After a devastating rain out in 2016, Levitation Fest won’t return to Austin this year, but event’s flagship act, the Black Angels, will headline Stubb’s BBQ on May 20 with A Place to Bury Strangers.

Tickets to the show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Along with a few friends from the local Reverb Appreciation Society record label, Alex Maas and Christian Bland from the Black Angels launched Levitation as Austin Psych Fest in 2008. The fest had quietly grown into an international destination fest since moving to Carson Creek Ranch in 2013.  A message on the fest’s website says “Levitation will be back in 2018.”
