We are very pleased to announce the next two bands for this year’s Festival to be held at Lydney Town Hall, Gloucestershire on October 9, 10, 11

Mr So and So
were forerunners of the mid 90s prog scene, before signing to Steve Rothery’s “Dorian Music” label for 1998s The Overlap.  A lengthy hiatus ended two years ago, when the band began recording and gigging again, culminating in new album Sugarstealer.  Already available as a download and due for release on CD later in the year, the album combines modern progressive rock and pop, with the dual vocals of Shaun McGowan and Charlotte Evans combining impressively.

I/O Earth are a remarkable find, having just released a brilliantly assured self titled double album.  The brainchild of British multi-instrumentalists Dave Cureton and Adam Gough, the album combines melodic prog with ambient, classical and world music influences, and features a variety of vocalists including Steve Balsamo (ChimpanA, the Storys).  The 6 piece live version of the band will open the Sunday of the festival on October 11th.

Finally, we are delighted to announce that Official festival photographer Chris Walkden’s superb photos of Summers End 2008 can now be seen at

More information very soon – including more news of headliners and special guests!

Previous bands announced:

Pallas (UK)
Parallel or 90 Degrees (UK)
Quantum Fantay (Belgium)
Godsticks (UK)

Further details of the Festival, including further bands and first news of the weekend schedule will be posted very soon.
