As Cardiff Psych and Noise Fest announces its dates and the first wave of acts Getintothis’ Josh McMahon has all the details of this bank holiday weekender.
Cardiff Psych & Noise Fest will return in 2019 for the May 24-26 bank holiday weekend, taking place across three venues on the legendary Womanby Street in Cardiff.
The weekend festival is aimed at those of us that are dying for a shot of all things psych, noisy, experimental and generally weird It boasts a whole host of scuzzy, mind warping acts on offer.
If you’re looking for soft-pop, we doubt you’ll find it here, however, If you want to taste some new, shocking, fresh music, this my friend, is the indulgence for you.
Islet will be taking to the stage to provide some mucky-goodness alongside other great left-field artists such as the wonderfully electro-gressive Teeth of the Sea, genre-straddling Kapil Seshasayee, the dissonantly exhilarating USA Nails, Raketkanon, Gallops, Sly & the Family Drone, Ill, El Goodo and Sendelica.
With such a wide variety in the line-up there is sure to be something to tantalise your hardened, noise-craving musical tastebuds.
