There are some strange substances floating in the Mersey. The city has always been attracted to mind-expanding music, from 'Sgt. Pepper's' to Michael Head and beyond.
Returning this year, the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia promises another brain-melting bill.
Latest additions include the Fairport meets Zappa musings of Wolf People, Suuns, Sleepy Sun, White Hills and more. A truly international line up, the festival will welcome back The Early Years while newcomers Coves are also set to make an appearance.
It's not just live guitar music, though, with the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia also set to welcome The Chimes Of Big Ben. A 'brains trust' of Andrew Weatherall, Justin Robertson, Bernie Connor and Richard Hector-Jones, the results are a unique psychedelic audio adventure.
With Rocket Recordings and PNKSLM, the line up looks to be a stunning celebration of all things psych.
Tickets are on sale now.
Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia runs between September 26th - 27th.
