Montreal’s favourite psych-rock festival, Distorsion, put together by our favourite experimental music label, Mothland, is returning—this time from July 22-24 at Entrepôt 77, a mythical Montreal landmark located in Plateau Mont-Royal. This news comes only weeks after the Distorsion Théâtre Plaza Takeover, which featured bands like The KVB, Celebrity Death Slot Machine, Paul Jacobs, Meggie Lennon, and more. This time, we will witness bands like Toronto’s electronic freaks, Holy Fuck, Texan cosmic avant-garde rockers, Golden Dawn Arkestra, New Brunswick’s experimental art punks, Motherhood, and a slew of other talents.
We’re most excited for the newer Mothland bands, La Sécurité and Grim Streaker, but also the unsigned synth-punks, Crasher. The full lineup will be out June 3 and we are envisioning more lineup surprises.
