The Quietus is once more pleased to be partnering with the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia this autumn - as the leaves fall, so our mynds will spiral. And what a corker of a bill they're putting together, as ever going beyond fuzz pedal paisley genericism for a line-up that includes The Horrors (perhaps suggesting a new LP is in the offing?), Super Furry Animals, Demdike Stare, Silver Apples, Dungen, Cavern Of Anti-Matter, Taman Shud, Moonlandingz, Ye Nuns, Ashtray Navigations and many, many more - you can find out more information on the line-up and ticket info from the Festival website here. Of note will be a special part of the bill by Japanese label Guruguru Brain, who will present an Asian underground showcase called Narrow Road To The Deep Mind. Liverpool Psyche Fest takes place at the Camp & Furnace, Blade Factory and District venues in Liverpool's Baltic Triangle on 23rd and 24th September 2016. Watch the festival trailer above and the full line-up poster is below.

Last year our third eye cruiser Julian Marszalek had this to say about the Festival: "And so it ends. Handshakes and hugs are exchanged among old friends and new as this psychedelic Brigadoon winds down for another year. Having broken through to the other side for two magical days, the world is going to look a little different come Sunday morning. But whatever happens between now and the end of next September, the events of the Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia are indelibly etched on the brain to serve as a reminder of how good a festival really can be when delivered with focus, purpose and, yes, love."
