HRH Prog Festival

Classic Rock’s sister title Prog Magazine is proud to present a new boutique event, the HRH Prog Festival, which will take place at the Magna Science Adventure, Rotherham, on April 6-7 2013.

It’s being run by Chic Festivals, the team behind acclaimed weekend events Hard Rock Hell and Hammerfest, plus the annual week-long HRH: Road Trip to Ibiza.

The event aims to offer an interactive experience using the Magna Science Adventure’s unique setting, while offering the broadest possible range of progressive music.

Already confirmed are
Hawkwind, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, The Enid, Caravan, Mostly Autumn, TesseracT, Aeon Zen, Enochian Theory, Order of Voices and Antlered Man for the inaugural event – with many more to follow.

Chic Festivals CEO Jonni Davis says: “We have always felt that the UK market was missing a dedicated prog festival, and as huge fans we wanted to put on something that honoured the world of prog, both old and new.

“We needed a special location to house this style of event. The Magna Science Adventure, a renovated steel foundry will different interactive zones, is the perfect setting for a new experience.”

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
