Australian rocker Courtney Barnett is the big new addition to the Levitation roster with today’s release of daily lineups and single-day tickets, which are now on sale at the festival’s website. The event, formerly known as Psych Fest, runs April 29-May 1 at Carson Creek Ranch.

Barnett, who’s up for Best New Artist at the Grammys in two weeks, is coming off a breakthrough year that included Austin appearances at South By Southwest, where she won the festival’s Grulke Prize for Developing Non-U.S. Act, and a taping of “Austin City Limits.” In 2014, she was a major hit at Fun Fun Fun Fest.
Other acts added include ’90s oddball rockers Ween; the Arcs, a side-project band of Black Keys mastermind Dan Auerbach; David J & the Gentleman Thieves, featuring the former member of Love & Rockets and Bauhaus; and ethereal French pop act Melody’s Echo Chamber. Notable local additions include Golden Dawn Arkestra, Roger Sellers’ Bayonne and Christian Bland & the Revelators. The handful of new names supplement the longer list of previously announced performers, including Brian Wilson, Animal Collective, Lee Scratch Perry and fest hosts the Black Angels.
