and we have the first announcement for next years festival ..

Please welcome on Friday, 19th July: IQ

IQ were formed in 1981 and are part of the Neo-Prog scene (along with Marillion, Pendragon and others). In the beginning, they were influenced by big prog bands like Yes and Genesis, but quickly developed their own style.
IQ have released 10 studio albums to this date. The last one was "The Road Of Bones" from 2014. The band is currently working on their 11th album, due next spring. This Friday, a 25th anniversary edition of "EVER" will be released.
The band's line-up has been more or less pretty constant throughout their history. Today's line-up consists of Peter Nicholls (vocals), Mike Holmes (guitars, keyboards), Paul Cook (drums), Tim Esau (bass), Neil Durant (keyboards).

Five years after their last performance at Night Of The Prog, the band will finally return to the Loreley in 2019! Please welcome on the rock: IQ

the second announcement came in ...

Please welcome on Saturday, 20th July: t

German multi-instrumentalist, singer, producer and control freak Thomas Thielen is t. He has always been famous for his enigmatic existence in the studio - but now, after 19 years of claiming it was impossible to get t on stage, he's doing it!

t has always been a musician. He was classically educated and during school time his main interest shifted to guitar playing. Today he admits to being a strictly under-average musician with quite a few instruments none of which he is capable of playing properly.

t has always been interested in sound issues. His music has always been known for its combination or resonating melodies, avatgarde soundscaping and strangely natural sounding odd metres.

A new album is set for a 2019 release.

The live-band consits of Thomas Thielen (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Jan Steiger (guitars), Dominik Hüttermann (keyboards), Yenz Strutz (bass) and Thomas Nussbaum (drums).

t will perform for the first time on the rock on Saturday, 20th July 2019 - so please welcome: t!

and here's the next announcement:

Please welcome on Saturday, 20th July: Karcius!

Karcius are from Montreal, Canada and were formed in 2001. They create a unique style of fusion with elements from Rock, Pop, African, Classical, Jazz and Ambiant music. The band released five albums to date and their latest one, "The Fold", has just been released some weeks ago and surely is their most powerful album to date and a contender for the best Prog Album of 2018.

The band's line-up is: Simon L'Espérance (guitars), Thomas Brodeur (drums), Sébastien Cloutier (keys), Sylvian Auclair (bass, vocals)

We are proud to have Karcius on board next year. The band will perform for the first time on the rock on Saturday, 20th July 2019 - so please welcome: Karcius!

next announcement, that will please the italian visitors for sure:

NIGHT OF THE PROG 2019 OFFICIAL

Please welcome on Sunday, 21st July: RanestRane!

RanestRane (that means “Strange Frogs”) is an Italian progressive rock band formed in Rome in 1998. The band writes progressive style music and concept albums inspired by art films such as "Nosferatu the Vampyre" by W. Herzog, "The Shining" and "2001: A Space Odyssey" by Stanley Kubrick. The "A Space Odyssey’s trilogy" features guest appearances from Steve Rothery and Steve Hogarth, guitarist and frontman of Marillion respectively.

RanestRane’s most distinctive feature is its live performance: the band composes and performs original lyrics and music, blending them with short excerpts from the movie, projected in the background. The original score is almost entirely replaced by the new soundtrack. The band re-elaborates the art film, thus producing a real Rock Opera.

The vocal parts featuring original lyrics are intertwined with fragments of the film dialogues, so creating a new approach to the way spectators experience the film screening.

Their most recent album "A Space Odyssey – Final Part – Starchild" has been presented live during the first RanestRane Weekend (on May 4th-6th in Cervia, Italy). It’s the third part of a trilogy inspired by the Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece "2001: A Space Odyssey". It was officially released on June 6th, 2018.

RanestRane are:
Daniele Pomo – vocals, drums & percussions
Riccardo Romano – keyboards, harp & backing vocals
Maurizio Meo – bass & double bass
Massimo Pomo – acoustic & electric guitars

We are proud to have RanesRane on board next year. The band will perform for the first time on the rock on Sunday, 21st July 2019 - so please welcome: RanestRane!

next announcement, the headliner for Saturday ...

Please welcome our HEADLINER on Saturday, 20th July - one of the most legendary drummers in music history with his new project: NICK MASON's SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS

We are very proud to announce that PINK FLOYD's drummer NICK MASON will be headlining the Saturday, 20th July 2019, at our NIGHT OF THE PROG FESTIVAL on the famous Loreley, Germany.

