paris psych fest
Early 60’s, american west coast.
A new phenomenon is rising in the restricted underground culture, even going beyond its borders to become a real musical and social revolution. Under the aegis of the 13th Floor Elevator band, the phenomenon takes off with Jimi Hendrix’s famous album ‘Are You Experienced?’. Since then, psychedelic music became a culture in its own right, one of the rock’s major movement, way beyond the 60’s iconoclast energy.
This musical scene has always kept exporting and developing, but today a true artistic renewal is giving to psyche a previously unseen extent.
Within this abundant creativity takes place the Paris International Festival of Psychedelic Music With the will to supply and spread this fascinating culture, the festival offers a multidisciplinary event.
