Live from Liverpool, England
KFJC × Liverpool Psych Fest
KFJC's Psych crew landed in Liverpool, England to broadcast the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia. This was KFJC's 9th international live remote broadcast, and came in quick succession to KFJC's coverage of the Icelandic Underground the previous weekend.
Friday's Broadcast featured drone pop cosmonauts Fuss; London-based Mass Datura; Stereolab's iconic vocalist Laetitia Sadier; pulverising noise rockers The Telescopes; Brooklyn's stoner rocking Endless Boogie; Swedish sonic explorers Träd, Gräs och Stenar; the Malian Afrobeat/Psych fusion of Songhoy Blues; and psychedelic hypno-trance trailblazers Loop.
Saturday's Broadcast featured far-flung space rock from Dead Vibrations; prepared electric guitars from Ex-Easter Island Head; melodic and jangly The Proper Ornaments; Montreal's Elephant Stone; an excess of both punk and psych from Orange County's Cosmonauts; Californian space rock maximalists White Manna; paganistic prog stylists Wolf People; the dazzling cosmic pop of Jane Weaver; NY scree architects A Place to Bury Strangers; the most popular Zamrockers from the 70's, W.I.T.C.H.; dancy brown acid tweakers Sex Swing; and the subsonic trip of The Black Angels.

A short history of KFJC live remote broadcasts
KFJC has been conducting live remote broadcasts from outside of the San Francisco Bay Area for more than 20 years. KFJC's first out-of-state broadcast was from SXSW in Austin (1994) and the station's first international live remote was from Brixton, England in 1996. In 2000, KFJC volunteers traveled to Dunedin, New Zealand to broadcast 6 nights of live music from the Otago Festival of the Arts.
The station's next international live remote was from Tokyo, Japan in 2008. For that event, KFJC also transmitted its first-ever live four-camera video stream. Additional live broadcasts with video include: Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia (Liverpool, England in 2014 and 2017), Eindhoven Psych Lab (Eindhoven, The Netherlands in 2015, 2016), Surfer Joe Summer Festival (Livorno, Italy in 2016), and Live from the Icelandic Underground (Reykjavik, Iceland in 2017).
