Festival Preview: Levitation Vancouver

Sarah Kue / June 5, 2015
With the ever-expanding, rapidly growing consciousness, it only makes sense LEVITATION is internationally growing. Marking its first year in Vancouver , the festival will be happening at THE MALKIN BOWL, Rickshaw, China Cloud, Electric Owl, and The Cobalt from June 5th-7th. The premiere of LEVITATION in B.C. goes beyond the definition of psych; including a vast array of sounds from soul to grunge.
