Pretty big festival that takes place in Mexicali, situated right beside Calexico and a few hours from San Diego and Los Angeles.

It's an interesting looking line-up. I've seen most of the bands playing before and can only really afford to fly to one festival a year so unfortunately will have to pass on Baja this year as I'm going to RIO in France.

Hope it's successful as I've heard nothing but good reports and hope to get there in future years if it keeps going.

Not too far away for me to go, but I CANNOT take time off from work on those days.  Dammit!  Angry  There are five bands I would just love to see live (the first five on the list), and several others I wouldn't mind seeing.  The rest would just be gravy.  I hope attendence is good, so that maybe, just maybe, I could attend some other year.

I tried to go every year the last few they were holding this festival.  It is truly a blast!  Expertly run, beautiful theater, and very inexpensive.  I will definitely be going this year and am way too excited right now for the event to be this far away.  Glad to have the festival back.  Here's to many more!

The BajaProg is a very important festival that unfortunately stopped being celebrated for several years, but this 2013 returns with an excellent line-up: the bands that will be presented are very talented, and are great examples of different genres and eras, is a unique festival.

I'm so proud that this festival is in my country, and I'll definitely be there, no matter how far I am from Mexicali, the effort will be worth because is the kind of cultural events to which we can hardly access.

So I recommend you to go to BajaProg to make history again, and this festival continues to live many more years!

I just got the time off to attend this festival! Is this the best forum location  to connect with a fellow prog head to share some expense (ie room,gas)? I will be flying into so. Cal. the weekend before and  I can meet up anywhere down there for the drive into Baja.  Can't wait!

Wow Looks like a great show!

 I want to go for a couple days, but I guess ticket sales online have ended... looks like there are still seats.
 
Does anyone know if I can just get tickets at the venue on Wednesday??     Thanks

Hi,
 
I would not mind seeing this ...
 
With that said, I would like to see more music from TODAY, instead of so many yesterday things ... of all these the only band I would love to see and meet? ... Anglagaard! I don't dislike Jobson or Hackett, but I'm getting tired of them usurping the development of thsoe folks that are around today, trying hard to get some recognition.
 
To me, it is important that these festivals also give creedence to some of the local folks ... to ensure that they also can succeed and live ... a long life like Steve and Eddie have, for example.
 
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

Having seen Hackett last night in LA with a band full of those musicians you say he is usurping their recogniton I can say he just helped all of them.  2.5 hour show 1200 people in attendance.  Baja you are getting a great show coming your way.
