On Wednesday, fest organizers announced a new round of artists including 90s post punk band the Make-Up, avant-garde pop artist Ariel Pink and soulful singer Nick Hakim. Also added to the bill are Canadian shoe-gaze outfit No Joy, Brooklyn rockers Diiv, Brazilian psych rockers Boogarins and local art-pop ensemble, the Octopus Project.

The festival also added second shows from previously-announced artists Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees.

Levitation 2018 takes place from April 26-29 and tickets to roughly 20 individual shows at six venues are on sale now.
