LIVE, IN PHOTOS: Levitation 2019

Angel Olsen, The Flaming Lips, Chelsea Wolfe, Dinosaur Jr., and more brought their psychedelic sounds to Austin this past weekend.

Even though there was no surprise appearance from Frank Ocean, this past weekend’s Levitation fest in Austin proved a memorable affair, with the likes of The Flaming Lips, Chelsea Wolfe, Dinosaur Jr., and The Black Angels waging psychedelic warfare against our earbuds. An expertly curated lineup featuring psych-rock heavy hitters and songwriters well-versed in other various strains of ’70s rock took to stages across the Texas capitol to give ACL and SXSW a run for their money.

Several of those scenes have been documented in striking black-and-white and hallucinatory color by our photographer Daniel Cavazos below.
