Great you could go, I didn't make up my mind. I only wish Steve Hackett would go to Mexico City at least... I haven't seen him schedule a concert there, but he's on a world tour, he should make Mexico City a place to stop by. I've also had the fantasy that Anglagard may go play at the Cervantino. Highly unlikely, of course.

What a great show it was!  

Hackett was amazing, as were Anglagard and Three Friends. Crimson Project was a bit too loud for me (and I wasn't the only one), but still good.

 I was also really impressed with Galahad (though they looked like they were suffering from the outdoor heat) and Luz de Riada--bands I had never heard.  Unfortunately missed the last day.

I'll post a couple excellent pics as soon as I can get them off my phone.

Too bad you missed a great show with Eddie Jobson.  His band was made up of first class musicians, and they played music from Zinc even!

would liked to have seen it, but oh well, there's always the future.  Also failed to mention I saw the New Trolls--also never had heard them and was impressed with their show.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Gnu Quartet confirmed in Baja Prog 2014 line-up.

It’s now official, the Italian based revolutionary quartet of talents (Roberto Izzo violin, Raffaele Rebaudengo viola, Stefano Cabrera cello, Francesca Rapetti flute) will be active part of Baja Prog Festival 2014.

Gnu Quartet will perform alongside with Cast (Mexican prog band) on April 4th and their own set on April 5th both on main stage Colonial Hotel in Mexicali.

The quartet from Genoa, Italy, will celebrate the 7th year of activity, a constellation of music experiences that brought them to play with all major national musicians and appear on prestigious stages such as Stadiums and Main Festivals in Italy.

Versatile and unpredictable musicians, Gnu Quartet are the real challenge for this future Baja Prog. Classical instruments making Progressive sounds and music architecture. That explains why they were chosen by PFM and NEW TROLLS to collaborate at several Italian progressive music projects.

Roberto Izzo, violin of Gnu Quartet, will be performing for the third edition in a row, after 2 very successful appearance in 2008 and 2013 as first violin and orchestra director with NEW TROLLS Concerto Grosso that impressed the Baja Prog international audience.

For their live set, Gnu Quartet are preparing a set list with own original composition and some high impact “GNU STYLE” revisited Prog hits, whose titles are kept very secret at the moment.

So, after participating to Jazz, Instrumental Pop and Classic festivals, the Gnu Quartet manage to close this circle by landing to the biggest Prog event in the world.

GNU QUARTET are:

Roberto Izzo, Violin

Raffaele Rebaudengo, Viola

Stefano Cabrera, Cello

Francesca Rapetti, Flute

Haken,   PFM,  Museo Rosenbach,  Fish,  Neal Morse,  Spock's Beard,  Osanna,  Moon Safari   etc.

Wow!  I've just decided to go again.

.  This was seriously one of the best festival/concerts I've ever been to last year and the lineup this year is just as good.  I like the night performances better--wish Haken were night, but oh well, I'm sure they'll be just as awesome in the daytime venue as well.

Incidentally, I booked a double room at a cheaper motel about 1 mile from the day venue (it was all they had left). If anyone thinks they might want to go, and are by themselves, send me a message and maybe we can work out a share. Room is non-smoking.   Thanks

Again a great festival this year! A few sound glitches, but excellent overall, (however punishing to my eardrums)

I thought the very best performaces were by PFM, the Gnu Quartet, Haken, Felix Martin, and Shylock.

Fish, Moon Safari, Museo Rosenbach,  Neal Morse, and Spock's beard were also very good (Esp the drumming--Mike Portnoy was amazing). 

I missed Moraine, and part of Osanna but some of the others I'd never heard gave decent performances: Frak's Lead costume was cool/bizarre, and t'was nice to see female vocalists with IO Earth and Elora.

If you've never been, and live in So. Cal or other nearby place, this festival is worth going to!

Agreed, Museo Rosenbach and Shylock were mindblowing, and seeing PFM live was excellent; great edition this 2014.
