Returning for its third year! An evening festival exploring some fantastic music on the Psych spectrum brought to you by the curators of Lewes Psychedelic Festival. Expect an audio visual treat for your senses, from visual artist Innerstrings who will be washing Quarterhouse in warm, multi-coloured light projections.

This year's line up includes AK/DK, Swedish Death Candy, Spill Gold and Tokyo Tea Room!

Brighton duo AK/DK must have some of the most well-fed ears around, having gorged them on a diet of Throbbing Gristle, Devo, Suicide and Silver Apples. Over the last five years, they’ve managed to both emulate their heroes and bring a new pop sensibility to the grimy analogue blueprint – all the while emitting a barrage of wonky arpeggios with high-energy abandon. From dancefloor beats to spacey bleeps, they throw a smorgasbord of technical nous at both their albums and live sets, winning praise from BBC Radio 6 Music and NME in the process.

Swedish Death Candy
Swedish Death Candy are psychedelic, yes, but not many bands can boast to be able to combine that with crunching heaviness, melodic power and mind-bending dynamics, pulling influences from Black Sabbath to Queens of The Stone Age via Can and The Beatles to Oasis. Calling London their homebase, Swedish Death Candy have their roots spread across the international spectrum featuring members from the UK, Italy and South Korea.

Tokyo Tea Room
Born in a dark and slightly damp basement, Tokyo Tea Room combine fuzzy guitar tones, melodic bass-lines and ocean deep vocals to create a unique blend of PsychPopRock. Since the release of their debut EP ' Key Philosophy' the band have been playing gigs and festivals across the UK, and shared bills with names such as Wolf Alice, The Mystery Jets and Super Furry Animals. They have also gained support slots for Spring King and The Moonlandingz on their UK tours.

Their latest EP 'Another Place, Another Time' was released on vinyl through Easter Island Records, with singles 'Sunset Exit' and 'Autophobia' attracting attention from BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Introducing amongst others.

Spill Gold
Electronic, psychedelic pop band Spill Gold formed in the Netherlands in
late 2017, releasing their debut self titled EP at the end of that year.
Born from members of Dutch dream-pop ensemble Bird On The Wire, they
have gone on to tour around the world, sharing stages with the likes of
Exploded View, St.Vincent and Beak>.

Their self-titled EP has been championed by the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music's new music taste-maker Tom Ravenscroft and DIY Magazine.
