Psycho Las Vegas has unveiled the official lineup for its 2022 festival. It will take place at Resorts World Las Vegas from August 19 through August 21.
Artists like Mercyful Fate, Emperor, Mayhem, Satyricon, Watain, Wolves In The Throne Room, Samael, Boris, MGLA, Cirith Ungol, King Woman, Marissa Nadler, Bömbers and Year of No Light will be featured at the festival. In addition, GZA, Dance With The Dead, Anika, The KVB, The Juliana Theory, Amenra and more will be performing.
Psycho Las Vegas saw several changes to its lineup and festival in 2021, due to ongoing Covid-19 concerns. It was originally meant to take place in August 2020, but was pushed back a whole year due to the pandemic. Some bands and artists were even forced to pull out of the festival in 2021, citing concerns over the pandemic.
However, some artists dropped out of the festival out of protests of mask mandates and the federal government’s handling of the pandemic. Robert Scott Weinrich (Wino), for example, pulled out of the festival, claiming that Covid-19 is a government-made tool that is being weaponized to aid depopulation.
Last year’s festival featured Mastodon, Cephalic Carnage, Goatwhore, The Flaming Lips, Thievery Corporation, Deafheaven, Cult of Fire, Drab Majesty, High on Fire, Down, Amigo the Devil and others. Psycho Las Vegas 2021 also featured a tribute album to Motörhead titled Löve Me Förever, which featured huge names in the music industry to celebrate the group and its contributions to the music world.
