PZYK 2021 — 15 May 2021

PZYK IS DEAD. LONG LIVE PZYK.
It is with great sadness we are today announcing the cancellation of PZYK 2021.

Despite the positive vaccination news, we still have no certainty as to whether it will be feasible to host the festival in May 2021. With months of continued planning ahead to realise PZYK 2021, we do not have the luxury of waiting until the spring before making a decision as to whether we can welcome our congregation to Liverpool in May.
We appreciate that people travel from around the world to visit the festival and out of respect we want to provide clarity as soon as possible.
We were incredibly excited about presenting the festival at a new venue and we have made the decision to cancel with a heavy heart.
We look forward to a point in the future when COVID-19 is but a distant nightmare and we can come together once more.
Refunds will be processed automatically by our ticketing partner Eventim on Monday 30th November.
All original tickets remain valid for the re-arranged date. If you have any further ticketing enquiries, please contact Eventim here.

Yours in drone, always.

PZYK 2020 LINE-UP

Welcome to the new PZYK reality

Following a nine-month gestation, the mysteriously monikered PZYK 2020 finally comes blinking into the daylight. The new incarnation – and ultimate realisation – of what was formerly known as Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia, PZYK 2020 is a continuous, 16-hour immersive journey through sites and sounds of future psychedelia.

What was previously a hedonistic marathon has been reimagined as a distilled affirmation. A Technicolor transformation that will provide the ultimate re-tox; the first 16 hours of the rest of your life…

PZYK 2020 will be housed within a complex of interconnected, industrial recesses in and around Liverpool’s Invisible Wind Factory. Leading the line-up are Grammy-nominated, Anatolian fuzz-purveyors ALTIN GÜN and AGRROcultural PUNKTRONICA oddballs SNAPPED ANKLES.

They are joined by Lancaster’s finest lo-fi psych-punk collective THE LOVELY EGGS and the physical, anthemic force of nature that is BLACK COUNTRY, NEW ROAD. The recipients of Piccadilly Records’ Album of the year, W. H. LUNG, and the much-lauded VANISHING TWIN also join our interstellar soiree.

As ever, PZYK is a celebration of our collective oneness. No matter the boundaries bestowed upon us, ours is a cross-border collective, a blissed-out international communion. Niger’s KEL ASSOUF melts Tuareg trance into a Moon-Duo-esque energy hit; Hong Kong’s GONG GONG GONG 工工工 utilise heavy garage and distortion to channel the anger of a people; YĪN YĪN (Maastricht) and Helsinki’s KAUKOLAMPI (i.e. Timo of K-X-P fame) add to this borderless silo of joyful international energy.

Iconic underground Boston legends SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN are joined by Black Dice’s ERIC COPELAND who, along with JACKIE LYNN, cement a characteristically heavy Stateside anchor at PZYK 2020.

Kavus Torabi, Michael York and Steve Davis (yes, that one) present THE UTOPIA STRONG, a bold forward stride into the unknown for Romford’s finest. As is the newly-unleashed, gorgeously-sinister alter ego of Happy Valley actress KEELEY FORSYTH – the “new Scott Walker” according to The Guardian.

The line-up is completed with LOS BITCHOS, FREE LOVE, WAX MACHINE, PREGOLBIN, DO NOTHING, BONNACONS OF DOOM, ADULT ENTERTAINMENT, NUHA RUBY RA, STARLIGHT MAGIC HOUR, TVO and DJ FITZ.
