    Posted: February 05 2008 at 18:04

Welcome to a new initiative I am very proud to introduce to the Events forum! I have collated a rolling calendar, including the basic details of many of North America’s (Canada, U.S & Mexico) premier, annual Prog festivals, together with a weblink to their respective homepages, and ‘Myspace’ pages.

It is my intention that this list will be continually added to and updated as an ongoing process, in order that it might become a reliable and comprehensive ‘one-stop’ source of information on all Prog festivals throughout North America during the year.

In order for this to succeed of course, it goes without saying that I will need the help of you all. Firstly, despite the wonderful aid of the Worldwide Web, I am sure you will understand that not being a resident of North America, I am not at all familiar with your festival scene. It is consequently almost certain that I have missed out the details of a great festival near to you, so I would therefore be most grateful if you could add a post to this thread, with full details.

Secondly, many of the initial festivals listed are for more mainstream Prog, as opposed to RIO/ Avant Garde/ Kraut/ Canterbury and so on. Whilst I apologise for this omission, I would also be grateful if fans could post relevant details, below, to enable me to construct a more comprehensive festival guide.

Many thanks to you all, and Best Wishes

Jared

* Update *
 
Notice of Suspension of Calendar Updates
 
I have decided to stop the regular updates of these Calendars for the time being.  You can still find out the latest dates, line-ups and festival details by clicking on the links provided, within the post below this one.  It is hoped that in due course, Prog festivals information will be transferred to the front page, where it should receive greater exposure and become more of an asset.
 
In the meantime, if you feel you would like to take on the role of updating this calendar every couple of weeks, then please either PM myself or one of the Admin Team, to this end.  I thank you for the support and interest you have shown over the past 12 months.
 
Jared

Are you a Festival Organiser?

Help Us To Help You!

You could help us by providing our members with brief, regular updates on festival details, bands booked etc, by starting a thread, and adding to it, as news comes in. Naturally, the more often your thread is added to, the higher the festival’s profile will become as it is bumped up the page.

After the event, we would love you to either post a review or provide a Weblink, which in turn may attract more attendees next year!

 
You can gain some additional exposure by becoming PA's MySpace friend!
 
 
and we'll be happy to add your event!
 
 
ProgArchives is a keen supporter of Prog Festivals, Worldwide!

hopefully Raff will here in August.. if so... we just might make it to Chapel Hill for ProgDay. She'd love it there... beautiful place for a prog festival.  Shame I can't sprout wings and make it out to BajaProg to meet you Guillermo. That is a HELL of line-up.  Say Hi to Aldo for me.. see if he rememebers the crazy American from the Padova show last year LOL

Jared, you can add Fish and Koenjihyakkei to the Nearfest lineup (there'll also be Morglbl which will be added to PA in fusion; also Radio Massacre Intl. will be there).

I certainly will do, Assaf...Wink
 
the idea is that I will visit each festival's website every few weeks and make any updates to confirmed bands, as a consequence...but I'm more than happy for you to all help me out with tip offs...Clap
 
Thank you one and all for the kind comments about both the threads, and if you have any further suggestions, please keep them coming....Big%20smile

Hey, awesome thread!  Another festival to add is the Bay Area Rock Festival (BARfest), which started last year.  Spock's Beard, Zero Hour, Jon Oliva's Pain, Enchant, Crimson Glory, etc. played.  There hasn't been any news yet for this year though.  http://www.bayarearockpromotions.com/

Also, CalProg just announced Echolyn...

Thank you Adrienne, both for your kind comments and your suggestions...Clap
 
re BARfest, I am aware of the event which took place last year, but have as yet found nothing for 2008, which is why it hasn't been added...I do check occasionally, and will add it if they do anything...Wink
 
re the rest of the festivals, I checked all their websites last saturday, and do so every fortnight or so for updates...I will certainly include your Calprog info in the next roundup...Smile

Great job. Clap  I forgot this thread was added and I posted about Calprog in the new thread.  Anyway I have been wanting since I have been on this site (May 2004)  for progfest links and updates.  Is this apperaing on the front page because it should.
