The Casino Festival: Why We’re Hyped About Psycho Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay

There’s already been so much said and written about the lineup for Psycho Las Vegas 2019. For a festival that offers so much spectacle and which has expanded each and every year in its relatively short lifespan, this years’ lineup looks to continue that upward trend in a major way. What makes this lineup particularly special is the variety of rock, metal, and all of the other genres included. When you realise that Glassjaw, Warrior’s Triumph of Death, and Tom G. are sharing the same bill, your jaw wants to drop just a little bit.

If you want to know about the famous Las Vegas resort of Mandalay Bay Casino, you can read more here. If you’re making your way to Mandalay Bay for this special August weekend, you have the opportunity to enjoy a stunning assemblage that you will only see once this lifetime. When it comes to guests, it may be the first time we’ve seen something this scale put together in the history of the U.S. It’s certainly one you’ll be telling your grandchildren about.

Megadeth and Opeth to headline

Legends of thrash metal and Grammy-award winners Megadeth and titans of progressive metal Opeth will join doom icons and alumni of Psycho Las Vegas Electric Wizard as the headlines of the main stage. Opeth’s performance will be the band’s only one of the year. The event’s curators have also added post-rock band Mogwai, American thrash band Vio-lence, black metal act 1349, psychedelic stoner rock band Dead Meadow, alt-rock legend and one-time Screaming Tees frontman Mark Lanegan, and Bruce Lamont appearing with his avant-metal band Yakuza, as well as with his Led Zeppelin tribute act Led Zeppelin 2.

In addition to all of that, Two Minutes To Late Night, the only heavy meal talk show in the world, will present its successful YouTube show on stage while Andre W.K., the self-help guru, music producer, and recording artist will close the ceremony for the second consecutive year with a DJ set.

Also on the lineup

Also on this year’s lineup are Clutch, The Black Angels, High on Fire, Uncle Acid and The Deadbeats, Deafheaven, Graveyard, Cold Cave, Carcass, Fu Manchu, Power Trip, Rotting Christ, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Old Man Gloom, Oranssi Pazuzu, Tobacco, Black mountain, YOB, Goatwhore, Full of Hell, En Minor, The Obsessed, Amenra, Kadavar, Soft Kill, Nothing Perturbator, Truckfighters, Grails, Dvne, Mork, Have a Nice Life, Warhorse, Royal Thunder, L.A.

Between Aug 16-18, rock, punk, and heavy metal fans will get a chance to see their favourite acts play at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The lineup announcement followed the announcement of Psycho Swim, a day-long music-led pool party at Mandalay Bay’s Daylight Beach Club on August 15 featuring Thrown Into Exile, Howling Giant, Idle Hands, Primitive man, ASG, Danava, Lucifer, and Corrosion of Conformity.

Over four stages

Psycho will enthral and captivate audiences from four stages, including Mandalay Bay Beach, the House of Blues, and the Events Center, which has recently been renovated. The event will also take over the Rhythm and Riffs Lounge on the casino floor. With its renowned mix of grime, grit, and grandeur, the event will change America’s idea of what festivals should be. Psycho has trickled out many of its acts scheduled for 2019 over the past few months, which have signalled that this year’s event will be even more diverse than the previous three festivals.

The annual event, which is always meticulously curated, has gained recognition throughout the world for consistently providing line-ups that grow increasingly eclectic and diverse with each passing year. From electronica to world music, from black metal to post-rock, the wide-ranging musical extravaganza has expanded since its inception, bringing together artists and musicians from the world over. Coachella may still be the most reconsigned festival in the country but for rock fans, it’s hard to beat Psycho. Tickets are on sale now from VivaPsycho.com for $35 (plus taxes and fees) for those 21 years and over.
