Fans of one of the nation’s top music festivals for all that is rock ‘n’ roll, Psycho Las Vegas, can soak it up a day early with Psycho Swim, the ultimate live music pool party at DAYLIGHT Beach Club at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Thursday, Aug. 15 (Pictured: Corrosion of Conformity – Photo credit: Nathaniel Shannon).
This intimate event is curated with all things Psycho Las Vegas fans have come to love, featuring bands both new to the festival as well as classic Psycho fan favorites: Corrosion of Conformity, Lucifer, Danava, ASG, Primitive Man, Idle Hands, Howling Giant and Thrown Into Exile.
The festival’s new location at Mandalay Bay brings enhanced levels of entertainment to Psycho Las Vegas, including the daylong Psycho Swim pool party at DAYLIGHT Beach Club. Alt-metal veterans Corrosion of Conformity bring their mix of punk turned bluesy metal to the festival hot off the heels of 2018’s No Cross No Crown, which saw mainstream play as the album reached Billboard’s Top 100. Heavy rockers Lucifer led by frontwoman Johanna Sadonis and now with multi-instrumentalist Nicke Andersson are reaching new heights as they bring their tour to the U.S. following a successful European run and release of their second studio album, aptly titled Lucifer II. Psycho Las Vegas also brings back hard rockers Portland’s Danava; stoner metal band ASG; apocalyptic Denver band Primitive Man; and Nashville’s Howling Giant. Portland’s Idle Hands and Los Angeles’ Thrown into Exile join the Psycho Las Vegas lineup for the first time.
Doors for Psycho Swim at DAYLIGHT Beach Club open at 11 a.m., and the show starts at noon. Early bird ticket sales start at $35 (not including fees) and will increase to $45 (not including fees) following the first 1,000 tickets sold. Guests must be 21 years and older. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at VivaPsycho.com and AXS.com. Those with the sold-out High Roller passes will enjoy cabana rentals at Psycho Swim.