NICK MASON is the only member of PINK FLOYD who can be heard on every album and every tour. Contrary to his colleagues Roger Waters and David Gilmour, Mason never had much interest in a solo career and has released only three solo albums.
Earlier this year, Mason formed a band, NICK MASON's SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS. The band consists of Spandau Ballet guitarist Gary Kemp (guitars and vocals), guitarist Lee Harris (Blockheads), Guy Pratt on bass (familiar to Pink Floyd fans), composer Dom Beken (keyboards) and of course Nick Mason himself on drums. Nick even got the blessing from both David Gilmour and Roger Waters for this project.

The band has performed a highly successful tour earlier this year and will be out on tour again in 2019 in North America and the UK. Their setlist is a tour-de-force of old Pink Floyd material, as the band's name suggests.
We are proud to have NICK MASON's SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS on board next year.

The band will perform for the first time on the rock on Saturday, 20th July 2019 - so please welcome:
NICK MASON's SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS!

Dilemma, 
The Steve Hillage Band, 
Oak

NIGHT OF THE PROG 2019 OFFICIAL

Please welcome on Friday, 19th July, Dutch/British band DILEMMA!

We are very happy to announce that Dilemma will be performing on Friday, 19th July 2019, during our NIGHT OF THE PROG FESTIVAL on the Loreley, Germany.

Dutch/British melodic and progressive rock act DILEMMA disappeared from the public eye for years, until they came back with a brand new album "Random Act Of Liberation". Their debut album, "Imbroccata", was released way back in 1995. The only new member since their debut is Dec Burke, who joined the band for their new album after their original singer decided to leave the band. The band secretly decided to reset and start over while keep working under the same moniker. Now with a completely rewritten and newly recorded album, and with Dec Burke as their new front man, there’s no question left: DILEMMA is here to stay for the long run and ‘Random Acts Of Liberation’ paves the way for a whole new journey 
DILEMMA recently toured with Sons Of Apollo during their European Tour.

We are looking forward to seeing them perform during our Festival, so please welcome for the first time on the rock on Friday, 19th July 2019: DILEMMA

DILEMMA are
Dec Burke – vocals, guitars
Paul Crezee – guitars
Collin Leijenaar – drums, loops, percussion
Erik van der Vlis – bass
Robin Z – keyboards, grand piano

Please welcome our HEADLINER on Sunday, 21st July - The STEVE HILLAGE Band!

We are very proud to announce that STEVE HILLAGE will perform a special set with The STEVE HILLAGE Band on sunday, 21st July 2019, at our NIGHT OF THE PROG FESTIVAL on the famous Loreley, Germany.

After 40 years, The STEVE HILLAGE Band will be back on stage, performing material from their first four albums. Steve Hillage will use GONG as his backing band. Their performance at Night Of The Prog will be the only Festival show they will do in Europe Mainland in 2019.

Steve Hillage told PROG Magazine / Loudersounds a few days ago: “I haven't yet worked out what songs I am going to do. Some are obvious, and I will also look to feature some deep cuts from these albums. What I could also do is include one or two tracks from later albums like Open (79) and And Not Or (82); remember that last band tour was at the time when Open was released. My aim is to put together a stonking setlist that truly shines.”

The full article is available here:

The band will perform for the first time on the rock on Sunday, 21st July 2019 - so please welcome: The STEVE HILLAGE Band!

Please welcome on Sunday, 21st July - one of the "hottest" bands in Prog- and Artrock Music, from Norway: OAK

OAK's core of Simen Valldal Johannessen on piano and vocals, Øystein Sootholtet on bass, keys and programming and Sigbjørn Reiakvam on drums, keys and programming all come from diverse backgrounds spanning from classical piano to electronica, prog- and hardrock, and includes references to the alternative scene as well as progressive rock. The core takes care of the writing, recording and production of Oaks music. The band is completed with Stephan Hvinden and Ole Michael Bjørndal on guitars and backing vocals.

Their debut album "Lighthouse" was released in 2012. OAK is back with their second album “False Memory Archive”, which, with its nods in the
direction of "Lighthouse", make it a natural continuation of their debut. 
Meticulously crafted, with an increased use of electronics and low bass frequencies, "False Memory Archive" is both darker and groovier than its predecessor, whilst still maintaining that familiar Oak sound, which is neither wholly progressive pop, nor progressive rock, but a happy amalgam of both.

OAK received some great reviews for their latest album, such as:

Progplanet.com:
“What a band..what an album.. they deserve to be huge! Every tune on this album is to die for.....to me it is one of the albums of the year!"

DPRP: 
“It is not very often that I come across an album that is so utterly 
perfect as Oak`s Lighthouse. It is even less often that such an album comes from a band that is all - but - completely unheard of (...) Oak`s music ranges from atmospheric and ethereal, to heavy and melodic. The album flows brilliantly, with the songs often gradually building from quieter moments, to heavier walls of sound.”

We are proud to have OAK on board next year. The band will perform for the first time on the rock on Sunday, 21st July 2019 - so please welcome: OAK!
