Lewes Psychedelic Festival 2020
Westgate Chapel, East Sussex.
Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. We cannot issue refunds to under 16s who are not accompanied by an adult.
Lewes Psychedelic Festival returns with visuals and music for the senses in the ancient setting of Lewes, with two events featuring an array of artists on the psych spectrum on the weekend of 17th and 18th January 2020
Melting Vinyl and Innerstrings are proud to announce Lewes Psychedelic Festival 2020.
The festival returns on Saturday 18th January at the All Saints Centre, plus this year at the historic Westgate Chapel on Friday 17th January.
Lewes Psych Fest has a reputation for bringing together a wide variety of acts under the psych umbrella, and historically has always sold out well in advance; so we advise early purchase of tickets.
As ever, international visual artists Innerstrings will be bringing the visuals, turning both venues into a bath of swirling liquid light, not unlike being in a giant lava lamp.
Our first announcement for the festival:
Vanishing Twin + Special Guests + Innerstrings Visuals
We welcome the return of Vanishing Twin to Lewes Psych Fest as our headliner at Westgate Chapel.
We fell in love with Vanishing Twin upon first seeing them. Summoning up memories of seeing Stereolab and Broadcast, Vanishing Twin are all that, and much more besides. Their latest album "The Age Of Immunology", released on the legendary Fire Records, has had glowing reviews the world over; deservedly so!
Drawing on sounds outside of the usual pop vocabulary, Vanishing Twin use forgotten drum machines, home-made electronics, vibraphones, tablas, and harp to invoke the esoteric psychedelia of lost soundtracks, radiophonic experiments and minimal music orchestras.
Vanishing Twin, one of the most exciting young groups in England at the moment, the term is used in dismay on living through a period where borders are being hardened, walls are being built and new boundaries being needlessly imposed. Band members may come from Japan, Italy, France and America but they have all made England their home and, on this album, they are heralds of the much better future that is being rapidly dismantled as we speak. 'The Age Of Immunology' - which is sung in all the primary languages of the musicians who made it as well as English - is the soundtrack for those who still believe in the pluralist dream, where the other is embraced and learned from, not isolated and
'Where Vanishing Twin have come from, or where they're going next, is completely immaterial - and rather trivial. This is, by any measure, an astounding piece of work by some immensely talented individuals. They now occupy a throne that has sat empty for years, and have made an album worthy of all the praise it will undoubtedly receive.'
'The Age of Immunology is, simply, a masterpiece'.
