    Re: Levitation / Austin Psych Fest 2016

    Vancouver festival announced it's moving to a (much smaller) indoor venue. No reason given. The weather doesn't seem like it will be much of a problem, a little rain perhaps.

    From what I understand Live Nation took over the booking in 2014, hence the drastic lineup change from headliners like Queens of the Stoneage and Vampire Weekend to Bruno Mars, Eminem and Arcade Fire.

    It's the same price per day when you factor in the exchange rate. Tickets are just a hair under $70 US per day in Austin and $67 US per day for the Vancouver one.
