psychos 40
Australia's Cosmic Psychos have racked up 40 years and will play three very special shows in rural Castlemaine, Victoria - a short stagger from mainman Ross Knight’s farm.

The main shindig takes place at the Theatre Royal on December 1-3 with Cosmic Psychos rounding up all their favourite bands (and some very impressive surprise guests) for a wild weekend down at Knighty’s local. 

In addition to the big bash, there will be more events and parties around town so grab some mates, load the esky and fang it to Victoria’s goldfield country for a big ol’ bender.And, because it’s their anniversary, Cosmic Psychos also want to kick back and enjoy the festivities, so they’ve roped in some very special bands to headline each show.

Friday December 1 will see Sunny Coast punks (and Psychos’ protégé) The Chats heading up a big ol’line up of some of Victoria’s finest: BlowersAffordable Repayments and Dead Clampets featuring Psychos drummer Dean Muller clocking up overtime. 

Saturday December 2 will be headlined by a secret special guest (to be announced), plus some international and interstate guests including The PrizePat Todd (USA)Southeast Desert Metal (NT) and Thee Cha Cha Chas. Psychos guitarist Mad Macka will drag his other band Boondall Boys out of hard rubbish for the celebration.

Sunday December 3 will be headlined by a secret special guest to-be-announced -alongside Brissy trio The Unknowns (featuring members of The Chats), Pat Todd (USA)Meatbeaters (SA) and K5.

Tickets go on sale at 9.30am AEST on August 23.
