IMPORTANT FESTIVAL INFORMATION
We are excited beyond belief to bring you LIVERPOOL INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF PSYCHEDELIA 2017, our two-day head music happening, held this weekend, 22 + 23 September 2017 within the warehouses and recesses of Camp and Furnace, Blade Factory and District in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle. See the latest information on our amazing PZYK 2017 line-up and stage times HERE – and download the official festival app (for free) for up to date festival information.
NB: Due to unforeseen circumstances outside of our control, we have had to rearrange some of the programming for the festival today. Gulp will no longer be playing their slot PZYK 2017. Performing in their place on Saturday 23 September on the Camp stage (15:30-16:00) will be lysergic Scouse wigout merchants The Floormen.
Unfortunately, Patten will also no longer be performing at PZYK 2017. Performing in their place on Saturday 23 September on the District stage (00:30-01:15) will be Liverpool garage noiseniks Strange Collective.
There have also been some changes to the Musings In Drone programme: Castle Face Records’ In Conversation with The Quietus has now been cancelled. The timings for this programme are now at 16:00 (AUDINT present A Century Of Zombie Sound), 17:00 (The Black Angels In Conversation) and 18:00 (W.I.T.C.H In Conversation).
All amends to the line-up have been updated in the festival app. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We look forward to welcoming all acts back to our PZYK Congregation in the future.
To make sure your enjoyment of the festival is as smooth as possible, we’ve included some important festival information for you here.
WRISTBAND EXCHANGE + BOX OFFICE
Wristband Exchange and Box Office will be located on Flint Street, parallel to District (MAP). Leave Jamaica Street via Jordan Street and you will find Wristband Exchange and Box Office at the intersection between Jordan Street and Flint Street. This is the only entrance to the festival site: access will not be granted via Greenland Street or New Bird Street. Access to the festival site will only be granted with an official festival wristband.
+ Friday 22 September: Wristband Exchange will be open from 1pm with the festival site open at 3pm.
+ Saturday 23 September: Wristband Exchange will be open from 12pm with the festival site open at 1pm. DJs are on until late on both nights after the live music has finished.
Full location and travel details can be found HERE.
+ Each of the performance spaces at Liverpool Psych Fest has fixed capacities. For certain artists these capacities may be reached and a one-in-one-out system introduced. Like at any event with multiple venues, if there are particular artists you’d definitely like to see, please make sure you are in the relevant performance space in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.
+ In order to safely mange the audience numbers on site at peak times, final entry to the site on both Friday 22 and Saturday 23 September will be 9.30pm. This measure is intended to help us safely manage crowds at these speaks times and we appreciate your help and understanding.
+ After successfully implementing it last year, we are once again using a bar token system for this year’s festival. Attendees can purchase tokens at the Token Booth and redeem them at any of the bars on site. This will drastically reduce queuing times across all of the bars and will ensure you spend more time enjoying the festival and less time queuing. The Token Booth is located directly opposite the main entrance on Flint Street. Tokens can be purchased with card or cash (card payments subject to small transaction charge).
+ The Baltic Triangle is something of a cashpoint blackhole and though we will have a cashback point on site and cards can be used to purchase bar tokens (subject to small transaction charge), for ease we would encourage festival goers to bring cash to the site. Liverpool city centre has all major international banks and hundreds of cash machines.
+ Due to the nature of recent events – and to ensure everyone’s safety – all bags will be searched upon entry. To avoid delays, please factor this when arriving at the festival site.
+ Strobes are in use in various venues across the site.

ZERO BAR WASTE TO LANDFILL | GREEN CUP SCHEME
In 2016, we sent 24 tonnes of cups and bar waste to landfill. This wasn’t good for anyone, least of all the planet we all share.
This year we are using a green cup scheme, and aim to send no bar waste to landfill. That’s 0 tonnes. And Mother Earth is stoked.
To achieve this, we are charging a small fee (£1) for a cup with your first drink, which you can exchange at the end for a deluxe, PZYK-branded festival cup.
We thank you for working with us to achieve this.
We know how important refreshment is to our PZYK audience, which is why we’re happy to announce that we’ll be joined by a different brewery on each of our 7 festival bars this year. Each bar will be stocked with a range of tasty morsels – from the cask and in cans – to suit all preferences (many of which are vegan friendly). Here’s a taster of what to expect:
+ Five Points Brewing Co. (Furnace): An independent brewery from Hackney whose Pale, Porter and XPA specialities are sure to go down a storm (all unpasteurised and unfiltered to maintain the finest taste).
+ North Brewing (Camp): As renowned pioneers of the British craft beer scene, North Bar have been providing superior ales since 1997. Look out their award-winning headliner Transmission, named ‘Best IPA in 2017’.
+ Black Lodge Brewery (Blade Factory): Black Lodge Brewing is a fast moving, small batch-brewery based in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle. They cooked up 2016’s sumptuous festival brew, Guruguru Brain IPA.
+ Innis & Gunn (Lobby): These Scottish brewers have become famed for their stylish range of award-winning, full-flavoured beers which have made them popular across Europe and North America.
+ Lagunitas (Camp Exterior): Famed for their irreverent takes on beer classics, these music-loving Californians are one of the biggest-selling craft breweries in the world.
+ H1780 Tap & Still (Greenland Street Exterior): With their trademark Love Lane pale ale leading the way (fresh, light and fruity, brewed using the finest American hops), H1780 bring a variety of tastes to PZYK.
+ PZYK (District + PZYK Gallery): Stocking the festival’s specially brewed PZYK Lager and PZYK Cider, these bars will definitely destroy you. PZYK Kocktailz are also served in the first floor PZYK Gallery.
