Psycho Las Vegas features some of the most revered screen printed poster artwork with an exclusive exhibition from commissioned Psycho Las Vegas artist David D'Andrea. D'andrea, who returns to Psycho for a second year, created all the official festival artwork. Attendees will be able to eternally commemorate the event on their own walls with signed, limited edition works from D'Andrea.

Psycho Las Vegas acts and events were co-curated with music scene stalwart Sean "Pellet" Pelletier ("Last Days Here" documentary). He said: "Thief Presents 'Psycho' festivals are visionary and have consecutively been the number one music event I've want to attend since they've started.

"I've been dreaming about putting on a cool culture and music festival for quite some time and I jumped at the chance to help us all go psycho in Las Vegas!

"The event is a celebration of subculture and a spiritual gateway for all of us into sonically connected sub-genres of heavy rock that hopefully, some of which, may be new to our senses.

"I'm booking bands that I've always personally wanted to see and have requested setlists that we've all wanted to hear."

Among the first string of live acts announced will be hard rock legends BLUE ÖYSTER CULT with a set heavy on their early songs that have inspired so many great bands over the years. Mark Arm and Steve Turner, also both of GREEN RIVER fame, will remind us why MUDHONEY are heralded as essential grandfathers of grunge. English psych rock pioneer THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN returns to America with a performance sure to highlight where groundbreaking artists such as KISS, ALICE COOPER and GHOST may have gotten some of their ideas. Reunited proto-metal masters TRUTH AND JANEY will appear for an exclusive live set to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their underground classic debut, "No Rest For The Wicked". "A Band Called Death" documentary film stars DEATH, pulsate the pool stage and will show us why they are finally considered one of the first Detroit punk bands. Germany's top psychedelic stoners COLOUR HAZE have chosen the festival for a rare U.S. manifestation that's sure rise us all high above the neon. Swedish doom metal ministers CANDLEMASS come crushing in yet another one of Psycho Las Vegas's special performances.
