PZYK 2015 Announcement #2
We are thrilled to announce a swathe of artists spanning the international PZYK cosmos for LIVERPOOL INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL of PSYCHEDELIA 2015, joining iconic British space-psych pioneers SPIRITUALIZED at the two-day happening, held over 25th + 26th September 2015 within the warehouses and recesses of Camp and Furnace, Blade Factory and District, in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle.
The latest announcement is led by FACTORY FLOOR, THE HEADS and HOOKWORMS, who are also joined by JACCO GARDNER, JANE WEAVER, K-X-P, JOEL GION, KAREN GWYER, DENGUE FEVER, CARLTON MELTON, INDIAN JEWELRY, LUMERIANS and BLACK DEVIL DISCO CLUB, plus a kaleidoscopic swarm of worldly noise-makers. You can find individual artists biographies on all of the acts playing this year’s festival in our Congregation section.
We’re also suitably PZYKed to announce the line-up for the exclusive collaborative curation between two of our most loved labels, Brooklyn’s SACRED BONES RECORDS and Santiago, Chile’s BYM RECORDS. This stage will feature BLANCK MASS, DESTRUCTION UNIT, THE HOLYDRUG COUPLE, CHICOS DE NAZCA, VUELVETELOCA and THE GANJAS.
Organizers are also thrilled to announce that Brian Jonestown Massacre trailblazer ANTON NEWCOMBE will be the festival’s first Artist In Residence. A full programme of Anton’s activities over the festival weekend will be announced in the coming weeks.
Another of the neo-Psych scene’s finest imprints CARDINAL FUZZ will be making the trip to the Baltic triangle, to present CARDINAL FUZZ SONIC ATTACK, a curation of artists from their fabulous drone-laden roster.
The 2015 edition follows last year’s sold-out and critically lauded installment of the festival, which saw Liverpool Psych Fest being named ‘Best Small Festival’ at the 2015 NME Awards.
This year the Baltic Triangle festival site will benefit from an additional performance space, with District – a converted manufacturing facility – joining the existing complex of warehouses across Camp and Furnace, and the Blade Factory. Organisers are also planning a wide expansion of the PZYK Gallery and Village – which were successfully introduced in 2014 – plus the festival’s trademark world of scintillating artist curation from across the PZYK cosmos, DJs, label curations, installations and audiovisual explorations.
Weekend tickets on sale now, priced just £60. You can buy these online here – and weekend tickets are also available in store at Probe Records (Liverpool), Piccadilly Records (Manchester) and Jumbo Records (Leeds).
