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.

SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN return to the UK and Europe, in full force, for the first time in 13 years. Hailed by Wire Magazine as the forbearers of the ‘New Weird America’ movement, Sunburned have been operating as a spontaneous psychedelic rock/free music performance unit since 1994 (originally as Boston psychedelic punk trio Shit Spangled Banner). Their current, core unit returns to the UK made up of its founders John Moloney and Rob Thomas, with Ron Schneiderman (sunburned since 2003), Shannon Ketch, Mark Perretta (Deluxx Folk Implosion) and John Godbert (Vibracathedral Orchestra / Herb Diamante).

They have shared bills and its members have worked with a wide variety of artists including: Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Gary War, Mission of Burma, Six Organs of Admittance, Sunn O))), Acid Mother’s Temple, Steve Gunn, Sun City Girls, Bill Nace, Paul Flaherty, Bardo Pond, and Four Tet, with whom they have collaborated on two LPs.

They release records on various labels, as well as a number of smaller labels, and produce a great number of limited edition albums on CDr via their own Manhand label. SHOTM continued to refine and expand their sound on CD-R and vinyl-only releases such as 2001’s ‘Wild Animal’, 2002’s ‘Headdress’ and 2003’s ‘Trickle Down Theory of Lord Knows What’. Each release was a rough but often brilliant indicator of where the band was headed, rather than finished statements of where they had been.
