Quelques nouvelles de GONG lors de la "Gong Family Unconvention Weekend" ont fait état de la possibilité de retrouver la formation originelle du groupe sur scène (Daevid Allen, Steve Hillage, Tim Blake, Didier Malherbe et autres) en 2006 ! Voici le texte officiel :

Chris Hannam (on behalf of the Promoters) said "Gong have a long history with De Melkweg going back to the early 70s, it's location, facilities and atmosphere offer just what is require for this event".
One of the event night's entertainment has been programmed by Steve Hillage who said: "This event is not a reunion or a farewell, after all Gong was never formed in the first place so they could never break up and have been and always will be together in terms of energy".
