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.

The sparkling synth pop and motorik krautrock of Manchester-based three-piece W. H. LUNG first burst onto the music scene in 2017, with the release of the single ‘Inspiration!/Nothing Is’. Originally conceived as a studio-based project by school friends, Joseph E (vocals, synths), Tom S (guitar), and Tom P (bass), the trio quickly became sought after for live shows and performances off the back of their 2017 debut, playing stages at British festivals including Green Man and End Of The Road.

Drawing their inspiration from the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Talking Heads, Prince and Julia Holter, the three-piece returned to the studio to start work on their debut album. Distilling their influences into the album, the resulting ‘Incidental Music’ was released to critical acclaim in early 2019, preceded by the singles ‘Second Death of My Face’ and ‘Simpatico People’. The record’s synth pop hums and motor grooves earned it the nod from Piccadilly Records, who named it their album of the year in 2019.
