Pzyk Fest has been forced to postpone this year’s event to 2021, in what is becoming an all too familiar pattern, Getintothis’ Peter Goodbody has the details.
One of Liverpool’s best loved festivals, that draws fans from all over the country as well as abroad, it has become clear in the current climate, keeping the 2020 date in May was not feasible.
Happily, however, instead of a complete cancellation, the festival organisers have announced today that Pzyk Fest will be back next year in the Invisible Wind Factory on May 25, 2021.
In a statement issued on the event webpage this evening the organisers said: “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].
“Stay safe, stay #PZYK – and see you in 2021”.
We are yet to see whether next year’s line up can remain the same, or substantially so.
