PROGFEST is a celebration of musicians creating progressive music.
Featuring bands of all styles and genres, from prog, post, psychedelic, art rock & metal and everything in between, PROGFEST is about showcasing artists who have decided to challenge themselves musically and create music with depth and vision.
After the birth of PROGFEST in Melbourne 2008, the event slowly travelled around the country in 2009 and 2010 with subsequent events taking place in Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Adelaide & Canberra. PROGFEST returns in 2011, showcasing the many remarkable progressive acts this country has to offer, with events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
PROGFEST comes to Sydney on Saturday August 13th at the Annandale Hotel and features a stellar lineup including a rare, unmissable set by highly regarded PVT drummer Laurenz Pike. Pike is joined by one of Australia’s most exciting progressive rock bands, PIRATE, supporting the forthcoming release their debut album ‘Left Of Mind’; and influential post-rock legends MENISCUS, touring on the back of their album ‘War of Currents.’ The event also hosts the album launch for local prog-metallers AVARIN, with a supporting bill including Brisbane’s ARCANE; Melbourne’s BRANCH ARTERIAL; and a cast of some of Sydney’s best post/progressive acts - DUMBSAINT, SOLKYRI, GRUN, WE LOST THE SEA, MISH, SICARIA and SERIOUS BEAK.
