Stewart Lee curates stage at Brighton Psych Fest

Comedian and music fanatic Stewart Lee will curate a stage at Brighton Psych Fest on Friday, August 30th.

The festival will take over some of Brighton's most iconic venues in a celebration of all things psychedelic.

The Horrors, Holly Macve, NewDad, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Scaler, bdrmm, Divorce, and Molly Payton are among the acts confirmed.

Stewart Lee has selected five artists to appear at Komedia: The Bevis Frond, The Physics House Band, Alison Cotton, Eliza Skelton, and Secluded Bronte.

Lee said: "Brighton Psych Fest asked me to host and program a stage, which is reckless of them as the last thing I curated, the 2016 Prestatyn All Tomorrow’s Parties, went bust. And no, I didn’t get paid either. Nonetheless, here’s a mind-melting day out of acid-hued action from five of my favourite acts, with minimal onstage interruptions from me."

He added: "I’ve tried to skew the selection towards Brighton and Hastings talent because sometimes we don’t always acknowledge the geniuses on our own doorsteps."
