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.



We’re delighted to be bringing you an extra PZYK treat this year, in the form of a one-off show from acid-fried Aussie psych geniuses POND. The troupe appear at Invisible Wind Factory in Liverpool on Saturday 26th August, hot off the heels of latest album ‘The Weather’.
The Perth-based four-piece, led by Nick Allbrook, have channelled their trademark cosmic wig-outs into a concise, sharp set of psych magic on their sixth LP, earning an 8/10 rating from Uncut. “Like The Flaming Lips at their best, ‘The Weather’ finds them anchoring their sillier musical excessed with solid pop tunes and heartfelt existential concerns.”
The show on 26 August marks 27 days before PZYK 2017 proper, which we are celebrating as the 27 Days To Destruction launch for this year’s festival, with this huge show and a series of activities at Bold Street Coffee earlier in the day.
Joining Pond on the night are machine-funk-krautadelia duo WARM DIGITS (whose new LP ‘Wireless World’ was 6Music’s Album Of The Day in August) and the soulful guitar dreamery of CHRIS FORSTYH AND THE SOLAR MOTEL BAND. Audio oracle Bernie Connor will also be on duty on the wheels of steel throughout the night.
Tickets are on sale now from SeeTickets.
