Details have yet to be announced, but the buzz machine for this year's Terrastock is officially in gear. This will be the seventh installment of the international underground-psych festival programmed by the venerable Ptolemaic Terrascope zine (which recently passed into American hands). Last year's festival, held in Lovecraft's eerie Providence, was a glorious orgy of psych in every flavo(u)r, and featured Chicago's own Spires That in the Sunset Rise.

Why Terrastock for your out-of-town-festival needs? Well, unlike SxSW or CMJ, it won't issue you a worthless pass. Unlike All Tomorrow's Parties, it won't blind you with hype. And unlike Coachella, it won't give you a heatstroke.
