Psycho Music Fest Full Event Lineup Announcement Scheduled for Thursday, April 11
LAS VEGAS (April 5, 2018) – Fans of one of the nation’s top music festivals for all that is rock ‘n’ roll, PSYCHO LAS VEGAS, can soak it up a day early with Psycho Swim, the ultimate live music pool party at DAYLIGHT Beach Club at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Thursday, Aug. 15. This intimate event is curated with all things PSYCHO LAS VEGAS fans have come to love, featuring bands both new to the festival as well as classic Psycho fan favorites: Corrosion of Conformity, Lucifer, Danava, ASG, Primitive Man, Idle Hands, Howling Giant and Thrown Into Exile. Tickets start at $35 (not including fees) and are on sale now at VivaPsycho.com and AXS.com.
The festival’s new location at Mandalay Bay brings enhanced levels of entertainment to PSYCHO LAS VEGAS, including the daylong Psycho Swim pool party at DAYLIGHT Beach Club. Alt-metal veterans Corrosion of Conformity bring their mix of punk turned bluesy metal to the festival hot off the heels of 2018’s No Cross No Crown, which saw mainstream play as the album reached Billboard’s Top 100. Heavy rockers Lucifer led by frontwoman Johanna Sadonis and now with multi-instrumentalist Nicke Andersson are reaching new heights as they bring their tour to the U.S. following a successful European run and release of their second studio album, aptly titled Lucifer II. Psycho Las Vegas also brings back hard rockers Portland’s Danava; stoner metal band ASG; apocalyptic Denver band Primitive Man; and Nashville’s Howling Giant. Portland’s Idle Hands and Los Angeles’ Thrown into Exile join the PSYCHO LAS VEGAS lineup for the first time.
Doors for Psycho Swim at DAYLIGHT Beach Club open at 11 a.m., and the show starts at noon. Early bird ticket sales start at $35 (not including fees) and will increase to $45 (not including fees) following the first 1,000 tickets sold. Guests must be 21 years and older. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at VivaPsycho.com and AXS.com. Those with the sold-out High Roller passes will enjoy cabana rentals at Psycho Swim.
The full festival lineup for PSYCHO LAS VEGAS will be announced Thursday, April 11 at 10 a.m. with additional events forthcoming. While the highly coveted Psycho Special and VIP High Roller passes quickly sold out, three-day General Admission tickets at Tier 1 pricing for $249 (not including fees) are available and on-sale now.

About PSYCHO LAS VEGAS
PSYCHO LAS VEGAS is the premier vacation-destination music festival in the U.S. for those who worship all that is rock ‘n’ roll. After three award-winning years housed under the confines of the Hard Rock, America’s rock ‘n’ roll bacchanal is moving to the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino through an exclusive partnership with MGM Entertainment, and will usher in a new era of spectacle, performance and production. This milestone accomplishment for the 7th edition of the event will ravish the senses across four stages including the newly renovated Events Center, the iconic House of Blues, the Mandalay Bay Beach and a takeover of the old-school Vegas-style Rhythm & Riffs Lounge in the very center of the casino floor. In 2019, Psycho is rebooting America’s conception of what a festival can be, on its own terms and with its signature mix of grit and grandeur.
