Rock festival of the week: Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia, Camp & Furnace/Blade Factory, Liverpool
Friday 20 September 2013
MGMT and Tame Impala having kept the genre's flame mildly flickering lately, this Liverpool festival celebrates the more potent fringes of psychedelic sub-cultures.
Brimming with drone devotees and avatars of the jam, the packed line-up includes masked Liverpudlians Clinic (above), San Francisco groove-niks Moon Duo, DC explorers Dead Meadow and Leeds nihilists Hookworms.
Extra enticements for fearless astral travellers include short films, symposiums and, of course, some of the "finest live visual operators" around.
