Bad Vibrations 2020

COVID may have slowed us down, but rest assured we're coming back

About Us


Our Story

Hello music lover.  

Get ready for a massive concussion of rock'n'roll with 


showcasing all things modulated, reverberated, fuzzed out and delayed.

Established in 2013, Psych Fest Australia has been reborn as BAD VIBRATIONS,  bringing independent psych, punk and garage to the people of Australia!

What Inspires Us


Bad Vibrations believes music is for everyone!  Our commitment to supporting local talent, and building a safe and  inclusive community remains steadfast - our events have always aimed to  lead by example when it comes to gender parity on line ups,  sustainability and safer spaces practices. 

We  reckon that if we can make this happen on a DIY level with a small,  independent team - major festivals and music events can too! Now more  than ever, we need to show the powers that be how important music events  like these are to our community, AND that we can do them right!

2020 Lineup Announce

 Our stacked 2020 lineups are set to be announced soon with more  (including our all ages event) to come! Follow our socials to be sure you're not left out!


Bad  Vibrations recognises the places where we meet as stolen land. We  acknowledge the traditional custodians of these lands, and pay respect  to the Elders past & present. Sovereignty was never ceded. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land
