We're teaming up again with our TX homies at LEVITATION to offer one more chance to win deluxe weekend passes for this year's fest, which takes place in just a few weeks down in Austin. Much has been made about this year's incredible lineup: Brian Wilson doing Pet Sounds, Slowdive, Animal Collective, Caribou, Shabazz Palaces/Oneohtrix Point Never/Nicolas Jaar/Flying Lotus all back-to-back-to-back-to-back on the same stage, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Melody's Echo Chamber, Ty Segall, Lee Scratch Perry, etc...
We were already pretty psyched for Austin's LEVITATION 2016, but this is unreal. In addition to the previously announced initial lineup, which included Flying Lotus, Animal Collective, and Brian Wilson performing Pet Sounds, the fest announced some pretty sweet additions this morning: Nicolas Jaar, Shabazz Palaces, Oneohtrix Point Never, Caribou, Slowdive, Dungen, and a whole lot more.
