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

THE UTOPIA STRONG

The Utopia Strong are a semi-modular trio, delivering medical grade music to the visionary music head. The band were born on the evening of 2nd January 2018 after what can only be described as an experimental and revelatory improvised session together. Kavus Torabi, Michael York and Steve Davis have fused modular synthesisers with conventional and traditional instruments to create a weird and joyous celebration of all that is good about leftfield psychedelic music.

Kavus Torabi is an experimental/psychedelic musician with a long history in the field. He has his own band, Knifeworld and is frontman in the current line-up of Gong. He runs the boutique record label, Believers Roast, has collaborated with a wide range of left-field artists and co-presents a show on NTS Radio with Steve Davis, a show championing new, experimental, avant-garde, far out, underground, electronic, pop, folk, psych, rock and classical music.

Six-time snooker World Champion Steve Davis has shelved his snooker punditry duties in recent years to devote more time to collecting left field music from around the globe, and playing the modular synth. Davis contributes this to The Utopia Strong, while multi-instrumentalist and luthier Michael York works mainly with modular/analogue synths and woodwinds (primarily focusing on bagpipes, reeds and flutes of Europe and the Near East).

The trio’s self-titled debut LP on Rocket Recordings in 2019 was hailed as “a modular-driven kosmische colossus of transcendent power” by Rough Trade.
