Psycho Las Vegas 2019 Announces the Original Misfits to Headline

Well, we already knew that if anyone on earth was going to go big, it was going to be Psycho Las Vegas, and they’ve done just that. In replacing Megadeth, they’ve tapped the original Misfits for a reunion set as their final-announced headliner, joining Corrosion of Conformity at the pool party as well as Electric Wizard and Opeth at the festival proper. It’s a major fucking addition, and as far as I’m concerned, looking at that group of bands, it puts Psycho well in that next league of festivals that the venue change this year and the lineup overall seems to have been driving toward. This shit is going to be massive — a gargantuan party on the Strip, and while I don’t think the planet has much that the Strip hasn’t seen, I honestly can’t think of something else that would compare to this. Get ready for a whole different kind of rat pack.

I don’t think I’m making it to Psycho this year, but if you’re going, here’s why I won’t even attempt to hide my envy, courtesy of the PR wire:

PSYCHO LAS VEGAS 2019: The Original Misfits Added As Saturday Headliner To Already Stacked Lineup; Tickets On Sale Now

The curators of PSYCHO LAS VEGAS played their final hand for the 2019 lineup, welcoming The Original Misfits to this year’s monolithic, three-day, four-stage lineup set to take over Mandalay Bay Resort And Casino From August 16th – 18th. Featuring original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only, along with early guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, the legendary horror-punk trailblazers/modern-metal pioneers will headline Saturday’s events, taking the place of Megadeth who recently cancelled much of their remaining 2019 tour schedule following singer/guitarist Dave Mustaine’s recent throat cancer diagnosis.

Notorious for delivering diverse and eclectic lineups, PSYCHO LAS VEGAS 2019 will also feature headlining sets from Electric Wizard, and Opeth as well as performances from some of metal and rock’s most esteemed artists including High On Fire, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Bad Religion, Yob, Goatwhore, Clutch, Carcass, Triumph Of Death, Old Man Gloom, Oranssi Pazuzu, Mogwai, Power Trip, Amenra, Deafheaven, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, and dozens more!

Additionally, PSYCHO LAS VEGAS will host a special all-day pool party August 15th to kick off the mayhem. Set to take place at Daylight Beach Club nestled next to the Mandalay Bay Resort And Casino, the fittingly-monikered Psycho Swim features sets from Corrosion Of Conformity, Lucifer, Primitive Man, and more. See the full PSYCHO LAS VEGAS day-to-day lineups below.

The coveted “Psycho Special” passes and “High Roller VIP” passes are long sold out, however “Tier 1 Weekender General Admission” passes are still available at $249 but will increase to $299 once the first tier sells out. Single-day tickets priced at $109 are now available.

    The Misfits were one of the worst live bands I’ve ever seen in my life. Mainly just because of Glenn.
