Psycho Las Vegas Announces Dates and Venue Change

Psycho comes to the Strip for the first time. The Las Vegas-based festival has made its preliminary 2019 announcement and put out word that it will relocate from the Hard Rock to Mandalay Bay, add another massive venue and double the amount of tickets sold. This is now a major US festival. What began as Psycho California with a skate ramp or whatever it was has now put itself in an entirely different echelon of events. And they’ll no doubt have the lineup to stand up to that.

I love the tag “America’s rock ‘n’ roll bacchanal.” Love it. It captures so perfectly what Psycho Las Vegas does, the odd spirit of the fest and the coming together of different worlds between the weirdo longhairs and the town of Vegas itself, so propped up by ideas of glamour and wealth. I helped write the press release that’s coming out sooner or later, but I didn’t come up with that tagline. I wish I had.

There are still lots of details to be announced about the stages and all that stuff. I’ve heard some of what’s going to happen, and it’s kind of staggering, so keep an eye out. Those worrying about the beach need not be concerned. I’ll say that.

The lineup hasn’t come through yet either, but is slated to later this month. If it’s December, that wouldn’t necessarily be unexpected, but you can pretty much figure it’ll be a beast when it does. After all, they’ve got all those extra tickets to sell.

More to come, of course:

PSYCHO LAS VEGAS 2019 To Take Place At Mandalay Bay Resort And Casino August 16th – 18th; Tickets Available On November 29th

America’s rock ‘n’ roll bacchanal returns as PSYCHO LAS VEGAS brings its annual debauchery and unbridled volume to the Strip itself, with a move to the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino that sets the stage for a Las Vegas Boulevard takeover, the likes of which have never been seen.

Slated for August 16th through August 18th, PSYCHO LAS VEGAS 2019 will feature four stages, including the newly renovated Events Center, the iconic House Of Blues, the Mandalay Bay Beach, featuring a wave pool and lazy river, and an old-school Vegas-style Lounge smack dab in the middle of the casino floor. While all of the venues are located on the property, Mandalay Bay is connected by a complimentary tram service that provides easy access to affordable accommodations such as Luxor and Excalibur. Attendees will have access to discounted rates at all of these properties and other MGM hotels and resorts down the Strip.

PSYCHO LAS VEGAS is unmatched in its level of presentation and 2019 promises not only a bigger and better festival but the experience of a lifetime. Anything goes. All bets — aside from the actual ones in the casino — are off. And if you think you knew what to expect, you’ve obviously never made the trip. Heralded as the vacation destination for those who worship all that is rock ‘n’ roll, PSYCHO LAS VEGAS’ move to Mandalay Bay is a monumental milestone in the growth of the event. The resort is one of the crown jewels of MGM Resorts International and is home to over 3,000 affordable rooms, nine bars and lounges, and 24 restaurants. Occupying 120 lush acres of land on the Strip, the world-class property defines grandeur in every sense of the word while still providing a sense of seclusion that is necessary for the PSYCHO-takeover that fans have come to expect. Make no qualms about it, PSYCHO LAS VEGAS 2019 will usher in a new era of spectacle, performance, and production.

The highly coveted “Psycho Special” passes, notorious for selling out instantly, are priced at $99, plus taxes and fees and go on sale Thursday, November 29th at 10:00am PST. Weekender General Admission passes are priced at $249, plus taxes and fees, and will increase to $299, plus taxes and fees, once the first tier sells out. Only 300 High Roller VIP passes will be sold at $499, plus taxes and fees, with package details to be announced in December. Single-day tickets will be available in the Spring at $109, plus taxes and fees. While the festival format will remain largely the same as previous years, the Thursday pre-party at DAYLIGHT Beach Club will be a more intimate event for attendees and will require a separate ticket from the festival pass. Tickets and more information will be available at
