Hosted at Komedia, the stage will see performances from five artists who have been personally selected by Lee.A post shared by Brighton Psych Fest (@brightonpsychfest)“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 said of the collaboration.He also added how he has turned his sights to local talent, with the hopes of having festival goers realise what talented musicians are rising in the area. “I’ve tried to skew the selection towards Brighton and Hastings talent,” he explained. “Because sometimes we don’t always acknowledge the geniuses on our own.
