The infamous stoner rock and heavy metal music festival, Psycho Las Vegas, is returning to the Mandalay Bay casino in August 2020. This multi-stage, three day festival will host some of the biggest names in the metal music scene including, Mayhem, Ulver, Ty Segall & The Freedom Band, Blonde Redhead, and Windham. If these names aren’t exciting enough then fans can look forward to Psycho Entertainment announcing more of the acts that will be taking the stage in December. Psycho Las Vegas will take place August 14th-16th but fans who show up early will get to experience the one stage Psycho Swim pool party taking place on August 13th.
Psycho Entertainment are the pioneers in the resort-wide casino takeovers, they have gained global notoriety through their consistent show-stopping lineups that deliver a diversely eccentric experience for each fan in attendance. They have specialized in genres from post-rock to black-metal and more recently electronica, which is apart of the world of EDM. Psycho’s wide-ranging musical allure brings together musicians and fans from all corners of the world.
Fans rejoiced when they heard that Psycho was coming back to Las Vegas earlier this year, the event was topped off by acts such as Opeth, Carcass, Beach House, Vio-lence, Full of Hell, Graveyard, Clutch, Mark Lanegan, and many others incredible acts. Fans can only expect a bigger and better festival this year as the entertainment company has proven to go above and beyond to top themselves. This will be the fifth consecutive year that Psycho Entertainment has put on this event in the swirling neon decadence that is Las Vegas. Psycho will feature over seventy artists across four stages including the world-class Events Center, the iconic House Of Blues, Mandalay Bay Beach, and the vintage Vegas-style Rhythm & Riffs Lounge in the center of the casino floor.
