Summers End Festival 2014 announces the return of Magenta

 

We are thrilled to announce that Magenta will make their fourth appearance at the Summers End Festival in 2014, which takes place the Palmer Centre, Chepstow on September 26-28.  Their performance will mark the band’s first full set of music since 2013 following Christina Booth’s recent illness and a brilliant short set at Trinity.  Festival co-promoter Stephen Lambe says:

 

“Magenta were not in our initial plans for the festival for obvious reasons, but we are very pleased to be the first step on what should be a return to normal activity for them.  It is also very appropriate that they should play SE X, having headlined the first event in Gloucester in 2005, and rather neatly keeps up their schedule of playing every 3 years, having also performed for us in 2008 and 2011.”

 

This follows the unfortunate departure of RPWL from the line up due to logistical reasons – we hope to welcome them back to the festival in 2015 instead.

 

With one act high up on the bill still to announce, the line up so far is shown below.  Hero, Sponsor and three day tickets are already available from www.summersend.co.uk .  As soon as the final band is announced, we will put day tickets on sale and announce the day splits.

 

Curved Air (UK)

Magenta (UK)

The United Progressive Fraternity (Aus / UK)

Lifesigns (UK)

DeeExpus (UK)

Touchstone (UK)

Tin Spirits (UK)

Frequency Drift (Germany)

Verbal Delirium (Greece)

Argos (Germany)

Colourflow (UK)

Attractive line-up - would prefer to see more bands from abroad and less "safe" choices, but still a strong setup
"Prog Heavy Petting" show - every Monday 7-9pm UK time on http://www.justincaseradio.com, the first progressive radio in Greece

I've seen Magenta play live about 4 times and they are always great value. Chris Fry is a seriously dazzling guitarist and good to see that Tina is past the worst of her health problems ( I presume).

There are now 4 bands I would love to see in that line up and its always good to discover a few new bands here and there.Good stuffThumbs Up

I have one small gripe - it clashes with the greatest sporting event on the planet - The Ryder Cup. GRRR

I've seen Magenta a few times as well, and they always put on a great show. Totally agree about Chris Fry's guitar, and Rob Reed's not bad on the keys either! Also as you say great to see Tina is well enough to appear.Tickets bought, accommodation booked, looking forward to it.

Cant agree about the Ryder cup though (wake me up when its finished!
