them to form this collective. Intense and unpredictable, ZOFFF’s performances are the stuff of future legend.
We are really pleased to have booked NOVELLA after seeing them play an amazing set (with fan Bobby Gillespie in attendance) in London back in May. The London based (but originally on these shores) band create their own intensively psych-ethereal harmonies and melodic garage sound.
Brighton-based Soft Walls (with a Lewes connection) is the solitude, singular and unique vision of Cold Pumas member and Faux Discx overseer Dan Reeves, who incorporates a broad palette of sonic textures from psychedelic pop to found sounds. We’re a big fan of their 60s echo sound.
We needed some youths on the line-up and new Brighton up-and-comers Wax Machine fit the bill. They are pure psychedelic rockers with a love for the 60s, alongside a contemporary and experimental approach to the hazy, lo-fi sounds of psychedelia.
THE CULT OF DOM KELLER Nottingham four-piece are a groovy bunch of sonic alchemists, who create whacked-out soundscapes and songs that appear to have been born from another universe. Their fuzz-laden psych pop is infectious and consuming and are destined to blow you away.
The south London group are a perfect blend of psychedelic majesty, speaking to everyday anxiety and isolation as well as seeking to evoke an inner world of pastoral fortification. They draw influence from the radiophonic sounds of Broadcast, the kosmische wonder of Cluster and the rhythmic propulsion of This Heat whilst never directly emulating any particular style. We are more than excited to have them join this stellar line-up!
And hereth our line-up 2016 is complete!
