We are delighted to announce the latest updates from the Summers End Festival to be held on September 14 / 15 / 16th with the line up now all but complete!
We are thrilled to welcome superb British melodic prog-metal band THRESHOLD to the Robin stage, in the special guest slot on Sunday evening. Having recently moved to the Nuclear Blast label for their magnificent new album “Dead Reckoning”, they have begun a new phase in a long career that began in 1993, and has seen them develop a much-deserved following with both prog and metal fans worldwide. This appearance will mark the only UK date on the September leg of their “Dead Reckoning” tour

Magenta vocalist CHRISTINA BOOTH (with the help of a few friends) will make her debut solo appearance at the Robin in the Sunday acoustic slot, showcasing material from her forthcoming solo album, and just possibly a few songs with which Magenta fans will be more familiar!

Unfortunately, due to a clash with a Pendragon appearance, Clive Nolan’s CAAMORA will no longer be able to play the acoustic slot on Saturday night. We are in the process of finding a suitable replacement, to be announced in a few days. We hope Caamora will be with us in 2008!
We are also delighted to announce full details of our PRE SHOW PARTY at the Little Civic, North Street, Wolverhampton on Friday 14th September.
GALAHAD, the hard-edged prog veterans, will headline, showcasing songs from their much-anticipated new album “Empires Never Last”, while support comes from ever-popular (and always hard to categorize) British band JUMP, well known for their exciting live performances.
