PZYK 2021 — 15 May 2021

Due to the current uncertainty around the Covid-19 situation in the UK, we have no choice but to re-schedule PZYK to 15 May 2021.
We’re massively disappointed to have to make this switch, and have been considering various different alternatives over the past 10 days. Having looked at all new date options from autumn onwards, and in consultation with our venues, the most suitable (and safest) option is to postpone the festival until 2021. This means we can also utilise the same spaces and make PZYK the best experience possible for everyone.
We are working closely with all artists and their schedules to ensure as many of them as possible can join us for the re-scheduled date. We will make a further announcement regarding the line-up and any new additions in the coming months.
All original tickets remain valid for the re-arranged date. If you would like a refund, please contact Eventim here.

Stay safe, stay #PZYK – and see you in 2021.

GONG GONG GONG 工工工

工工工 (Gong Gong Gong) is a rhythm-oriented guitar and bass boogie unit. The group was formed in Beijing in 2015 by Tom Ng of famed Hong Kong band The Offset: Spectacles and Joshua Frank of wild post-punk brother duo Hot & Cold. Both have been active in Beijing’s underground music scene for a decade.

Gong Gong Gong reshapes and deconstructs blues, rock n’ roll, and folk storytelling, using repetition and percussive playing techniques to draw out “phantom rhythms” between instruments. Guitar strumming becomes a snare-and-cymbal pulse, and bass melodies are punctuated with muted low-end roar. Meticulously structured but also untethered and raw, Gong Gong Gong’s sound draws inspiration from Bo Diddley, Minimalism, and psychedelic transnational blues from West Africa to Southeast Asia.
