    Festival News: BajaProg Returns for 2013
    Posted by nightowl on Saturday, December 29 @ 17:24:18 PST (701 reads)
    Festival News

    Well, I'll be darned! We take an unplanned, intermittent, sabbtical for nearly ... six months ... and surprising things happened whilst we were gone. None more surprising perhaps to me (your dear editor) than reading that there is going to be a BajaProg this coming April! This is a good surprise, especially for the West Coast prog crowd who are, I'm sure, hoping for another chapter of the CalProg story (though Jim does plan on-off events, but...).

    Anyway, enough editorializing, here's the scoop. April 3 - 6, 2013 in Mexicali, Mexico there will be staged BajaProg 2013. What bands are on the bill? Well, it's a corker, as they say...

    Festival News: The Flower Kings To Perform At RoSFest 2013
    Posted by nightowl on Tuesday, October 30 @ 23:22:24 PDT (699 reads)
    Festival News

    We're pleased to announce that legendary Swedish band The Flower Kings have been signed for the 2013 edition of the Rites Of Spring festival.

    When progressive rock rose from the ashes in the 1990's, the so-called Scandinavian wave of progressive rock bands were among the leading bands that reinvigorated the genre. Not that progressive rock ever died, but for almost 20 years it was a style that wasn't covered by the music press and for music fans the result was that this kind of music disappeared. But in the second half of the 1990's the internet started to grow and progressive rock alongside it. And The Flower Kings were among the most discussed bands on the message boards of old.

    Festival News: RosFest 2013 - The Story So Far....
    Posted by nightowl on Sunday, October 28 @ 12:00:00 PDT (1164 reads)
    Festival News

    Since we've been out of the loop for what seems like forever, but has "only" been four months, we have missed out on sharing with you the band announcements for RoSFest (and I'm sure some for this past September's ProgDay as well). To rectify that oversight, here is the omnibus edition... and while the headline is a Marillion reference, to date, Marillion is not on the bill nor does it suggest anything of the like... all it means is, well, frankly, in addition to Rush (also not on the bill), I've been listening to Marillion... ah, but let me get out of the way and let Fest Organizer George Roldan "take over."

    July 20, 2012: We're happy to announce that Polish band Believe have been signed for the 2013 edition of the Rites of Spring Festival.

    Festival News: Eloy Has Medical Exigency, Must Pull Out Of NEARfest Apocalypse Lineup
    Posted by nightowl on Monday, May 28 @ 14:12:50 PDT (1381 reads)
    Festival News

    "We regret to inform the progressive rock community that the legendary German symphonic prog band Eloy must cancel its planned NEARfest Apocalypse headline appearance due to a serious medical exigency," reported NEARfest on May 24. "Back in March, lead guitarist/singer Frank Bornemann was struck by a delivery van while riding his bicycle. Frank's injuries required surgery, hospitalization, and extensive rehabilitation. Nevertheless Frank was hopeful he could recover in time to perform with Eloy at NEARfest in June. Unfortunately some recent setbacks in his recovery have made this impossible, with doctors verifying that any traveling or gigging could lead to the damage becoming permanent.

    Festival News: Prog Liguria 2012
    Posted by nightowl on Sunday, January 15 @ 18:00:00 PST (697 reads)
    Festival News

    On the 25th of October 2011, the region of Liguria in Italy suffered the fury of a rain storm so fierce that the city of Genoa and the surrounding areas were devastated, causing death and destruction. What remains is the picture of a whole region scarred so deeply it seems impossible that it may ever return to its original beauty.

    One of worlds most beautifull and unique places the "cinque terre" has some areas virtually cancelled from the map.

    As the area surrounding the city of La Spezia is one of the most hit by the storm it has been decided to hold a prog/rock music festival in the city of La Spezia.

    Festival News: OhioProg Cancelled
    Posted by nightowl on Monday, January 09 @ 22:44:02 PST (555 reads)
    Festival News

    While a few days have passed since this news broke, but... here's the official sattement from OhioProg: "OhioProg 2012 turned to crowd funding platform to make tickets available for the 3-day progressive rock festival in an attempt to ensure enough people would attend to cover the costs and expenses of holding such a grand event. The Kickstarter campaign ended on January 2, 2012 with only 60 tickets pledged. A total of around 400-450 tickets pledged at the various levels would have reached the funding goal.

    "The festival adopted Kickstarter’s project criteria in that, it is all-or-nothing funding. So, since the goal was not reached OhioProg 2012 has been canceled. Also, because funding on Kickstarter is all or nothing, all pledges have been automatically canceled.

    Festival News: RoSfest Announces Swedish Band Agents Of Mercy For 2012 Edition
    Posted by nightowl on Wednesday, December 21 @ 00:10:00 PST (683 reads)
    Festival News

    RoSfest is happy to announce that Swedish band Agents of Mercy have been signed as Sunday night headliners for the 2012 edition of the Rites of Spring Festival.

    Initially planned as a solo project by Roine Stolt (guitars, vocals) with Nad Sylvan (vocals, keyboards) asked to contribute guest vocals, the last few years have seen Swedish outfit Agents of Mercy develop into a permanent band project. Lalle Larsson (keyboards, vocals), Jonas Reingold (bass, pedals) and Walle Wahlgren (drums, percussion) have been added to the line-up, and this fivesome have established themselves as an active and increasingly popular presence in the live circuit. In their few years of existence their style has developed too. Initially exploring a lighter-toned, careful Genesis tinged style, their latest CD The Black Forest have seen them expand their sonic palette with darker touches, inspired by acts such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and King Crimson.
