VENUE: 107 Redfern

PsyconFest comes back for its 10th edition with a full venue takeover at 107 Projects, Redfern.
Born from our love for music and the motivation to see an eventful musical scene, PsyconFest aims at shwocases Australian artists whose music blends multiple genres together: a bit of psych here, a bit of experimental stuff there, and a pinch of ambient, jazz and improvised music...

On Sat 13 April, you're in for a musical treat with an eclectic line-up across 3 stages, in the main gallery, the performance space and rooftop stage:

Seen Herbivore, Othrship, Mia Petra, Madame Rêve, Lulu Ilanda, Godriguez, Very Fast Band, Balko and Zsa Zsa.

Inner West based jazz(ish) group Seen Herbivore merge high energy, vitamin dense grooves with unfettered improvisations, sending listeners on a journey that is equal parts captivating and enriching.

Othrship is an explosive reimagining of 70s experimental rock. Time-tunneling with sensational thrust power, Othrship's crew generates an astonishing Pan Galatic blast of experimental, psychedelic and progressive rock that keeps audiences traveling beyond the speed of light.

Mia Petra is a songwriter and producer based in Muloobinba (Newcastle). A serial genre blender, Mia draws inspiration from folk, jazz, soul, experimental and electronic music, resulting in listening environments that are both heart-hitting and deeply refreshing.

Madame Reve is a Parisian, Sydney based DJ with a strong passion for spreading quality music. Originally hailing from Paris, Madame Reve is well educated in both the French and Australian underground music scenes, with her finger firmly set on the pulse. Known for her rich and broad taste, Madame Reve floats from funk, jazz-house, disco-soul, to the melodic sounds of Mali, through the metro of Paris, and back to Sydney’s finest music makers. Madame Reve also hosts a regular program on renowned community radio station 89.7fm.

Lulu ilanda is a diverse creative offering psych-folk-rock arrangements of her original songs with renowned Cariocan guitarist Victor Jesus. Together they utilize live effects, looping and flexible feel to swell ethereal harmonics, catchy songwriting and emotional, sometimes dark or humorous, lyrical sentiments. Jeff Buckley meets Daughter, Lulu ilanda and Victor Jesus combine vulnerability and technology to leave you soulfully satisfied.

Godriguez (solo), the guitarist and frontman of the critically acclaimed 5 piece GODTET, first stepped onto the international scene as the producer and creative force behind Sampa The Great's breakthrough release "The Great Mixtape", acting as musical director at festivals such as Splendour In The Grass and Laneway and played supports for Kendrick Lamar, Fat Freddy's His solo sets have been critically acclaimed.

With Harley Coleman's VERY FAST BAND, you can expect their trademark ferocious and infectious energy to light the place up as they channel the raw power of the urban landscape, dazzling you with their virtuosic instrumental prowess.

From the city of Sydney, BALKO have been toiling away, playing live shows and recording music for 9 years, dabbling in an array of genres…flicking paint at the wall and seeing what sticks. Their mathy progressive/post-rock instrumentals on ‘Beauty Bot’ in 2023 or their love for improvisation on their latest release ‘Balkonization Live and Improvised’ (both released via PsyconFest Records) BALKO will continue to throw you colourful curve balls with no explanation.
