After five years of banging line-ups and boozy weekends, Bristol Psych Fest have now rebranded and changed their name – but fear not I’m sure the name Astral Festival will have just as much of an impact on the music scene. For its 6th instalment next July, Astral Festival will be spread across SWX, The Lanes and Rough Trade.
In a statement, founders of the event Stolen Body Records, said:
“We’ve decided to break away from the Psych Fest name as we were tired of having barriers. This festival is still very psych influenced but we believe it has so much scope to grow that we feel it needs its own identity. Here’s to another year of insane music!”
