Paris International Festival of Psychedelic Music

While the summer sees a huge number of big budget festivals with big names across France, like
elsewhere, there are also a huge number of smaller boutique events catering for specialist tastes of every type.

One such event is the Paris International Festival of Psychedelic Music, an event running from Today until Sunday in the French capital.

It's the second time that the event's been held, and this year sees acts including The Horrors, Clinic and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

While it's a international event, the contemporary French psych acts are represented with the likes of Jessica 93.

There are also film screenings and DJ sets.

Psychedelia has since the 60s proved to be both an enduring and fertile area of music, and it has continued to adapt over the decades, from the garage rock of the mid 60s to the West Coast US hippies, to their more modern descendants continuing to push forward the frontiers.

As the festival organisers say: "This musical scene has always kept exporting and developing, but today a true artistic renewal is giving to psyche a previously unseen extent."

The festival is being held at multiple venues including Le Trianon, La Machine du Moulin Rouge and  La Gaite Lyrique.

More details are available on the event's website.
