Eindhoven Psych Lab is a festival run in the Netherlands every June. Psych Lab puts a strong emphasis on electronic and psychedelic music with a further extent on visual flair, with the festival's website featuring a host of kaleidoscopic animations to compliment the sounds presented. Eindhoven Psych Lab also presents marquee shows at Effenaar featuring the likes of Follakzoid, White Hills, Moon Duo and Acid Mothers Temple among others.
