Taking place on Saturday 16th May 2020, the new PZYK Festival from the creators of Liverpool Psych Fest is 16 hours of immersive psychedelia housed within a complex of interconnected, industrial recesses in and around Liverpool’s Invisible Wind Factory.
Leading the line-up are Grammy-nominated, Anatolian fuzz-purveyors Altin Gun, and AGRROcultural PUNKTRONICA oddballs Snapped Ankles, Lancaster’s finest lo-fi psych-punk collective The Lovely Eggs, the force of nature that is Black Country, New Road, W.H. Lung, and Vanishing Twin.
From around the world there's Niger’s Kel Assouf who melts Tuareg trance into a Moon-Duo-esque energy hit; Hong Kong’s Gong Gong Gong III who utilise heavy garage and distortion to channel the anger of a people; there's Yin Yin from Maastricht, and Helsinki’s Kaukolampi (K-x-p) (i.e. Timo of K-X-P fame); there's Boston's Sunburned Hand Of The Man, Black Dice’s Eric Copeland, and Jackie Lynn.
Kavus Torabi, Michael York and Steve Davis (yes, that one) present The Utopia Strong, a bold forward stride into the unknown for Romford’s finest. As is the newly-unleashed, gorgeously-sinister alter ego of Happy Valley's Keeley Forsyth - the “new Scott Walker” according to The Guardian. The line-up is completed with Los Bitchos, Free Love, Wax Machine, Pregoblin, Do Nothing, Bonnacons of Doom, Adult Entertainment, Nuha Ruby Ra, Starlight Magic Hour, TVO, and DJ Fitz.
Tickets are on sale, currently priced at £55.
Note: 18+ only
