Hailed as one of the best heavy lineups ever put together for an American festival Psycho Las Vegas is the metal scene’s Bonnaroo. The Las Vegas Review Journal celebrated the festival’s, “communal, come-as-you-are vibe,” furthering, “the whole weekend had the feel of a heavy-metal family gathering meets The Big Lebowski; a laid-back get-together with an ensemble cast of far-out characters, from gray-haired dudes in Captain Beefheart T-shirts to Yeti-shaggy heavy-metal epicureans.” Noisey concurred hailing Psycho for fulfilling, “every hesher’s fantasy of wandering around the Hard Rock Hotel And Casino stoned out of your mind while alternating between gambling, getting wasted, smoking cigarettes indoors, eating Mexican food, flaunting tattoos, and, of course, watching a seemingly endless onslaught of metal bands perform.”

Lineup: King Diamond, Mastodon, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Gojira, Neurosis, Swans, Carcass, Murder City Devils, Sleep, Ace Frehley, Corrosion of Conformity, Chelse Wolfe, Melvins, Slo Burn, Diamond Head, Manilla Road, Magma, Cirith Ungol, Mulatua Astatke, Abbath, Wolves in the Throne Room, Sumac, Eathless, Cult of Luna with Julie Christmas, Psychic TV, Celeste, Windhand, Pelican, Weedeater, Myrkur and more
