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

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.
